The Road Safety Knowledge Centre has been shortlisted in the road safety category in the CIHT Awards 2013.
The CIHT Awards reward and promote to a wider industry audience the achievements of those working in the highways and transportation sectors.
The Knowledge Centre has been short listed for the John Smart Road Safety Award, which is dedicated to the memory of John Smart, the well-known and popular director of policy and technical affairs at the CIHT who died suddenly in November 2012 at the age of 55.
Launched in September 2010, the ‘Knowledge Centre’ is a comprehensive online directory of road safety information and resources. It is owned and managed by Road Safety GB and financially supported by Colas.
Access to the Knowledge Centre is free of charge and available to all. There are currently 3,448 subscribers, 436 member organisations and 2,101 items listed in the Knowledge Centre. The Help Forum in the Knowledge Centre has received 337 help requests from subscribers, which have generated 1,383 responses.
Nick Rawlings, Knowledge Centre project manager, said: “Naturally everyone involved with the project is delighted with this short listing, which recognises the vision of Road Safety GB to create a useful resource for road safety professionals across the UK and much further afield.”
The CIHT Awards will be presented at a ceremony on 13 June at Madame Tussauds in London.
