It is with great pleasure that Miles Macadam would like to announce their entry into the 2021 Highways Awards in collaboration with WSP, Kier and Shropshire Council. The Shropshire Carbon Neutral Scheme has been shortlisted for the final which will take place on the 20th of October.

Miles Macadam are very proud of all involved, not only for their drive to reduce emissions, but for selecting Miles Macadam to enable the UK’s first Local Authority Carbon Neutral Surfacing Scheme.
