Award for £1.5m waterfront design

Haven't seen this anywhere else;

THE £1.5m regeneration of Nottingham's Meadow Lane waterfront has received a design award from the Institution of Civil Engineers.

It was presented as the project's partners visit the site to see the start of the construction phase.

The Civil Engineering Environmental Quality Assessment Award found the project had exceeded standards by 60%, which is regarded as "very good".

Organisations involved in the development include Nottingham City Council, Nottingham Waterside Limited, Homes & Communities Agency and East Midlands Development Agency (emda).

Morrison Construction is the main construction contractor.

The project, which is due to be complete by August, will improve facilities and expand access to Nottingham city centre for walkers, cyclists, boaters and disabled visitors by improving the link between the existing canal towpath and Victoria Embankment.
