People from across London are urged to back the Thameslink Programme to win the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) London People’s Choice Award.
Running for the last eight years, the award recognises the civil engineering projects that are transforming the lives of Londoners.
Thameslink Programme has entered the ETCS-ATO system which takes trains through the core London stations under partially automated control, similar to an aeroplane’s autopilot system. The system can safely enable up to eight trains an hour more to use and line than manual drivers and greatly increases passenger capacity. Find out more here.
Thameslink Programme is competing against nine other projects across London which range from re-imagining public spaces to enhancing iconic structures and upgrading sewage treatment among others.
Jonathan Baggs, Director of ICE London, said:
“As part of the ICE London Civil Engineering Awards our People’s Choice award, showcases the top schemes benefiting the local community and highlighting the important contribution that civil engineers make.
I encourage the public to cast their vote for their favourite project to be recognised for the value they have delivered to London.”
Voting opened at www.ice.org.uk/londonawards on Friday 24 April and will close on Monday 18 May at 17:00. Three voters will be chosen at random and will receive an ICE commemorative book, goody bag and, a private tour of the Institution’s headquarters at One Great George Street, Westminster (when safe to do so).
