The Port of London Authority’s (PLA) Thames Vision project has won an award from the City livery company of the transport industry, the Worshipful Company of Carmen.
The Sir Henry Royce Award for transport innovation was presented by Lord Mayor of London, Alderman Lord Mountevans to PLA chairman, Christopher Rodrigues CBE and Vision project director, Katherine Riggs, at the Livery and Awards Banquet at Mansion House. The Thames Vision project was launched in 2015 to plan, with stakeholders, the development of the tidal river over the next 20 years. Previous winners of Carmen awards include the Port of Tilbury, Drayson Racing Technologies and DPD UK.
PLA chairman, Christopher Rodrigues said:
“We’ve been overwhelmed by the response to the Thames Vision project. Everyone has engaged in discussions around the Vision with a spirit of collective endeavor and the result is a really powerful, exciting view of what the river’s future will look like. Our shared challenge is to turn the Vision into reality for the benefit of London, the South East and the wider country."
