Regional director John Laverty said: “We’ve been delighted with the quality and range of this year’s entries, which demonstrate how civil engineering has a huge impact on our lives.

“Whenever we turn on a tap, get on a train, drive down the road, or walk along a canal, civil engineers have made that possible. We hope these awards go some way to reflect that.”

The regional winners will be announced in June.
