Ritchie Brothers News Release
Ritchie Brothers (Scotland) Ltd Awarded Best Roads
Friday 22 June 2007, at a ceremony hosted by West Lothian Council we were
delighted to accept an award in recognition of our hard work and achievements in
the Considerate Contractor Programme. We were awarded
Maintenance Contractor 2007
from our success
in the same category in 2006.
West Lothian Council was the first local authority in Scotland to launch a
partnership scheme with all contractors working in the area. The scheme was
designed to improve safety and quality of work, protect the environment and
structure of the surrounding roads and to minimise inconvenience to road and
footpath users. The scheme has delivered significant improvements reducing
unnecessary disruption generated by works and the response from the public has
shown that the Roads Authority and contractors like ourselves now give much more
consideration to the quality, safety and timing of all the work we carry out.
We have worked hard to
maintain and exceed the standard set by the Considerate Contract Scheme in 2006
and we are delighted that this award has recognised our achievements and efforts
over the last year.
