Klaruw Award-2011



Klaruw RMS has won Safety Project of the Year for a joint submission with Area 10 MAC contractor, A-one+, in the recent CIHT (Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation) North Western Branch 2011 Awards.

The award recognises Klaruw’s work with A-one+ in implementing KlaruwTex190 (K190) computer controlled bush hammering at selected sites in Highways Agency Area 10 to improve surface friction and reduce loss of control incidents.

The award entry outlined the safety gains, including significant crash incident reductions, and associated cost savings from K190 retexturing of 15 sites across an 18 month period. It also demonstrated how Klaruw’s controlled mechanical retexturing contributed to other value management criteria - sustainability, value for money and reduction of disruption.

The awards were announced at the third CIHT North Western Branch awards dinner held at Park Royal Hotel Warrington on April 8th 2011.

Klaruw RMS’s regional manager, Phil Mason, had extra cause for celebration receiving the CIHT Certificate of Merit from CIHT president, Geoff Allister.

In presenting Phil with the award, the branch committee commented that it was ‘in recognition of his hard work on the CIHT North Western Branch committee and on committees at national level, his support year on year for CIHT organised events and above all else, his contribution over the years on the Events Sub Committee. The branch committee would like to congratulate Phil for this significant achievement.’

Delighted to pick up two awards on the night, Phil Mason said: “What a night! I just had no idea. What makes it more gratifying is that the Certificate of Merit was proposed by my peers. Regarding the Road Safety Award, I simply collected it, with Phil Reynolds of A-one+, on behalf of everyone else who contributed so meaningfully with the Klaruw/A-one+ submission. A wonderful joint effort.”

Originally a county council divisional engineer for motorways, Phil Mason (CEng MICE FIHT) joined Klaruw RMS as managing director in the mid 80s to develop the market for K190 retexturing in the UK and Ireland.
