Clive Myrie announced as Highways Awards host

  • Thursday June 6, 2024

One of the BBC’s most experienced foreign correspondents and presenters, Clive Myrie, will host a prestigious Highways Awards ceremony at Park Plaza, Westminster Bridge, London to celebrate the projects, products, teams, and individuals improving the Highways industry and the lives of people across the UK.

Highways Magazine, the UK’s leading publication for the road and traffic industry, will award 17 categories, ranging from ‘’Road Safety Scheme of the Year’’ to ‘’Best Use of New Technology Award’’, as part of its annual Highways Awards. The IHE is pleased to sponsor the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ award.

Clive has made features and programmes for Panorama, Newsnight and Radio 4, and

is the host of long running quiz show Mastermind. He presented the documentary, The Crown Jewels for BBC1, which was screened as part of the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. His travel series Clive Myrie’s Italian Roadtrip was a hit on BBC2, and one of the most popular shows on the BBC. Clive, alongside other presenters, will lead the BBC’s election night coverage on 4 July.

This year, Highways Awards has introduced two new categories. The ‘Digital Transformation’ award will recognise organisations that have made a positive impact on working practices or service outcomes, in or outside their own operation, using digital technology and data analysis. And the ‘’Line Marking and Street Design’’ award will be celebrating professional excellence in place and road design and its impact on community social value, safety and civic transformation. Full list of categories is available here.

The ceremony will take place at Park Plaza, Westminster Bridge, London on 24 September. The deadline for entries is 7 June and table bookings are already open.
