The new award is the first to celebrate our civil engineering heritage in the region. It's also the first time that nominations have been opened up to the public, as well as local businesses and organisations.

A number of nominations have already been submitted, covering a variety of civil engineering works from the North West and Isle of Man but nominations are still open until midnight, Sunday 13 December.

Darrell Matthews, ICE's North West Regional Director, said: "Our region has some fantastic heritage civil engineering and we've created this new award to help celebrate it.

"Anyone, including our members, can nominate their favourite work of classic civil engineering for an award by emailing a short statement explaining why it deserves to win.

"It could be a feature to do with railways, ports or airports; roads, bridges, canals or tunnels; energy or water systems, flood defences or iconic structures – as long as it's at least 70 years old and you can say why it's been important to society or to the local area, we'd love to hear from you."

The winner will be announced at the ICE North West Civil Engineering Awards Dinner on 26 February 2016.
