Transport Planning and Engineering designs and builds routes around Scotland

A sustainable transport consultancy has been shortlisted for an award in this year’s UK Social Enterprise Awards.

Transport Planning and Engineering (TP&E) works with local authorities to design and build cycle routes around Scotland.

Part of Cycling Scotland, TP&E managed more than £2 million of investment last year and has developed 150km of active travel routes since it was formed in 2006.

The consultancy has also trained more than 1000 students in planning and designing infrastructure.

To have our work recognised in this way will help us continue to expand our work and get more people cycling.

Profits are reinvested directly back into Cycling Scotland projects to get more people on their bikes.

Peter Leslie, TP&E’s engineering manager, said: “Being shortlisted for Environmental Social Enterprise of the year is a huge honour for TP&E.

“To have our work recognised in this way will help us continue to expand our work and get more people cycling.”

Peter Holbrook, Social Enterprise UK’s chief executive, congratulated the consultancy on being shortlisted.

He added: “This year, the quality of the applications was outstanding. Social enterprises are continuing to grow, change lives and are proof that another way, a better way, of doing business is possible.”

The finals will take place on 28 November in London’s Covent Garden.
