Just a quick note on Steve Langford, Shane Jupp, Lewis Horne and all the staff working with them: the way they conduct themselves professionally on site makes my role easier; also the level of reporting is spot on. Please pass on my thanks.

We’ve been really struggling to engage students with careers in construction, especially girls. [Yours was] an inspiring talk about careers in construction and engineering.

Thank you for all the support, the labour, and the personal attention you have delivered to the project and supporting our safety leaders’ meetings. It’s common knowledge that VGC are our best performers from the safety aspect, the delivery aspect and the relationship with the client. Best wishes to all.

Thank you for the presentation this morning on FIR, modern slavery, mental health and wellbeing. It was presented extremely well and the feedback from the site team has been very good.

My husband and I would like to say how impressed we are by the level of workmanship displayed by those working on the M6 upgrade. We use the stretch between J17 and J19 every week, a notoriously busy area, but the delays due to the work being done have been kept to a minimum. The usual stereotype of workers leaning on their shovels has certainly not been in evidence here and the safety of working conditions has been noticeable. Well done all concerned!
