The tallest mining headgear in the world, a 515 m long tunnel under the sea, two innovative pedestrian bridges (one equal to the longest in the world), an upgraded soccer stadium stand, and a 'world first' in railway sleepers are among the impressive concrete construction projects and concepts that have won 2007 Fulton awards.

The prestigious Fulton awards are presented every two years by the Concrete Society of Southern Africa (CSSA) for excellence in the use of concrete in five categories : Civil Engineering Projects, Building Projects, Design Aspects, Construction Techniques, and Aesthetic Appeal. This year's awards - which included a Fulton Award in a special category - were made on 9 June at a gala banquet at the Champagne Sports resort in the Drakensberg. The Cement & Concrete Institute (C&CI) is the anchor sponsor of the awards.
