REAAA ROADSHOW 2018
The 2018 Roadshow theme was “The Transportation Transformation” and the presentations were well received at the five venues.
The seminars commenced in Auckland on 15 August and finished in Dunedin on 21 August.
This year the $300 cash prize for the winners of the Young Presenter Competition was kindly sponsored by the local Engineering NZ branches at Waikato and Canterbury.
The winners were:
- Nikhil Vishwanath, Road Science ~ Auckland seminar
- Ann-Elise Reynolds, Whakatane District Council ~ Rotorua seminar
- Zane Davidson, WSP Opus ~ Wellington seminar
- Andrew Bradfield, WSP Opus ~ Christchurch seminar
The presentation from international speaker, Koorosh Olyai “From Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) to Integrated Journey Management (IJM) and Successful Connected Automated Vehicles (CAV)” was a highlight with one attendee noting the roadshow was “very relevant and targeted to the future – most enjoyable and informative”.
It is commonly noted that the roadshow enables great networking opportunities and brings clients, contractors and consultants together under the one roof. This makes a great forum for the exchange of information and innovative ideas.
