Schick Construction completes new roundabout at Tirau crash hotspotGoing bush on the Coromandel: Training40 Waterview student connection Industry experience right outside the classroom door. Traffic modelling, he says, is not an exact science, but its a crucial starting point for road design.
We learnt these interesting facts from an interview in this issue conducted by Lawrence Shaffler, who reports in the second part of what is a technical series on how a road gets built, and all the steps, considerations, compromises that go into the finished product.
We figure that many of you will know your own part of the puzzle, but maybe not every aspect of roading construction. Youll find Lawrences feature on page In an unrelated, but complementary piece, we have an article supplied by NZTA reporting on British roading expert Matthew Lugg and his recent four-week tour through the country.
He was very impressed with the standard of our asset management. The value of good asset management is just so well recognised here, its widely accepted and its understanding is quite a bit more nuanced than in the UK, he says. And in a nod to the quality of our roads, he adds; I will definitely have very positive things to report back.
Ive been very impressed with the condition of your roads; I think our UK local highway managers would dream about having roads like these. Presumably Lugg didnt tackle Otagos Skippers Canyon road while he was here A skinny ledge blasted out of the vertical rock face, built in the s to access what was believed to be the worlds richest bullion river the Shotover.
Read about this historic road built by hand on page 34 to see why its described as being as unbelievably scary as it is beautiful. No doubt by now those of you planning to attend one or more of a number of industry conferences will have already made the commitment to attend.
And its this last one which may have the most far-reaching effect. If youre affected by, or want to affect the outcome, all members are encouraged to vote either in person, or via proxy, at the respective AGMs.
Theres more on this on pages 4 and As NZCF CEO Jeremy Sole puts it; The different, merged, civil contracting representative environment will require an approach that is trusting, collaborative and openly engaging with any tough internal issues to the point that internal and external participants and clients have confidence the organisations voice is well considered and truly representative.
Your vote could make all the difference in securing the outcome you believe will best represent your interests for many years to come. Regular contributor Gavin Riley interviews Inspector Gwynne Pennell, the forthright head of the CVIU, who has very complimentary words for the transport operators she meets in the course of her work.
The new training organisation, Connexis, that resulted from the merger of InfraTrain and the Electricity Supply ITO, is explained on page 4 and again on page 45 through its new chief executive, Helmut Modlik.
Serving the wider infrastructure industry, the new organisation is promoted as a one stop shop providing training, qualifications and support initially for the civil construction, electricity supply and telecommunications sectors.

Opinions expressed in this magazine are not necessarily those of the shareholding organisations. Offer is valid until 31 August For the proposal to go ahead member voting in both organisations will require 75 percent in favour.
If passed, it will be the end of a years history that started when road surfacing members of the federation formed the Bitumens Contractors Association inbefore rebranding as the Pavement and Bitumen Contractors Association, and later Roading New Zealand.
The two associations believe there are many benefits from a merger and it will reduce membership churn, attract new members, save common members two subscription costs, and shift the allocation of voting rights to the direction of a stronger overall representation. To speak with one strong united voice and to ensure the new organisation is appropriately funded and relevant to our members and customers.
This proposal came about as the result of a closer relationship between the two associations that sparked off in when NZFC developed its Healthy Industry Statement.
This led to further dialogue with the roading association in that saw the two entities formally adopt a joint vision for a Healthy Civil Construction Sector and a guide for issues to be addressed together.
Since then, the two associations have worked together on a number of initiatives, including a successful submission to Transport Minister Steven Joyce for significant industry funding, which led to the set up of the Road Maintenance Task Force, as well as industry training and health and safety initiatives.
Finally, in a committee was formed made up of three NZCF representatives and three RNZ representatives to explore the feasibility of a new merger. While bringing the two organisations together will create increased efficiency and reduce duplication of cost and effort, it is also expected to require additional funding.
Another aspect of the proposal is a new, combined, name. This would be the third name the NZCF has operated under in its year history and the merger committee intends submitting a number of options to the AGM for consideration.[No] Michael(？(？) × /11/08(sat) [email protected] comment2, corporate living apartments atlanta, 8-[, fox26 news houston, , cni.
Developing an MDM Strategy: Key Components for Success. Introduction. At the technical view, the drivers and fundamentals of master data management (MDM) can be summarized as processes for consolidating variant versions of instances of core data objects, distributed across the enterprise into a unique representation.
The data hub. Data Governance is identified as the core component of Data Management, tying together the other 9 disciplines, such as Data Architecture Management, Data Quality Management, Reference & Master Data Management, etc., as shown in .
Sultanate of Oman established the eGovernance Framework, a set of standards / best practices and process management systems to enhance the delivery of government services in alignment with the mission of grupobittia.com (Sultanate of Oman Digital Oman Strategy and eGovernment).
