The announcement by our new Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern that climate change would be one of the Government’s top priorities, has led to a lot of discussion about what shape and form that this may take and how it will affect businesses.
The new government’s announcement that they will be charging Auckland drivers a regional fuel tax is a response to the funding gap required to address the transport infrastructure needs in New Zealand’s biggest city. Auckland has complex transport problems which require large scale, expensive infrastructure solutions such as a City Rail Link and light rail to the airport, and a regional fuel tax targets travellers who use the local infrastructure.
Abley Transportation Consultants are thrilled to have our innovative work recognised at the "Bike to the Future" Awards, announced at the Asia-Pacific Cycle Congress (APCC).

Haris Zia, Senior Transportation Engineer at Abley, was invited by the Department of State Growth, Tasmania to attend the Road Safety Levy Workshop in Hobart on 28th September 2017.

At Abley, we see alot of Curriculum Vitae’s (CV's) from a wide range of applicants. CV’s play an important role for any application but are particularly important for graduates because many have limited work experience so it can be harder to produce a well-rounded CV.
Every year, staff from Abley and Interpret have the opportunity to head away for a fun-filled weekend together. This varies in location from Tekapo to Hanmer Springs to Boyle River, but the aim is always the same – to have some memorable adventures with great people, and to build relationships between the staff. This has become even more important as the company has grown, with staff spread across two brands and two offices. It’s critical to take the chance to strengthen connections between the different parts of the company.
