A group of Abley and Interpret staff attempted to solve a murder on Saturday 29th July. Set in the 1970s, everyone embraced the era with costumes and had a great night out at the Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre in Ferrymead, Christchurch.
In early August, Paul Durdin will be presenting as a finalist for the ‘Data Visualization Project Award’ at the 2017 Association of Transportation Safety Information Professionals (ATSIP) Traffic Records Forum in New Orleans. The conference brings together data analysts, state and local law enforcement officials, engineers, motor vehicle officials, emergency medical services providers, judicial administrators, and highway safety professionals from across the United States and international communities.
New Zealand is hosting an FIA Region II Asia-Pacific round table meeting in Queenstown on 31 July/1 August.

Well done to Dave Smith and Robyn Hyde, who had their research report published by the New Zealand Transport Agency recently. "Research Report 616: Assessing the value of public transport as a network" explored the elements that influence the value of a public transport service and developed a framework that proposes to extend the NZ Transport Agency's economic evaluation procedures.
Recent work by Abley in collaboration with NZTA and other agencies has been published in the latest edition of the Journal of Australasian College of Road Safety (page 36). NZTA’s Speed Management Guide guides and supports local authorities in their efforts to put in place speed management measures. The technical framework of the guide provides a single assessment for determining safe and appropriate speed at a network level, and aligns travelling speeds with road function. This work focuses on the technical framework to the Waikato region and includes analysis of intervention strategies to road sections where speed management would have a high benefit in terms of safety and efficiency.
