Endurance Pays off for Abley Team

Posted on: December 4, 2014 at 10:16 AM     Tags:

A team of six runners ventured south in the weekend to compete in the inaugural Queenstown International Marathon. It was a spectacular course that started in Arrowtown (for the marathon runners), near the Shotover River (for the half-marathon runners) and Frankton for the 10km runners.  Unfortunately the weather gods were not smiling down on Queenstown on Saturday, but this did not detract from the course, though it did mean a rather soggy finish for all.  Ann-Marie Head completed her first marathon, Ruby Kim her first half marathon and Aimee Dunne her first 10km run.  Other runners included Paul Durdin, Jared White and Nichola Blue who all completed the half marathon. It was a great effort by all and I’m sure one to be repeated next year!

Jeanette Ward awarded Masters of Engineering in Transportation

Posted on: November 20, 2014 at 1:19 PM     Tags:

We are very pleased to announce that Jeanette Ward has recently been awarded her Masters of Engineering in Transportation (MET).  Jeanette’s one year project was on - “A decision making framework for assessing the merits of One-way and Two-way streets”.  Jeanette’s project was motivated by the diverse views on the Christchurch central city one-way street conversion proposal and the need for a robust decision making tool as other New Zealand cities are also investigating conversions.  The research did not conclude which type of street is the best in a generic sense, but focused on what each city needs to consider so it aligns with what is trying to be achieved.  The research involved a literature review, industry interviews and a case study.  The case study was the potential conversion of a pair of one-way streets in Dunedin to two-way.  Congratulations Jeanette we are very proud of you.

Abley team help get McLeans Island Forest back on track

Posted on: October 30, 2014 at 1:52 PM     Tags:

The wind damage in McLeans Island Forest Park late last year was saddening to many members of the Abley team, being regular users of the park’s mountain biking tracks. The recent 12-hour day/nighter and 6 hour blast race event is an annual fixture in our calendar. When a park ranger from ECan approached us recently for engineering advice on the design of a safe road crossing for a temporary walking and cycle track, we were more than happy for Peter Cockrem to donate some time to help get the park up and running again for summer!
