The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport held their 2016 Annual Awards Dinner in Wellington on October 10th. The Bluetooth Trial for Visitor Drivers, a PPP between the Ministry, the Transport Agency, and three private entities, including Resolve Group, won in its category –  Safety, Security and Environmental Innovation. Peter Bailey and Rick van Barneveld have been closely involved with the project since its inception, and were gratified to note that, as the MC said on the night, the Minister looked very pleased! Henry Pretorius, of the Transport Agency, gave a special shout out to Resolve Group for preparing the winning submission.

Steve has just completed another piece of work in assisting MainRoads Western Australia in re-structuring their road maintenance contracts. In conjunction with Vital Asset Management Ltd, and following on from earlier work, Steve has organised some collaboration between MainRoads and the NZTA, sharing some learnings from the Network Outcomes Contracts (NOCs). It is looking promising that MainRoads will adopt some of the NZTA’s principles and concepts, and Resolve Group looks forward to assisting MainRoads further into 2017.
