The re-alignment of SH88 north of Frederick St in Dunedin, intended to create a corridor around the new Forsyth Barr Stadium at University Plaza in time for the Rugby World Cup, is now complete.

The realignment of SH88 has seen the roadway raised up to 4m, adjacent to the new stadium, and retained with a segmental retaining system, which posed a few challenges for the installation of the guardrail system on the roadway above.

The four laning of Russley / Johns Road on SH 1 in Christchurch is a four stage project. With work on an active road taking place over 1600m, the safety of the Joint Venture (JV) staff and others is paramount. Doug Forsyth, Site Manager for McConnell Downer Joint Venture explains, “we looked at various traffic management systems to create a safe workzone for our people and the option we chose was CSP Pacific’s AmorZone™ TL-2 Plastic Barrier and Terminal End.”

The rollout of ultra fast broadband to more than 1.4 million Aucklanders got underway last week in Albany as the first fibre in the city was deployed by Steven Joyce, the Minister for Communications and Information Technology, under the government’s Ultra Fast Broadband (UFB) initiative.

“With the installation of 150 fibre optic cabinets and associated civil works in Auckland over the next year we will require our contractors to comply with the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management (COPTTM)”, said Jeff Roberts, Deployment Manager UFB for Visionstream Pty Ltd.

CSP Pacific's ABSORB 350® crash cushion is a water-filled, non-redirective, gating crash cushion that has been tested and approved to NCHRP350 and been used in New Zealand as an end terminal for temporary traffic management barrier systems for more than nine years, but to date has not been listed in the NZTA specification M23.

An interim authority has now been issued by the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) to use the ABSORB 350® crash cushion as a TL-2 or TL-3 temporary barrier end treatment pending its listing.

Timber and standard steel post X-350 End Terminals must be installed at a height of 27 and ¾ ” (705mm) even when transitioning to or from the Nu Guard 31™ Guardrail system. The change in height from a 27 and ¾ ” X-350 to Nu Guard 31™ is to occur over the first two lengths of Nu Guard 31™ at the end of the X-350.
