Due to its diverse geography, Lees Valley Station is home to a range of livestock enterprises including a sheep herd numbering close to 20,000, 1,000 beef cows, 600 deer hinds, 1,700 dairy heifers, and 2,200 beef bulls.

Catering to the needs of this very large herd, including quenching their thirst, is something Zachary Jones, Station Manager for Lees Valley Station, is constantly working on. So when it came to solving the problem of producing water troughs large enough to suit the size of the herds and assist the gravity fed water system the station utilises, CSP Pacific was asked to help.

The Back to School road safety campaign running during the early part of school terms aims to raise awareness of the vulnerability of children on roads near schools and encourage motorists to slow down. It makes the point that children may not have their mind on the dangers of the road and motorists need to be extra vigilant.

Auckland Transport (AT) is grateful to Mario Bennett from CSP Pacific who offered to partner with AT in the campaign by making their range of Variable Message Signs (VMS) available free of charge to schools when not in use.

Work has begun on a critical 3km stretch of Wellington’s busiest transport corridor - State Highway 1 between Aotea Quay and Ngauranga. The upgrade will help relieve the pressure of some of the highway and city road networks. To ensure motorists are safe during the upgrade process CSP Pacific’s X-TENuator crash cushion has been used to protect the end of a section of concrete barrier.

In a wild patch of weather that swept over the country in August last year a lightning strike on one of Wellington’s iconic wind sculptures - situated along Cobham Drive in Evans Bay - caused it to explode. The structure was completely destroyed with the event prompting agencies across Wellington to review their infrastructure to ensure the protection of precious assets in such circumstances.

Road safety barrier transitions provide progressive stiffening between barrier systems of different rigidity. The difference in barrier rigidity will be evident in different deflections for the same crash impact energy. The greater the difference in stiffness, the greater will be the difference in crash deflections. A vehicle impacting near the connection between barrier systems of different rigidity will “pocket” without the appropriate transition. To prevent this, a transition in the leading (i.e. approach) direction is designed to progressively stiffen the barrier when transitioning from a weaker to stiffer system (e.g. W-section to concrete).

The New Zealand Transport Agency has developed a standard detail for transitions between rigid and semi-rigid systems.
