Lantra – the training organisation chosen by Australasian roading authorities to develop a training accreditation programme for personnel involved in road safety barrier installations - met again this month to continue with their work in ensuring people working in the industry are fully trained to do so.
Julian Chisnall from NZ Transport Agency who was recently appointed as the new chair of the steering committee says progress is being made with manuals and product information being produced for accepted products.
Austroads has partnered with Lantra (UK) to develop the national accreditation scheme that will require the certification of all people engaged in the design, installation, and maintenance of any road safety barrier system used in Australia and New Zealand.
“All updates on the programme and our progress will be posted via the Austroads website,” explains Julian. “This central portal is the best way to keep people fully informed.”
