Nina Barbier and Nik Vishwanath were in Auckland this week trialling fast break emulsion with the Downer team.
This product is designed to offer extremely fast curing which can be opened to uncontrolled traffic within minutes, it has the potential to significantly reduce disruption from resealing the road and to allow sealing all year round.
Te Wiki o te Reo Maori
17 September 2020
In celebration of Te Wiki o te Reo Māori we would like to share Nik Vishwanath's story. He is on the road to full te reo immersion and is currently studying Te Pūtaketanga o te Reo for a New Zealand Certificate in Te Reo.
Nik wanted to gain a deeper understanding of Māori culture and learn more about New Zealand's history. He also adds that he wanted to challenge himself to learn a new language and encourages others to do the same. "Through the people I've met on the course, it's evident that te reo is alive and thriving, and it's something I want to be part of as a New Zealander.
"There are really no barriers to learning, a lot of the courses are accessible and free, run by passionate teachers that create a learning environment no matter where you are from or who you are."
Here's a photo of Nik from this week at the Downer Transport Services Central Region Leadership Conference.
Awesome work Nik!
