mobile weather station
23 February 2021
This mobile weather station provides accurate weather data and road surface temperature that enables Road Science to make better decisions around specifying binder grades
This is important as it directly correlates with NZTA M1-A specification regarding the binder grade selection for climate zones.
The Road Science mobile weather station provides on-site real time data analytics from the various sensors that are available. Data is then feed back into our online weather application Zeus - www.roadscience.co.nz/zeus providing us with more accurate data to give to our crews on the ground.

Black backed seagull chicks on top of tank
24 January 2021
Steve King has been supervising work at a Lyttelton tank farm on a newly leased 5,000T tank (previously used to store heavy fuel oil). Extra bitumen storage is needed in the south island so this will be converted into a bitumen tank over the next six-months. Once access to the tank was granted he discovered three tiny Karoro (black backed seagull chicks) in a nest on the roof of the tank. Normally Karoro nest on the ground so on top of a tank, right beside the harbour really is prime real estate.
Steve called the Department of Conservation for more information and they advised that if the chicks had plenty of room to move away from workers they would be fine. They also said they should be ready to fly around end of January.
Scaffolding started early January and in the pre-start briefing Steve laid out the plans to look after the chicks. Once the scaffolders reached the final height, they would only work on one side of the tank at a time - this let the chicks stay well away.
Steve said it has been really easy to think about what the chicks need and to adapt the work around it without affecting the project timeline. Once flying properly they will still hang around the area, being fed by mum and dad for another month so he’s looking forward to watching them grow.
