With the opening of SH1 to and from Kaikōura on Friday 15 December, alumnus David 'Rolly' Rowland (2004) can take a bow.

Rolly was seconded from Beca to be Seawall & Coastal Structures Team Lead for NCTIR (North Canterbury Transport Infrastructure Recovery) that designed the new sea walls and other coastal structures along SH1.

KiwiRail has produced a fascinating video of the entire rebuild. Click here to watch. It's eight minutes long, so get yourself a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy.

When you've finished watching you can read more about him here in our 2017 Alumni Magazine. To read the entire magazine, go here.

Congratulations from us all, Rolly.
