Fonterra Co-operative is thrilled that its partnership with the Southland District Council to improve management of the roading network has been nationally recognized.

At this week’s 2016 LGNZ (Local Government New Zealand) Excellence Awards in Dunedin, Southland District Council won the Chorus Excellence Award for Best Practice in Infrastructure Management, for their programme “Changing Direction, The Way Forward for Southland’s Roads”.

The partnership uses smartphone technology onboard Fonterra’s milk tankers to send road quality information to Southland District Council to gain deeper insights into the state of the district’s roads and the pressures placed on them.
