Two engineering firms from Fredericton, New Brunswick were in Durban, South Africa to represent the Atlantic provinces at the 22nd World Road Congress. The congress gave representatives of 150 governments and consulting firms a venue for exchanging road and bridge building expertise.
Robert Grant of ADI Limited and Patrick Chouinard, P.Eng. and Val Bosse, P.Eng. of Neill and Gunter attended the week long event as representatives of the Departments of Transportation of the four Atlantic provinces and they helped to man the Atlantic Canadian booth in the Canadian pavilion.
The weeklong World Congress is held every fourth year at a different location. In 1999 it was held in Kuala Lumpur, and in 2007 it will be held in Paris.
Also in the news at ADI, a senior member of the firm’s Moncton, New Brunswick office has been appointed to the Transportation Appeal Tribunal of Canada. Boyd Touchi, P.Eng. was appointed by the federal Minister of Transportation to the quasi-judicial body, which hears complaints about rulings made under federal transportation law.
