Ashburton District Council will continue as a member of the Mid-South Canterbury Roading Collaboration group, helping ensure beneficial outcomes for road users in the region.

Ashburton Roading Manager Brian Fauth says the Memorandum of Understanding Collaboration on Roading Matters between Ashburton, Mackenzie, Timaru and Waimate District Councils provides opportunities to improve cost effectiveness and build consistency of roads across council boarders.

“NZTA have been encouraging territorial local authorities to look for efficiencies in the transportation sector. This collaboration structure is being used around New Zealand, and our group has been implementing measures to build regional consistency and deliver cost saving benefits to our communities.”

ADC endorsed the Collaboration between the four councils in September 2014, and two years on, a decision was required as to whether Council would remain in the group.

“The benefits of sharing knowledge and innovations, as well as streamlining roading efforts throughout our region is a wonderful initiative for ADC to be a part of and Council is looking forward to continuing its work with the other District Councils.”

Ashburton District Council will remain a part of the Memorandum of Understanding Collaboration on Roading Matters for another two years.​
