NEW RELEASE New car perfect for volunteer duties Worthy winner: Robin Brooke, right, next to car winner Craig Johnson, with Fun Club members Christopher Brady, Felicity Barnett, Mark Yaxley and Neil Dorset. It s been six years since Craig Johnson had a car after the last one was wiped out by someone while texting. So winning a Suzuki Swift at the Warkworth New World Great Car Giveaway, will mean a change of life for him. The Warkworth man is a volunteer for members of the Warkworth intellectually handicapped group Fun Club, regularly cooking their lunch. The group meets once a week but doesn t qualify for any funding, he says. As he doesn t have a car, he has been walking from the super- market to his Woodcocks Rd home with groceries, often making several trips. Mr Johnson hopes to extend his voluntary work with the new car. And he will be able to visit his wife,who is in fulltime care at a Manu- kau resthome, without rely- ing on lifts from others. Regular customer a 'deserving winner' New keys: Helensville's Lily McLeod couldn't believe she had won the Suzuki Swift as part of the Orewa New World Great Car Giveaway. Helensville s Lily McLeod drove her new Suzuki Swift home after winning the Orewa New World Great Car Giveaway. Lily couldn t believe she had won one of the 135 red Suzuki Swift that was given away as part of a nationwide promotion, where one lucky shopper from every New World took one home. They called me last Wednesday but I wasn t home, I was actually shopping on that morning. But after they finally got through to me I was shocked to hear I had won. I got the shakes -- I ve never won something like this before, Lily says. Lily drives to New World Orewa with daughter Angela every week from Helensville. I like going with my daughter -- we ve done it for 14 years. New World Orewa owner-operator Garry Christini says they ve had a blast running the giveaway in the store. We are just de- lighted to be giving it to Lily today. It could not have gone to a more deserving person. Lily simply spent $50 at New World from October 11 to Novem- ber 7 and swiped her Fly Buys card to get an entry in to New World s Great Car Giveaway. -- Caralise Moore Gateway Toll Rd wins award An engineering excel- lence award has been won by those involved in the Northern Gateway Toll Rd. It won the Transpor- tation Infrastructure category of the New Zea- land Engineering Excel- lence Awards, announ- ced at a gala dinner in Wellington attended by more than 350 people. The 7.5km section of motorway traverses steep land which includes significant waterways and sites of ecological and historic significance, from the Orewa turnoff to Puhoi. It bypasses the seaside townships of Orewa, Hatfields Beach, Wai- wera and the Wender- holm Regional Park. The project was multi- faceted, involving tun- nels, bridges of unusual design, major culverts and substantial earth- works, the awards cer- emony heard. Best-practice environ- mental engineering me- thods were used to pro- tect sensitive environ- mental areas both during construction and on an ongoing basis. The road user is greeted with panoramic views of iconic structures and the stunning landscape. The alignment chosen allows heavy vehicles to maintain a greater speed, reducing the dif- ferential speed to light vehicles, with benefits for road safety. Travel times are shortened and traffic congestion on the Hibis- cus Coast Highway reduced. It involved the first application in New Zea- land of pre-cast segmen- tal box girder construc- tion using a self- launching overhead gan- try to form the Waiwera viaducts. The Hillcrest bridge, which has been dubbed the pukeko bridge because of its red legs, is an unusual structure formed to the contours of the land. Construction was done through the Northern Gateway Alliance, a partnership including the NZ Transport Agency, Fulton Hogan, Leighton Contractors Pty, URS New Zealand, Tonkin and Taylor and Boffa Miskell.
