Lead Road Safety Auditor
BTech (Civil Engineering)
Andy’s early career was as a civil designer, preparing road, stormwater, earthworks and service plans for a number of property development companies in Sydney. Andy also had 7 years at the Department of Aviation, designing runway, taxiway, roads and carparks, as well as occasional aerial photography flights.
After moving to Port Macquarie, Andy continued as civil designer in the land development industry, before joining Port Macquarie Hastings Council, where he was involved in the planning and design of civil infrastructure, including local and major roads, carparks, roundabouts, boat ramps, Port Macquarie Town Centre Master Plan, Laurieton CBD upgrade, Hastings Cycleway plans and local area traffic management schemes, all which involved assessment of future traffic, concept options through to final design plans.
In 2000, Andy was promoted to the position of Development Engineer after gaining further civil engineering qualifications. The role involved working closely with developers, consultants and contractors to ensure infrastructure was designed and provided in accordance with the required standards. It was during this time that Andy became closely involved with planning of road layouts, traffic management and road safety.
In 2009, Andy joined RoadNet’s Port Macquarie office as a Project Manager, working on a variety of projects including road designs, traffic management plans and traffic impact assessments. During his 6 years with RoadNet, Andy also worked 12 months as Traffic Manager on the Pacific Highway Kempsey Bypass project, as well as 6 months in a similar role on the Nambcucca Heads to Urunga project. The experience gained working on major highway construction projects was invaluable, particularly in regard to construction methods, management of traffic control, worksite safety and ensuring safe and efficient movement of highway traffic through a major road project.
