2014 - Australia - Good Practice Resealing Guideline
This report provides asset managers with practical guidance in the development and delivery of effective resealing programs. It builds on accumulated experience of previous studies and a review of sprayed seal performance throughout Australasia.
While an extensive body of sprayed seal knowledge and experience exists, there are significant issues which have serious consequences for the state and sustainability of road surfacings, and pavement assets, and ultimately their safe and efficient use. Examples of good practice do exist and road agencies are encouraged to review their procedures and the capabilities of their systems and human resources, with a view to adopting good practice and building capability.
Chris has an adventurous spirit which generally involves cycling, running, or just being out there having a good time. Read his 'Race Reports' below. This is a link to his SPOT GPS tracker.

He also has stories of his life as 'An Overtravelled Engineer Working for the World Bank' at World Bank Traveller.
We are Lis Pedersen and Chris Bennett. We’ve been married over 30 years and each found our way to New Zealand in the early 1980s from Denmark and Canada respectively. Golden Bay has been our happy place for almost 20 years and we are now based in Pohara just above the beach, with our two cats Coco and Max.
