SELWYN TIMES Tuesday November 29 2016 31 SELWYN RURAL LIFE Staff shuttle service reduces traffic on main road A shuttle service provided by dairy company Synlait removes an estimated 360 cars a week from SH1/ Main South Road, one of Canterbury’s busiest roads, improving road safety for all users of the road. Introduced on August 1, it provides employees with a free daily round-trip shuttle service from Rolleston to Synlait’s Dunsandel site, 50km south of Christchurch, several times in the morning and evening. A new 50-seat coach, which arrived on November 10, will replace a temporary coach, which has operated for the last three months. “Everyone home safe, every day, is our number-one priority. Our shuttle service supports this focus by reducing traffic on Main South Road (SH1) and also has a positive impact on the environment,” managing director and CEO John Penno said. “Many of our employees live in Christchurch, Rolleston and the wider Selwyn region. Initiatives like this improve road safety not just for our team, but for everyone on the road.” On average, 72 cars are removed from Main South Road throughout each weekday, particularly during peak morning and evening traffic times. The environmental benefit* is estimated to be the equivalent of planting 1255 trees, or eliminating 25 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, a year. Mr Penno noted the figures would increase as more employees took advantage of the shuttle service. “Our team has almost doubled in the last two years to more than 430 people. With our next growth phase – a three-year, $300 million programme – underway we’ll continue investing in our team,” he said. Synlait’s transport partner, Hilton Haulage, operates the shuttle service and oversaw the delivery of the new coach. “It’s a great coach that will make the round trip even more comfortable and relaxing for employees. It’s been a rewarding project and is just one example of how we partner with our customers to achieve an exceptional result,” CEO of Hilton Haulage Scott Crampton said. Synlait acknowledged that support from both Hilton Haulage and Selwyn District Council made the shuttle service possible. *Figures based on Monday to Friday shuttle usage since August 1, 2016. Average car emissions calculated as 206.649 CO2 grams / km (9 L / 100 km efficiency) and coach emission calculated as 885.7 CO2 grams / km (34 L / 100 km efficiency). Average tree absorption of CO2 calculated as 20.3 kg of CO2 / year. From pig farmer to top accountant A Leeston accountant has recently been awarded the Massey University prize of Top Accountancy Graduate for 2015. Lay Associates accountant Simon Dunlop also received the prestigious Dean’s Scholar Award for 2015, one of only 15 Massey business graduates who average A-grade or higher, out of a pool of about 11,000 business students enrolled at the Massey Business School. Accounting was not Simon’s first career – he comes from a farming background, where he spent his earlier working life heavily involved in pig farming. Having a keenness for the analytical side of the farming business prompted him to commence further studies, culminating in the attainment of his Bachelor of Accountancy from Massey. Simon works as an accountant in Leeston for Lay Associates and is studying towards his Chartered Accountancy qualification. He also supports his wife Lynne with her accounting needs in her business, Leeston Pharmacy. Michael Lay, Director of Lay Associates says he is lucky to have someone of Simon’s calibre on the team. “He brings maturity, a strong background in agri-business and an outstanding academic record. What more could you want for a rural practice. Simon’s academic achievements are outstanding. “Our team has a great record of academic achievement, Justine Caunce completed her accounting diploma whilst working at Lay Associates and also topped the class with and A-grade or higher pass rate. It’s great to be surrounded by good people.” Employing the Best For all your accountancy needs. 80 Rolleston Drive, Ph 347 4501 | 66 High Street, Leeston Ph 324 3030 Not just a tyre shop!
