Roads Australia has announced two winners of the 2021 John Shaw Medal; Neil Scales OBE and Ray Farrelly OAM.
The John Shaw Medal honours an industry champion who has made a lasting contribution to Australia's roads and is recognised nationally as our industry’s most prestigious honour.
Prior to joining CPEE, Ray championed training and the development of road pavement professionals through his work as CEO of the Australian Asphalt Pavement Association (AAPA) where he established the AAPA Training and Advisory Centre.
"Rays passion, energy and drive to help maintain a depth of knowledge and skills in the pavement industry nationally, over such a long period with AAPA and CPEE is undeniable and inspiring”.
Ray Farrelly was unable to be present in Sydney to receive the award in person - his award was accepted by Geoff Webb, Chair of the CPEE Learning Teaching Curriculum Committee on Ray’s behalf.
