ViaStrada co-founder Axel Downard-Wilke has moved to an idyllic property near Tākaka, Golden Bay. The pandemic has shown that remote work is just as efficient, but we will miss his uproarious laughter in the office (not so much his epic sneezes). Axel remains a director and a key member of our team. Whether you need a signalised intersection design, a bus network review, or a parking strategy - he is just a Teams or Zoom call away. While we all strive to minimise our travel carbon footprint, Axel can still do site work as required. Enjoy the rural life, Axel!
