Engineers Sprint to Civenex 2014

Visitors to Western Sydney International Dragway this week would have noticed a few changes.

Two weeks ago Shane Wynd was defending his lead in the Modified Aeroflow Sportsman Drag Racing Championship.

This week the Dragway was host to hundreds of exhibitors showing the latest techniques and equipment for public works engineers at Civenex.

Thousands of visitors browsed to the backdrop of Top Fuel dragsters practising on the drag strip. 

Civenex is the premium trade show in NSW for engineers and staff working for public authorities and local government.

2014 is the 59th year that Civenex has been run. The event was previously known as the Engineers' Field Days.

Dial Before You Dig NSW/ACT has been at Civenex since 1999.

In 2014 we were assisted by wingless sprint car competitor Courtney O'Hehir, complete with her sprint car.

Treasurer John Croxson and Director Trent Wray assisted Dominic Puiu and Otre Moussa to answer the questions of the large crowd. They also handed out over 1,000 show bags.
