We recently celebrated Buddhima's award from RTSA (The Railway Technical Society of Australasia) for his outstanding contribution to Australian Railway Engineering. The Hon. Andrew Constance, Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, presented the award to Buddhima at the RTSA Annual Dinner at the NSW Parliament House. You can see Buddhima's group of support at the award ceremony below (also supported Buddhima but not in this photo were his wife Manori, Prof Chris Cook and Prof Tim Marchant). Providing additional support to the "heavy metal" award is our long-time supporter from the Railway Industry Mr David Christie.
