Bob McPherson accepting the inaugral Ray Moloney Award for Innovation

Bob was selected as the inaugural recipient of the Ray Moloney Award for Innovation in 2005, due to his deep involvement in the development of the PaveMOSS application, which is now known as MXRENEW. PaveMOSS was the brainchild of the Queensland Main Roads department, and whilst many people were involved in itís development, Bob drove the development of the package and instigated the partnership between Infrasoft Australia and Main Roads Queensland that lead to this innovative piece of software.

From the original development work, PaveMOSS has been re-badged at MXRENEW, and further applications such as MXURBAN and Pavement Layer Design (PLD) have been developed from this initial work.

Bob is a very deserving winner of this award, and he has also been a very valuable member of the MX Community over many years.
