Canberra is known for its beautiful landscape, and if you have ever wondered who repairs and keeps our paths safe and liveable here in the ACT, it’s all thanks to engineers like Vivian and the team that supports her.

Vivian has been working at Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) for almost two years, where she is responsible for managing contractors to maintain 4,468,000 m2 of community paths in the ACT. This includes repairs and maintenance to make sure the paths are safe for people to use at all hours of the day. The work involves making sure the path network is safe, free of trip hazards, and wide enough to allow people to pass without leaving the path.

Vivian loves working in a role where she can make the Canberra landscape beautiful, safe, and liveable for the community. She loves the fast-paced environment and being able to achieve high customer satisfaction.

Vivian was born in Shanghai and has been living and working in Canberra since 2010, she became an Australian citizen in 2017. Aside from work, Vivian loves outdoor activities like jogging or cycling. She also loves reading, cooking, classical music, having coffee with friends and facetiming family overseas.

With her civil engineering degree, Vivian applied for TCCS thinking she would work on stormwater maintenance based on her previous role in sewerage maintenance planning but loves what she is doing now. She enjoys using her unique skills and being able to help her local community.

Thanks to our engineers like Vivian, our Canberra landscape is kept safe and looking beautiful. Thanks Vivian and great work!
