We often hear about the struggles women in the construction industry are forced to overcome but we seldom hear much good.
One area of the industry where positive changes are being seen is on road construction sites where female traffic controllers are becoming common sight.
Female traffic controllers around Australia have increased and one of the reasons could be that women elicit less road rage from motor vehicle drivers than their male counterparts, this is the opinion of female traffic controller Rebecca Longo.
She believes its the calmer demeaner and smile on female traffic controllers that is able to diffuse tense situations with frustrated road users.
More and more women are being attracted to jobs in the construction industry due to opportunities and lucrative pay.
