tantamount to environmental vandalism that project. i think it's disgusting they never even considered putting the road semi-underground, like that landslide that goes over the Arthur's Pass Rd on the Otira side. They're going to turn a huge and spectacular rock bluff, home to rare geckos and numerous endangered species of plants, into a might big bunch of steps. it's going to look a fucking eyesore for decades, and once lost from there those species will be screwed for coming back. moving "as many as they can find" of the geckos elsewhere is NOT going to cut the mustard. Fucking "engineering-solution" phillistine dickheads. VANDALS!

Remember the rare snails they moved from a Solid Energy site on the West Coast - R.I.P. little fellas :( . Re-locations are generally not very successful :rolleyes:

They should just do some general remediation work and turn it into an extension to the Cycle Trail Network :thumbsup: ( along with the whole Summit Rd ).
