Comment on Trees on Melanka block no longer sacred? by Richard Bentley.

We should all care about trees Harold.
They are very important in adsorbing CO2 and releasing O2. They provide shade. And they can be aestheticly pleasing or were once when it comes to Malanka.
Promotions of early development plans spelled out the promise to build around the trees. As time drags by if current practices continue there may be no trees left to build around.
Hopefully the owners of the site will now take their responsibilities seriously and take steps to better manage parking by establishing a protection zone around the remaining trees and encourage growth of new trees in place of those that have died.

A bridge too far? A tunnel may be the answer.
There are seven tunnels in the world over 28km long and up to 57km.
So this is clearly possible.
I liked the idea of raising the rail over the road but with a tunnel you could still take the rail higher and bridge it over Bradshaw and other roads south of the gap. Returning the gap to its natural state is well worth considering.
