    Why wouldn’t you upgrade the backroad that runs from Wingatui to the top of Three Mile Hill?

    The Friends Hill Road? That would be a major upgrade for drainage and surfacing. Plus it’s a steep steep bike climb – not many could do that easily.

    Last time I went up there on the unsurfaced road, I had to get off and push because my MTB tyres got so clogged with clay mud it was unrideable.

    The tunnel is the way to go. Delta should run ducting through it for fibre and lighting and go along the railway line to Mosgiel.
