The planners behind the recently opened section of Road 6 did their best to reduce the highway’s impact on the environment but admit that ‘irreversible damage’ was done
The planning concept included a comprehensive approach to landscape, out of a desire to minimize damage to plant and animal life. To reduce the amount of digging and filling in, 14 bridges with a combined length of 2.5 kilometers were erected, and three tunnels for the passage of animals were dug.
