Following the Canterbury Earthquakes r+m were engaged by Christchurch Gondola Limited to provide landscape and visual assessment expertise to enable this iconic Christchurch tourist attraction to operate again.
As a result of the earthquakes a range of rockfall protection works were required to future proof the operation of this tourist facility against any ongoing seismic activity.
The r+m landscape and visual assessment considered the effects the proposed protection works on existing landscape values, including natural character, as well as existing visual amenity values and whether and to what degree these would change when the proposed structures were introduced.
The Port Hills landform is comprised of rugged terrain, with steep but shallow gullies, open spurs ridges, prominent volcanic rock outcrops and volcanic dykes.
