The work done by members of REPA and THECA (The Hut Environmental and Community Association Inc.) during 2009 – 2012 on the implications of the Gap Creek Road upgrade on wildlife has been published in the “Australasian Journal of Environmental Management” (published online 15 Aug 2014, authors, D.N. Jones, M.R. Griffiths, J.R. Griffiths, J.L.F. Hacker & J.B. Hacker ). The key findings of the work were that the increase in traffic increased the amount of roadkill; that lower traffic speeds result in lower rates of roadkill, and, in order to keep traffic speed at an acceptable level, traffic calming devices such as speed bumps and chicanes are required.
