Taniwha, railroads, and consultation

Dr Kepa Morgan, a senior lecturer in civil and environmental engineering at Auckland University, has written an excellent piece for the Herald that highlights the value, when embarking on a major construction project, of understanding and addressing concerns that arise out of a body of indigenous knowledge.

Well worth a read, especially if you have been frustrated by the more sensational coverage of this issue that we have seen in the media over the last week or so.
