"What's this? Transmission Gully getting the nod! If it wasn't for the coastal highway we wouldn't break even..." 10 March, 2006.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000963

The scene shows a ghoulish-looking undertaker, full of warts and whiskers, and dressed in traditional old-fashioned undertaker garb. Behind him is a huge pot of lilies and beside him is an empty, open coffin. He is reading in the newspaper that Transmission Gully is being given the go ahead over the coastal route. The coastal route, with its high number of traffic accidents, has been keeping the undertaker in business. There has been a controversy lasting several years over which alternative should prevail.
