I posted that under the Molesworth page a few days ago when it was first suggested. I think it would be a great loss to us, but if they can’t/won’t fix SH1 then I don’t see a lot of other (easy-ish) options unless a new ferry terminal is built further south that bypasses that area completely for the major traffic, or the proposed Wanganui to Motueka Ferry gets off the ground.
I think Molesworth would be easier to do than the Rainbow, but either option would require a lot of effort to keep open over winter. Building a whole new road in there somewhere would take a mammoth amount of effort however.
