New geodetic station planned in Ny Ålesund

The Norwegian mapping authority wants to establish a new geodetic station at Brandalspynten near Ny Ålesund. Both the Norwegian Polar Institute and NERC (Natural Environment Research Council, Großbritannien) are against the plan in its current shape. They agree that existing infrastructure should be used for the purpose, rathern than building new bridges and roads. NERC fears that other projects might follow in case authorities open for establishing new buildings and infrastructure outside Ny Ålesund. Until now, the area around Brandalspynten is untouched wilderness.
