Environmental aspects were a top priority for construction work. As early as the planning stages, concerns relating to nature and landscape in the Wuhle Valley were taken into account and had a considerable influence on what was done. An ecological construction overseer ensured that all of the plants and animals living on-site were protected.
One especially good example of this occurred while the first guide line was laid in preparation for pulling the cable at the end of February. In consideration of the natural impact, the decision was made not to use any machine assistance, such as helicopters, and have the foreman pull the cable through the Wuhle himself with the least possible impact.
