The only potential adverse effect that could involve the overland mobilization is the tracks left on the tundra. It will be mitigated by a proper route selection and the use of low ground pressure equipment. The areas where the snow cover is inappropriate will be avoided. The trail maintenance will prevent routing in the snow and will offer a better protection for the tundra.
The transportation will take place in the winter, so there should have no effect on birds or most wildlife. The presence of wildlife will be monitored and activities adjusted to avoid unnecessary disturbance.
No significant adverse residual effects are expected to occur.
