The local council is investigating the planned use of 10-tonne Unimogs to carry tourists on a Queenstown road described as one of the world's most treacherous drives.
Go Orange plans to transport up to 20 people in each of the Mercedes Benz trucks along Skippers Rd, through the Skippers Canyon, to go whitewater rafting on the Shotover River.
Some worry the 22-kilometre historic road is too narrow for the Unimogs and that they are not suitable to be used on the bridge at Deep Creek. But Go Orange says the Unimogs were selected to replace old buses because of their "capabilities, suitability and safety".
