Given a set of n points TeX in the plane and a real value t>1 we show how to construct in time TeX a t-spanner TeX of TeX such that there exists a set of vertices TeX of size TeX whose removal leaves two disconnected sets TeX and TeX where neither is of size greater than 2/3 · n. The spanner also has some additional properties; low weight and constant degree.
