– When new roads and railways are constructed, what must first and foremost be borne in mind is that they must be located in areas where nature is not sensitive, says Lennart Folkeson. – If it is nevertheless necessary to locate the road or railway in such nature, the infrastructure must be adapted to the surroundings. Make sure you do not cut off known animal trails, but build the road/railway low down in the landscape so that noise from traffic does not spread very far.
Make use of the vegetation. Embed the infrastructure in the landscape. If these measures are impracticable – or do not yield the desired results – then it may be necessary to provide animal crossings.
