Down on the Continent, there are many animal crossings at present. The Netherlands and Switzerland have been very forward looking, but in Germany, France, Hungary, Austria and Spain also the number of crossings for animals is on the increase.
In Sweden there are several animal crossings of small size, but thus far no ecoducts. There are however game-friendly bridges in Uddevalla over the E6, and at Burlöv in Skåne over the E6/E20.
– And on the ring road outside Malmö that leads to Copenhagen, a large and wide animal and recreational route has been built underneath the infrastructure, continues Lennart Folkeson.
