Fauna Crossing Net Bridge
A custom designed crossing net and rope bridge designed and constructed by Netting.com.au. The Netting.com.au team was contracted to erect this large rope bridge crossing for native wildlife to safely cross.
The native animals move by gliding from tree to tree, so where there are large gaps in tree cover, such as roads, they are unable to cross.
The rope bridge can be erected wherever there are large gaps in the trees such as driveways, roads and freeways. Possums, gliders and other native animals traverse the aerial ropeway, using the top of the crossing like a ladder.
Interest in purpose built structures to enable animals to cross roads more easily is increasing in Australia and internationally. Sadly, survival rates of animals near freeways are about one-third less than those of animals living further away. Rope and net bridges have proven a very effective measure in protecting the wildlife.
