Overpasses for arboreal mammals include rope bridges, portals, and stand alone poles that allow animals to walk, climb, soar or "fly" across roads. These structures are intended for species that spend much of their live up in the trees such as martens, dormouse, squirrels and some marsupial species. Note that vines and other vegetation is typically allowed to grow up along the poles, and that the ropes or planks may be connected to the surrounding vegetation, preferably to the trees (i.e. connected to the branches or canopy). This allows for easy access to the crossing structure for the animals.
