Road ecology blog: Hole in wildlife fence in median near underpass, SP-225 near Brotas, São Paulo, Brazil.

This is in the median of the highway. The fence connects two separate box culverts; one for each travel direction. The purpose of the fence is to keep wildlife from entering the median strip of the highway. However, in this particular situation there is a large hole in the fence that jeopardizes the effectiveness of the mitigation measures in reducing wildlife-vehicle collisions and guiding wildlife to and through the wildlife crossing structures. Proper maintenance of wildlife fencing is essential to the success of the mitigation measures. Including fence maintenance in regular operation and maintenance programs appears to be the way forward.
