Costs & Benefits

Constructing fauna crossings to assist in wildlife migration over and under major roads appear to outweigh the costs of construction and maintenance.DP Flat Rope

Studies have been done which details an extra 7-8% increase in the total cost of the project to add fauna crossings.  The extra costs to build and maintain fauna crossings in ecologically important areas are small compared to the benefits associated with protecting wildlife populations, reducing property damage to vehicles, saving human life and reducing the number of collisions with our wildlife.
