Title of the project

Game reflectors highway A2

Description

The national road authority placed game reflectors on a transect of highway (A2) to keep wild animals away from the road.

Results

The wild mirrors along the A2 between Urmond and Echt are a great success. The reflectors must ensure that wild animals no longer cross the road and are hit. This has not happened since the start of the test last summer.Rijkswaterstaat will officially evaluate the test with the game mirrors in May, but has already indicated that the project has been successful. So the mirrors remain.
