Crailoo Ecoduct (Natuurbrug Crailoo)

Location: Hilversum, Noord Holland, The Netherlands, www.natuurbrug.nl

Objective: Increase ecological connectivity in the fragmented nature reserve (‘Goois Natuurreservaat’) by establishing an overpass for many different animal species.

Problems: the required road diversion, a potential obstacle, was facilitated by the provision of land free of charge by the Dutch Railways Real Estate

Solutions: intensive communication between the different stakeholders enhanced the process which resulted in good progress

Results: the bridge is 800 meters long and 50 meters wide and thus the longest overpass for fauna in the world. Different animal migration requirements, including pools and shrubs have been incorporated in the design

Critical factors of success: the involvement of many stakeholders was particularly essential before the start of the process. The overpass had to bridge a road, some railroads, an industrial area and a sport park

Key learning points: due to the intensive and constructive contribution of the partners no serious problems arose. The stakeholder involvement was very successful and contributed to social support and the progress went off smoothly

Actors: Dutch Railways Real Estate, the Provincial Authorities and Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality were among the partners.
