Our eco bridge in its own way can mirror some of the effects of the great eco-bridges across the world. One of the best examples might be the 62km long bridge in Singapore which connects two huge nature reserves which were once connected, until being separated by a highway 30 years ago.
Animals like the palm civet and pangolin quickly adapted to using the Eco Bridge instead of crossing the dangerous highway, and have thrived as a result of it.
Closer to home, our little bridge was built in the 1800s to cross the then-new Sevenoaks to London rail route. It has since fallen into disuse and has vegetated over to provide an effective ‘eco-bridge’ between the arable land we will be reverting to grassland and a small area of grassland on the opposite side.
