Nainital: 70 Meters Long Eco Bridge Designed To Save Reptiles From A Road Accident
Eco Bridge has been built in Kaladhungi Range to protect the reptile class from road accidents. The creatures crawling through this wooden bridge built above the road will be able to move easily.
Kaladhungi Range Forest Officer Amit Kumar Gwaskoti said that a 70 meter long Eco Bridge bridge has been constructed at a cost of two lakhs. Rope, bamboo, and grass have been used in bridge construction.
From Eco Bridge, reptile species will be able to easily cross the road passing through the forests. This bridge has been constructed in the red soil area of Kaladhungi-Nainital Road. The forest department has prepared this bridge in about ten days.
Reptile species live more in mixed forests
Kaladhungi bridge construction area has more area of mixed forests. Also, the Baur River also flows in this area. Being a mixed forest, they prefer to live in reptile species.
Reptile species live in trees, pit, and water. The geographical conditions of Kaladhungi are favorable for these animals. The road passes between mixed forests (dense forest).
Due to this, most of the animals are victims of accidents. In view of this, the eco bridge has been prepared by the Forest Department.
These are species of reptile species
Lizard, turtle, crocodile, snake, crocodile, chameleon, etc.
