Ever heard of Ecodotti? In collaboration with Suma Aqualife Park, the West Japan Railway Company in Kobe presents (and implements) a fantastic plan for the safety of turtles during their crossing.
It is not uncommon to see "accidents" that see small reptiles crushed under the rails: damage to ecology and transport, with dead specimens and delayed trains.
Today the tracks have been redesigned to include real crossing channels positioned under the traverses, which allow the passage of turtles in complete safety and also protect the trains.
For some time there has been talk of eco-pipelines or wildlife crossing. Structures that are not unnecessarily futuristic but certainly innovative, which belong to a new intelligent way of designing our transport and respecting nature.
It will be a matter of Toyotism, but Japan has once again shown that technology and the environment can coexist without compromise.
