Background information and definitions
Bridges and culverts can provide roosting opportunities for bats. Suitable roosting spaces, such as crevices, can be incorporated into the design of new bridges and culverts or can be added to existing structures (e.g. see Keeley & Tuttle 1999). For a similar intervention see ‘Maintain bat roosts in road bridges and culverts’.
