Japanese Railways Implement Special Tunnels for Slow-Moving Turtles to Safely Cross

Posted by in category: transportation

In coordination with Suma Aqualife Park, the West Japan Railway Company in Kobe came up with a wonderful plan to keep turtles safe from the tracks while the trains pass through them. Slow-moving turtles are now safe and do not fall under the risk of being crushed under the wheels of trains. Due to turtles coming under trains, both lives are lost as well as delays are caused as the rail-switching mechanisms get spoilt. Now, due to the tiny channels located underneath the tracks, this problem is avoided and also, the turtle’s lives are saved.
