Part Of Output 3.2 Planning Toolkit

These guidelines are one of the main outputs of the TRANSGREEN project. They are generally aimed at minimizing negative impacts of transport infrastructure development on wildlife in the Carpathian mountain range system and are recommended to be used in combination with other TRANSGREEN outputs, such as this website. The Guidelines can be used at all levels of sustainable linear transport infrastructure development – from the initial planning and design through the construction to the operation and maintenance.
