DEVELOPMENT AND DEMONSTRATION OF AN ANTI-BIRD STRIKE TUBULAR SCREEN FOR HIGH SPEED RAIL LINES
Its main objectives are:
- Develop the proposed methodology for the determination of optimal measures of protection of the avifauna in new High Speed Lines.
- Demonstrate the effectiveness of a new anti-collision screen design for birds. This design is based on the concept of exempt tube screen (ETS).
- Increase knowledge about the interaction between railway infrastructure and avifauna, with the aim of introducing design improvements that guarantee biodiversity.
- Reduce the impact of existing and future High Speed Lines, both in the project area and on bird populations established in protected areas.
