The project objectives are to ensure full compliance with the law, proper understanding of the opportunities for enhancing bat habitat, and to provide bat roost and safe flighways in the highway estate; and to attain UKBAP and HABAP Targets and Actions. Research will be carried out at desk study level as well as new project work to establish how bats are affected by roads, both in new design and operation. A framework will be created for long term monitoring. The principal partner in this research will be the Bat Conservation Trust (BCT) who are the HA's partner in delivery of advice in relation to bats.
