ANET is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to promote best-practice in road ecology and the design of environmentally-sensitive linear infrastructure. We provide a centralised location for the latest evidence on the design, construction and evaluation of environmentally sensitive roads and linear infrastructure.
We aim to improve the flow of high-quality information among stakeholders, including planners, engineers, regulators, researchers and community groups.
Environmentally sensitive roads will reduce the number of wildlife-vehicle collisions, resulting in increased motorist safety and reduced costs for insurance claims and vehicle repair.
Linear infrastructure that is environmentally sensitive will better conserve biodiversity by minimising negative environmental impacts such as road kill and habitat fragmentation.
Saving money by ensuring the most efficient and effective methods are considered and implemented early in the planning process, and ensuring unsuccessful measures are not repeated, environmentally-sensitive roads will be cost-effective.
