There are many components to a major roads project that have to be considered to ensure success.
As part of the Perth to Breadalbane Duplication, the Department of State Growth has been working to protect the vulnerable green and gold frog.
To reduce the impact as frogs move between different habitats, State Growth designed and built frog-friendly drains that provide the frogs with a safe passage under the road, and habitat ponds, known as ‘stepping stones’.
The ‘stepping-stones’ allow frogs to move safely between habitats.
Success will be measured through a survey of the area when the frogs become active again between November and January.
