Fauna Movement Solutions

B4C works with groups, organisations and government to help achieve positive environmental outcomes for wildlife survival via overpasses/underpasses and other fauna movement solutions.

Logan Enhancement Project

This project is located within the Queensland Government’s designated ecological and conservation corridor (or green belt) linking the Karawatha Forest to the Flinders Range. In November 2016, the Queensland Government approved the plan by the Environmental Reference Group (ERG) to provide fauna movement solutions for this major environmental corridor as part of Transurban’s Logan Enhancement Project.
