The island of Ireland is crisscrossed by a range of transport corridors ranging from boreens to motorways, trams and railways lines. The range of landscape types through which our transport corridors travel demonstrates the enormous potential for positive and sustainable interactions with these local landscapes – from small scale planting to wider habitat enhancements – all the while addressing transport safety concerns and maintaining performance standards.
Working with partners, Transport Infrastructure Ireland, Iarnród Éireann, Translink and the Department of Infrastructure Northern Ireland, the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan has published guidelines on how transport corridors can be managed in a pollinator-friendly way. These new guidelines detail 21 different actions transport managers can take to help pollinators.
