The Remibar project (Remediation of migratory barriers in Nordic/fennoscandian watercourses) aims to improve the continuity of watercourses in Sweden. The project was funded by EU Commissions LIFE+ programme. Watercourses are ecological corridors in the landscape and are regularly crossed by roads and railways, sometimes causing ecological problems particularly where culverts and bridges are not constructed to an appropriate standard. Poorly installed culverts can pose obstacles and make it hard and sometimes impossible for fish and other species to migrate. The ReMiBar project offers several ideas to overcome such migration barriers and its knowledge is therefore very important when working with improving and constructing new rural roads, especially when dealing with water and drainage.
