Bahubali Cattle Fences Along National Highways Soon To Prevent Accidents Caused By Animals
New Delhi, July 6 (TNA) The Government of India is planning to implement the ‘Bahu Balli Cattle Fence’ along highways in India to prevent cattle from crossing the road and causing dangerous accidents that result in the loss of human life, union surface transport minister Nitin Gadkari informed in a tweet.
The fence will be 1.20 meters high and will be installed on section 23 of NH-30 as a comprehensive solution. This installation will serve as a demonstration before prime minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Chhattisgarh.
The cattle fence, constructed using bamboo, offers a fully effective and environmentally friendly solution. The bamboo is treated with creosote oil and coated with HDPE, making it a stronger alternative to steel.
The fence has a fire rating of Class 1, ensuring safety, and aligns with the principles of Aatmanirbhar Bharat, which aims to make all highways sustainable and minimize harm to wildlife and cattle, the minister further added.
