STABILIZATION OF SLOPES BY VEGETATION ALONG MOTORWAYS AND FEDERAL HIGHWAYS

GRUENVERBAU AN AUTOBAHNEN UND BUNDESSTRASSEN

Road construction causes significant disturbance of the harmonious balance of the ecology of the surrounding landscape. Replanting along the route of road projects must be regarded in its total significance as landscape protection and restoration after interference with the ecology, as a natural construction material, as a means of traffic management and an artistic component in road design. From these requirements there arises the necessity of a thorough knowledge of the biological and ecological relationships in the landscape and their prompt and rapid reinstatement after any disturbance. Special attention must be devoted to the natural multiplicity of the indigenous plant species which must be restored as far as possible by replanting. In this regard the correct timing of the replanting operation is of paramount importance. (TRRL)
