Case Studies

Badger Netting

Fen Contracts provide much more than Vegetation Management.

We supplied and installed around 1200m2 of Maccaferri Mac netting along the Shenfield to Southend Victoria railway line at Park Lane, Ramsden Bell House. This is an extremely busy commuter line between Wickford and Billericay Station.

Work was carried out in conjunction with VolkerFitzpatrick as part of the package of Earth Works they were awarded in the Anglian Region, Control Period 5 by Network Rail.

Badgers has been undermining the railway embankment along a section of live track. The netting was installed to exclude badgers from live sets until artificial setts could be created.

Mac Mat which was installed around the active badger setts. The Mac Mat was cut so the badgers still could access and egress the setts until such time as new artificial badger setts could be constructed by Whitcher Wildlife. The Mac Mat was laid on the bank then the artificial sett was built on top of it to stop the Badgers from digging back into the setts that they were being excluded from. Once the new setts were built one way exclusion doors were fitted to the existing badger setts which were monitored for activity.

This project was successful in keeping wildlife safe in their natural habitat while ensuring the safety of the public.

Keeping everyone happy is just part of what we do here at Fen Contracts Ltd.

If you need to arrange any form of wildlife control give us a call.
