The location chosen by the Swedish organisers, close to one of the biggest infrastructure projects in Sweden under construction in a natural protected landscape, provided inspiration for the workshops of the meeting. Problems raised from the concern to integrate harmoniously roads and bridges in the natural landscape and to mitigate their negative effects on fauna was actively debated by all the participants. The bridge Höga Kusten and the construction of a segment of the E4 highway served as an example that motivated the importance of the activities developed by the Infra Eco Network Europe.
