ProRail is allowed to expel the badgers under the track at Esch. Last night, the rail manager received an exemption from the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). Because badgers are a protected species, they cannot simply be expelled.
“We can let the badgers leave the track with measures,” says ProRail. The work may only take place during the day, because badgers are nocturnal animals. Due to the badger sett under the railway, no trains have been running between Den Bosch and Boxtel since Tuesday.
ProRail already started preparations yesterday. The railway embankment has been mowed to make the site less attractive to badgers and check valves have been installed at the ends of the corridors of the badger sett. This gives the badger the opportunity to safely leave the burrow overnight, but the non-return valves prevent it from returning to it. This morning the excavation of the badger sett begins.
