Christmas Island rangers have taken road safety to a whole new level with the construction of a “crab bridge” over the island’s busiest road.
In preparation for the annual spawning season, rangers have been setting up barriers along the roadside to prevent the crabs from being crushed under the wheels of cars.
A five-metre-high bridge has also been constructed at one point along the road to help the crabs move across the island and continue their migration.
