The roadsides are reduced a lot to give nature more space: “It will take some time to get used to” | Quality

It is no longer clear that Schieland Water Board and Krimpenerwaard are cutting edges. In the future, the Water Authority says it will come with a mower only if needed. “It will take some getting used to.”

The Water Authority, which also maintains roads and roads in Krimpenerwaard, says it wants to take into account nature and the insects and birds that live in and around roadsides. According to the shelf, “When the edges of the road are clipped, we will start business as usual from a road safety standpoint, but we also want to make more space for nature.” So mowing is done only when it is necessary and significantly reduced when not.

The mowing work will take place from early September to mid-October. Business traffic can get on the edge of a cliff, but it can cause delays locally.

Mowing differently gives bees, insects, and other animals more chances to survive the winter. The Water Board expects that about ten percent will remain. “Undoubtedly it will take some getting used to if everything is not clipped neatly. What we see as very important is that it is safe on the roads,” said Sheeland and de Krempinoirard.

There are also more and more municipalities in Groene Hart that are mowing environmental. The municipal mowing policy regularly leads to a discussion with residents. In Woerden there is cooperation with local nature associations to cut the environment as short as possible. Roadside vegetation remains longer, resulting in a longer nectar season for insects. “But downsizing the shear requires more communication,” said a Woerden municipality spokesperson in AD Groene Hart.
