Japanese railroad companies have recently begun installing a cute way to allow turtles to safely cross train tracks without being harm, by building a mall tunnel or underpass below the tracks.

Turtles are often crushed by trains when the try to cross after getting stuck between the tracks, rails or track switches which then has a knock on effect on train delays. This invention created by Suma Aqualife Park in Kobe and the West Japan Railway Company solves the problem for everyone.

Japanese railroad companies have installed small tunnels to help turtles cross train tracks safely.
