Excellent stuff...the Cycle of Life is sacred stuff, Lisl.

[I am imagining the toads sprout wings, and fly clumsily across the road to the sunny side]
Lisl: Nice thought of yours, and the Council's, Ray
I hope the toads appreciate it...
Lisl: At least they don't have to crawl over their squashed comrades, Larry!

Avec ces panneaux, tu ne peux pas ne pas comprendre qu'il ne faut pas passer.
Lisl: You are so right there, Martine - we love our toads

Tous les chemins mènent à  Rome !
Lisl: Easy to find another route. No one minds if we save the toads
That's really fantastic!
Lisl: On the years before they closed the road, people would come with their buckets to pick up the toads and take them safely across
Wonderful. Near where I live, a road was redesigned and build to accommodate frogs.
Lisl: That's very good, Michael

Excellent
JP
Lisl: Merci bien
That's better than wonderful, Lisl. YAY for the toads!
Lisl: The carnage could be mad otherwise, Ginnie. People couldn't be there 24 hours with buckets

A civilised idea Lisl
Lisl: One of the better things our Council has agreed to

It always reminds me that I have to take a course of speed-reading before I come to the UK...
Great signs and did you bring a bucket to rescue the Toads???
(We do in the Netherlands, people help them to cross the street)

Lisl: No - but some of my friends used to
ET bien voilà  c'est clair !! difficile de ne pas comprendre ..
Bonne journée
Lisl: NO ONE would drive past here. Bonne journée

I've never heard of read closures for this before. I know of groups that will do "toad crossing patrols" but not road closures before. I hope no toads cross before 13 February.
Lisl: This is a country road with another access, Alan, so doesn't cause too much grief
Nice to see the council has got a heart
Lisl: It cares more for toads than its citizens, Bill
I hope you can walk on the road. Toad migration would be interesting to photograph.
Lisl: Yes - you can, Mary. I found a squashed toad on another road when out walking today

Good thing, now the storks can have a feast ... No, just good thing - full stop.

I always wonder in cases like this, what you do when your girlfriend lives just down the road in toad territory. Walk the distance?
Lisl: No problem at all, Louis, you can walk down the road, or drive in from another end
is this an annual closure Lisl?
Lisl: It is, Brian - every year
Lucky toads eh Lisl.
Lisl: Good for them that we love 'em
clair et net!!! route fermée!! amitiés
Lisl: Good to save les crapauds

I agree with you- we have also such road closure because of 'Krötenwanderung'.
Lisl: A new word for me, Philine, but I looked it up!
they made their point Lisl... it looks like the Bath Northeast Counsel protected the toads... that white sing looks like it's 40 years old with all of the rust on it....petersmile
Lisl: Can't be to old, peter, as not all that long ago the toads were ferried across the road by well-meaning naturlists

Great capture, lucky toads!
Lisl: And lucky us to have a toad crossing. I noticed the frogs have come to my pomd today to spawn

Wonderful! Will we get to see some toads crossing the road?
Lisl: Sorry, Beth - it's a bit hit and miss - seeing them, I mean

It looks like the roads in Shropshire at the moment!
Lisl: That's a good sign, Cherie
