The £190,000 dormouse bridge straddling the new Church Village bypass near Llantrisant, South Wales

A cash-strapped council has been criticised for spending £190,000 on a bridge - to allow dormice to cross the road safely.
Bosses at Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council in South Wales decided to erect three wire walkways above a new bypass to protect the rodent population.

Why didn't they put a tunnel under it like they do for hedgehogs :?
