Birds die in droves to high-voltage power line in Diepenbeek
Diepenbeek is A high-voltage power line of almost 5 kilometers between the albert canal and the Boudewijnlaan in Diepenbeek annual costs of the life to hundreds of birds. This is evident from a research that Natuurpunt this year, ran in command of Elijah, the administrator of the transmission grid.

Our country is crisscrossed by a dense network of high voltage overhead power lines: in total, about 5.614 km. One of the most dangerous pieces for the birds is located in Diepenbeek. It is a process of 4.785 feet between the albert canal and the Boudewijnlaan, which is very dangerous for ordinary and waterfowl that daily commute along the albert canal.


Especially gulls cross the ‘black line’ of Diepenbeek in shimmer-dark, when they of the bed on the sluice on the albert canal in belgium to the feeding grounds in the vicinity fly", tell them to Natuurpunt. “in the Morning, return in the evening, still in bad lighting conditions, sometimes in the fog. The chance of a "collision" with the high-voltage power line is very high.”
