More than 150 toads, frogs and newts have been saved after a road was shut near the creatures' mating ground.
The toads make the journey each year
Council officials decided to close part of Charlcombe Lane, Bath, in February because it was the largest toad crossing area in the district.
Hundreds of toads make their way annually from the surrounding hills to the north of Bath to the lakes in the valley below where they breed.
The arduous journey is made from dusk to dawn with many creatures being killed or injured as they cross the road, prompting officials to close the road at night.
Jane Briggs, from Bath and North East Somerset Council, said: "The closure of Charlcombe Lane was initiated by local residents and The Wildlife Trust and everyone involved in the project is delighted with how successful it as been.
"We have already saved more than 150 amphibians and the road will be closed for well
over another month so it is anticipated that we will be able to save many more."
The road is due to reopen on 20 April.
