German term or phrase: Überflugschutz
No context I'm afraid apart from this is on a Spannbeton-Freivorbau, i.e. prestressed concrete cantilever bridge.

English translation:bird flight protection measures?
Explanation:
I assume that this refers to birds, unless the bridge is very tall in which case it might mean planes? You could just say flight protection measures I suppose.
Low bridge rails can put some bird species at risk of flying into traffic. Construction of new towers creates a potentially significant impact on migratory birds, especially night-migrating birds.

Thanks. It is indeed some kind of wall to stop birds flying into cars. I shortened it "bird-deterrent measures".
