It appears to be a grate to prevent animals from entering the express road.

No, as Chris said, that's to prevent animals (cows, sheep etc.) from entering the expressway (they can't walk on that surface). You can see a lot of that on local mountain roads.

Only frogs (or rabbits) because it has ~1 m height.

The idea is that animals like cows or deer cannot cross this grate, so they will be kept away from the express road.

We have it too in the Netherlands:

1. some of main roads are not signed priority road due to their terrible quality or because they are narrow (less than 7,00 m)

(eg. some sections of road 31, 311, 75 that i know)


2. some of access roads signed priority road (like on the photo, road 7451)

or in Csongrád county between Hódmezővásárhely and Makó, road 4414):

We only put those signs at intersections (and not often).

No, we only put them before intersections, so you know your road has priority over other roads. But usually you have to watch, if other roads have the yield signs, otherwise priority has the one coming from the right.
