L. Southern Creek Crossing 2

This crossing is the current vehicle access to the paddocks east and south east of the creek. We have been using this crossing as the creek bed is relatively hard here and the banks allow a vehicle to get down and up. This area is usually wet and driving through here is quite sloppy, the tyres gouge tracks and cause erosion. The plan is to stop using this crossing entirely and to build some structures which will collect sediment and allow it to silt up. As sediment collects and vegetation grows, further structures will be built on top of the old ones. Slowly, over time this will raise the level of the creek bed and eventually allow the water to reach the flood plain and the valley floor.
