Estuary roads and waterway crossing management

Estuary Roads and Waterway Crossing ManagementRoads located near estuaries, including those that cross estuarine waterways, are sites where impacts have been concentrated. This can be due to the road constricting and concentrating flows causing adjacent vegetation to be pushed over, or when flood damage to the infrastructure including gravel lift and shift smothers adjacent riparian and wetland habitats.
