Overcoming a Water Problem
Water from a small creek had worked a way below the surface to seep out onto the Old Hobartian Track. A drain had been added to divert the water but the track often remained muddy. The plan was to add rock to provide better passage for walkers.
The channel to drain water away was widened and deepened. The area of track downhill was hardened with rock, including designing some to act as steps. This should ensure the previously wet and muddy part of the track remains dry for walkers. Parts had got wider from people trying to avoid the mud and we rehabilitated these.
The site is approximately 600 metres from the end of Lenah Valley Road and it was a joint effort with the City of Hobart staff.
