MAINTENANCE

Providing better options and effectively blocking obsolete
tracks will redirect even the die-hard traditional user!
Rehabilitation - giving Mother Nature a hand
 
Stop traffic by
providing a better walking option
installing signs, saying 'track closed' and giving reasons
blocking access and disguising the obsolete track with dead vegetation that may be available
 
Minimise erosion by intercepting and spreading the flow of water
 
Encourage revegetation by
covering with dead branches to collect leaf-fall and seed
replanting or sowing with seed of local provenance
 
Monitor the site for weed invasion and re-opening of track; take appropriate action
 
  ... and hope the rabbits stay away
