Stream crossing

Natural watercourses that cross the road alignment. On sealed roads the crossing would generally be a bridge, floodway or culvert. On unsealed roads there may be no structure.

Water levels at floodways and stream crossings are likely to change rapidly and may present an extreme hazard. The ability to cross these floodways and streams will depend on depth of water, velocity of flow, driver experience and vehicle type. ALWAYS assess conditions prior to crossing or travelling along the affected section. See also “Water over Road”.
