Holdfast Crossing Demolition

by | Jul 3, 2024 | Community, Environment | 0 comments

A concrete crossing blocking native fish from swimming freely in the MacIntyre River is scheduled to be removed by spring.

Holdfast Crossing is located on a private farm about 14 kilometres north of Yetman, with the Inverell Times reporting that State government workers are hoping to complete the demolition of the crossing by the end of August.

According to NSW Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water, director – infrastructure projects, Andrew Lavelle, that would reinstate more than 64 kilometres of fish passage along the MacIntyre River in the northern Murray-Darling Basin.

Mr Lavelle says the project sought to improve connectivity across the Northern Basin by reinstating the movement and abundance of migratory native fish species, while at the same time balancing the needs of local water users.
