The duplication of the Houghton Highway (Hornibrook Bridge) by the Department of Transport and Main Roads (DTMR) resulted in the disturbance of some patches of saltmarsh. A site was identified on Bremner Road, Rothwell that needed rehabilitation, and saltmarsh plants were transplanted here from the DTMR site. A variety of techniques for transplanting saltmarsh species were trialled, to add to this knowledge base.
