Fish passage and natural flows returned at Slippery crossing, on Oxley River in September 2009 as a part of the Bring Back the Fish project. The alteration restored fish passage to 16 km of freshwater habitat in the Oxley River. The 22 celled box culvert was altered with the alteration of 4 cells to low flow box culverts over 3 weeks.
