corduroy

where country is really wet you build a corduroy which consists of pieces of small logs or sandpalm placed side by side on the track (road) - this makes the part of track accessible by vehicle - I have seen extensive sections of road corduroyed and have also helped construct them. Not so common now but there is evidence of many old one in the top end: You will be able to come out and visit because we have make a corduroy across dingo flat. So you are wondering what all that wood is on that old road well that is what we call a corduroy and we put it in many years ago to cross the floodplain.
