Road Closures and Delays

Current Roadworks Roundup

Motorists are advised that they may experience some delays (up to 15 minutes) due to roadworks around the State.

Please note that works may be subject to change at short notice due to weather.

Reduced speed limits and other traffic management are important for protecting road workers, and also to reduce the risks to the travelling public, including the risk of damage to vehicles.

Midland Highway Safety Upgrades

When travelling between Hobart and Launceston along the Midland Highway you will be travelling through several road work sites.

Please allow an extra 30 minutes for your journey if travelling the full length of the Highway.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and comply with the posted speed limits in all roadwork sites. Speed limits may be reduced when there are changes to the road surface, new or no line marking, changes to centre separation, new or no barriers, or road workers and equipment on the road or at the side of the road. The need to reduce the speed may not be obvious, but reduced speed limits are for your safety and the safety of road workers.
