Bass Highway – Wynyard Junctions Safety Improvements

The Tasmanian and Australian Governments have committed funding for safety improvements to be made at a number of junctions on the Bass Highway, Wynyard.


This project is located on the Bass Highway, Wynyard, along a section of road commonly known as the Wynyard bypass.

Why is the Department of State Growth doing work on this road?

The Department has worked closely with the Waratah-Wynyard Council to address community concerns regarding safety at the intersections within this section of highway.

This project will improve safety at the following intersections:

  • Calder Road and York Street.
  • Deep Creek Road.
  • Inglis Street.
  • Oldina Road and Wilkinson Street.
  • Reservoir Drive.

*This segment of the project is funded by the Australian Government’s Black Spot Programme.  

Design plans


Works are expected to start early 2018 and will be completed over two construction seasons, with the Reservoir Drive intersection to be completed before June 2018.
