Department of State GrowthTransport

East Tamar Highway North of Fourteen Mile Creek

The Department of State Growth is undertaking bank stabilisation work in the Road Reserve on the East Tamar Highway approximately one kilometre north of Fourteen Mile Creek.

Why is the Department of State Growth doing this work?

The work is required to repair a short section of embankment, approximately 50 metres long, on the western side of the road.  This will involve earthworks to reconstruct the bank beside the road.


The contract has been awarded to Tasmanian based company Shaw Contracting (Aust) Pty Ltd.  Works will commence in mid-May 2017 and should be completed by the end of June 2017, subject to weather conditions.

During construction one lane will be closed to traffic, leaving one lane open in each direction.  Reduced speed limits at the work site are necessary for the safety of workers and the travelling public, so please slow down, approached the work site with caution and follow all traffic control instructions.
