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

The work will provide safer turning movements for vehicles leaving the Tasman Highway travelling onto the arterial road network through the construction of a channelised right turn lane on the Tasman Highway onto Louisville Road.


The project is currently out to tender. Construction of the project is scheduled to commence in late 2017. The road works will be performed under an approved traffic management plan by the contractor to ensure the least possible disruption to road users.  

Speed restrictions and altered traffic conditions will be in place throughout the construction period to ensure a safe work place for construction staff and the travelling public.  Delays are to be expected in the vicinity of the construction works at times.  Please obey all signs and allow extra time for travelling through the construction site.
