Beauty Point, Beaconsfield, Exeter to Launceston via Grindelwald

Proposed Route Change

  • All services will have a direct route along the West Tamar Hwy and divert via Grindelwald but not via Rosevears (there will be alternative services to Rosevears from Rowella).
  • It is proposed to change the route into Beauty Point so there is greater coverage of residential areas. The outward trip would travel via Baggot St, Oxford St, Ross St and Charles St. This change does not affect the travel time. We want to hear what the Beauty Point community thinks about this change.
  • Inter-peak services will deviate into Legana Grove shopping centre, so that West Tamar passengers can shop locally at Legana.
