We have sealed the unsealed section of Bruny Island Main Road between Alonnah and Lunawanna.

We also improved drainage and the design of some sharp corners to make the road safer, and added wildlife warning signage.

Works started in October 2019, and were finished in May 2020.

We have made the northbound lane on the East Derwent Highway (heading towards Old Beach) wider, to make room for a dedicated lane for vehicles turning left into Jetty Road.

Work began in November 2019 and finished in March 2020.

Esk Main Road – Shoulder Sealing

We’ve recently completed shoulder sealing and safety improvements along Esk Main Road from Fingal and St Marys.

The work involved widening and sealing the road shoulder along two sections of road between Fingal and St Marys, over a total length of about 11.5 kilometres.

The work has made the road safer by providing wider sealed shoulders and reflective pavement markers.

Construction will started in late October 2019 and was finished in May 2020.

Lyell Highway Hamilton to Ouse - Shoulder Sealing

We’ve sealed about 4 kilometres of road between Hamilton and Ouse.

We have upgraded 7.7 km of Sumac and Roger River Roads, between Kanunnah Bridge on the Arthur River and Buffs Road, south of Roger River. The work included resurfacing the road, improving drainage and maintenance of the road edges.

Upgrading the road has made the road more accessible, providing another way to access the Tarkine Drive experience, a popular touring destination for visitors and locals. It has also provided a safer, stronger, and longer lasting road.

Works were completed in April 2020.

Waterhouse Road

We’ve sealed two sections of Waterhouse Road, starting at Banca Road heading towards Gladstone for about 5 km, and for 10.5 km, from Boobyalla to the existing sealed section of road east of Gladstone.
