Access our current plans, strategies and reports developed by the State Road Division of the Department of State Growth.
This document talks about our objectives for the future of the state's road network.
The policy makes sure that we take a strategic approach when we deliver services to the community. This means we consider traffic and freight trends, population growth, the environment, heritage and industry development.
This document outlines our physical and financial management of the state road network, including a bigger focus on customers.
We are committed to keeping Pioneer Avenue into the future, and making sure that Pioneer Avenue trees will be replaced where possible.
These Guidelines say how we will consider the Pioneer Avenue plantings through the design and construction of the upgrades under the Midland Highway 10 Year Action Plan.

We did a study of traffic movements passing through inner Hobart. It showed that during the morning peak time more than three quarters of journeys that start in the east, north or south of Hobart, end in the city.
During the afternoon peak time, more than two thirds of journeys that end in the east, north or south of Hobart, began in the city.
This shows that most commuters from greater Hobart are travelling to and from inner Hobart.
The full report is available on the Traffic in Hobart page.
In August 2017, we did a study of traffic movements passing through inner Launceston.
The study showed that in the morning peak just over half of all journeys from each of the outer regions (north west, north east, east, west and south of Launceston) ended in inner Launceston.
It also showed that in the afternoon peak, for each of the outer regions, about half of the traffic began in inner Launceston.
This shows that about half of commuters from all the outer regions are travelling to and from inner Launceston.
The full report is available on the Traffic in Launceston page.
We commissioned a report into Hobart traffic congestion in 2016.
Hobart Congestion: Traffic Analysis 2016 report (PDF).
We did a comprehensive audit on the condition of the state's roads as at 1 July 2015. This document has the results of that audit. It has information about the age and asset replacement profiles for roads and bridges managed by us.
The Austroads Congestion and Reliability Review proposes a way to identify and assess ways to improve congestion. It talks about the key areas of focus for road and transport agency capability development to help agencies develop ways to reduce congestion.
