3Midland Highway safety upgrades

When travelling between Hobart and Launceston along the Midland Highway you will be travelling through several road work sites.

You should allow an extra 45 minutes for your journey if travelling the full length of the Highway.

Please slow down and follow the directions of traffic controllers and signs.

For more information about the Midland Highway Safety Upgrades projects.

4Why are speed limits reduced on roadwork sites when no one is working?

Sometimes a lower speed limit stays in place at roadwork sites even when no obvious work is occurring.

  • Workers could be setting up or packing down a site.
  • There may be changes to the road surface or the center separation.
  • There could be new or no line marking or barriers or road workers and equipment on the road or at the side of the road.
  • Sometimes bad weather delays roadworks for a long time, and so the lower speed limit stays until the work is finished.

Speed limits on work sites are mandatory, meaning by law you must obey the speed limit and can be fined if you do not. The need to reduce the speed may not be obvious, but reduced speed limits are for your safety and the safety of road workers.

For more information about the Midland Highway Safety Upgrades projects, please visit http://www.midlandhighway.tas.gov.au/

Reduced speed limits and other traffic management are important for protecting road workers, and also to reduce the risks to the travelling public, including the risk of damage to vehicles.
