About the study

This study will help find ways to improve the safety and connectivity between West Tamar communities and Launceston for all types of transport.

This project supports the Tasmanian Government’s Launceston and Tamar Valley Traffic Vision, which aims to address traffic congestion and improve safety and travel time reliability on the Launceston and Tamar Valley road network.

The Tasmanian Government has also constructed $1.5 million of cycling facilities between Launceston and Legana. This has included resealing and widening of road shoulders to provide an improved surface for cyclists.

Update - February 2022

We have released the West Tamar Highway Corridor Improvement Plan, which lists 14 ways to improve the highway between Launceston and Legana.

The plan was developed from the West Tamar Highway Corridor Study, after two rounds of extensive community consultation in mid-2020 and mid-2021.

To view the feedback provided during the consultation process, please visit our online interactive map.
