New Bridgewater Bridge
As part of the Hobart City Deal, the Australian and Tasmanian Governments have committed $576 million for a new Bridgewater Bridge. This is the largest ever investment in a single transport infrastructure project in Tasmania’s history.
The Bridgewater Bridge is a critical part of the transport and freight link between the northern and southern regions of Tasmania.
Hobart’s outer suburbs are growing rapidly, and the increasing traffic is causing frustration, with congestion impacting travel time reliability and delaying locals, commuters and freight vehicles.
Building a new Bridgewater Bridge will improve safety and reduce congestion for the 22,000 vehicles that travel across the bridge each day.
