Southern Outlet transit lane
The Southern Outlet between Kingston and Hobart carries one of the highest daily traffic volumes on our State road network.
The Southern Outlet between Kingston and Hobart carries one of the highest daily traffic volumes on our State road network. Building a fifth lane to accommodate improved access for public transport and emergency services is a key aspect of the Greater Hobart Transport Vision.
The transit lane is proposed to operate northbound between Olinda Grove and Macquarie Street, as a ‘T3’ lane. That means it would be available for use by private vehicles carrying three or more occupants, and buses, taxis, motorbikes, and emergency service vehicles.
Public display for the Southern Projects will take place in two stages. Stage one is for the Kingborough park and ride facilities and related bus service changes and will take place from 18 November - 2 December 2020. Stage two will be for the Southern Outlet Transit Lane and the Macquarie and Davey Streets Bus Priority and will take place in early 2021.
