Huon Highway - Sandfly Road - intersection safety upgrade
The Tasmanian Government has committed to deliver safety improvements for the Huon Highway / Sandfly Road Intersection.
Over the last 10 years, there have been 33 reported crashes at the intersection. The numbers per category are:
The main type of crash involves vehicles turning right out of Sandfly road towards Kingston.
The revised design will improve road safety and provide safer bus and freight transport movements at the intersection.
The project is currently out to tender. Construction is planned for the 2020/21 construction season.
We asked people for their feedback in June/July 2019 on a concept design to improve safety at the intersection.
We considered the feedback from the community and key stakeholders, and used it to develop a new concept design.
The revised concept design was presented to key stakeholders and the wider community in July/August, 2020 and includes the following features.
We undertook a second round of consultation and invited feedback from the community in July 2020 on a new concept design, the elongated wide median treatment, to improve safety at the intersection (see image).
We considered all feedback, including individual feedback, as well as having consulted with Kingborough and Huon Valley Councils, local industry, business owners, and key stakeholders to determine a final design solution. This solution is based on community consultation and feedback
