Huon Highway - Dowlings Road - safety improvements
The Department of State Growth is improving safety on the Huon Highway at Dowlings Road.
The project will improve safety for all road users along this section of the highway by widening the northbound lane towards Hobart to provide safer turning movements for vehicles waiting to turn right into Dowlings Road, which provides access to Kate Hill Winery.
The Tasmanian Government has committed $1.5 million for Huon Highway Priority Safety Upgrades.
This project is one of several locations identified for safety upgrades by Huon Valley Council.

The project is located on the Huon Highway at Dowlings Road just north of Huonville.

Construction will start on 1 June 2020 and is expected to be completed by 30 June 2020, weather permitting.
We will be working from 7:30 am and 5:00 pm Monday to Friday, and on some Saturdays if required.
There will be single lane closures and a reduced speed limit during the works, to keep our workers and all road users safe.
Road users should allow up to 5 minutes extra travel time during this work.
Please keep to speed limits and follow the directions of traffic controllers and signs.
