1About the project

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.

Other locations include:

  • Willie Smith’s Apple Shed - (click link for status of this project.)
  • Reid Fruits
  • Basin Road (which provides access to Hansen Orchards)
  • The Honey Pot
  • Mountain River Road (Grove shop).
