About the project

We are committed to building a link road between the Huon Highway and Flood Road.

The link road will divert Cygnet-bound highway traffic from Main Street Huonville. It will reduce congestion and improve safety through Huonville town centre.

In early 2022, the community and key stakeholders provided valuable feedback on two options for the Link Road - a Northern Route and a Southern Route.

Following expert engineering and environmental assessments and the feedback from the community we have chosen the Northern Route as the preferred alignment for this important infrastructure upgrade.

More than 60 per cent of the responses received during the community consultation process in January - February 2022 preferred the Northern Route, which would run from Main Street, opposite Orchard Avenue, southeast to the top of Flood Road.

The Northern Route is also the Huon Valley Council’s preferred option.

Community consultation

We have chosen a route for the Huon Link Road following feedback from the community in early 2022.

Following community consultation and expert engineering and environmental assessments, the Northern Route has been chosen as the preferred alignment.

Responses received during community consultation showed 61 per cent preferred the northern route, which would run from Main Street, opposite Orchard Avenue, southeast to the top of Flood Road. The Northern Route is also the Huon Valley Council’s preferred option.
