Richmond Road carries a diverse mix of traffic including commuters, agricultural vehicles, tourists and cyclists. It also has a disappointing crash history with some 86 crashes reported – including ten fatal or serious – between 2005 and 2015.

1Construction update January 2021

Construction has started on two sections of Richmond Road, between Malcolms Hut Road and Grass Tree Hill Road intersections and is expected to be completed mid-2021.

2Completed works

Work started in November 2019 on the Cambridge Link Road. The Link Road opened to traffic in July 2020 and connects Richmond Road to the Tasman Highway Acton Interchange. The Cambridge Link Road provides an alternative route that avoids Cambridge Village and the busy Richmond Road and Cambridge Road junction.

This package of work also included safety improvements on 3.2 kilometres of road between University of Tasmania Farm and Malcolms Hut Road and upgrades to Boyes Street junction.

Richmond Golf Club to the University of Tasmania Farm - these works were completed in December 2018 and included shoulder sealing, drainage improvements and upgrades to Denholms Road junction.

Malcolms Hut Road Junction to Dry Creek – these works were completed in April 2019 and included construction of sealed shoulders and upgrades to the Malcolms Hut Road junction.

3Future works

Following the implementation of the Master Plan, the Department will commission an independent review of Richmond Road. The review will establish an appropriate speed limit with consideration of the completed road widening and safety improvement works.
