Construction started in November on the next package of works for the Richmond Road Master Plan. These works will continue until mid-2021.
Work includes a new Cambridge Link Road which will connect Richmond Road to the Tasman Highway Acton Interchange and provide an alternative route that avoids Cambridge Village and the busy Richmond Road and Cambridge Road junction.
The new Cambridge Link Road is expected to be complete by mid-2020, weather permitting.
This package of work also includes safety improvements on 3.2 kilometres of road between University of Tasmania Farm and Malcolms Hut Road and upgrades to Boyes Street junction.
During construction there will be some temporary traffic changes to keep workers and road users safe. There will be lane closures and a reduced speed limit in place during the work and this will affect travel times.
Road users should allow up to ten minutes extra travel time during this work.
Please keep to speed limits and follow the directions of traffic controllers and signs.
