Rokeby Corridor Planning Study
We recently completed a Planning Study for the Rokeby Road Corridor. To help complete this study, we convened a working group of key stakeholders from Clarence City Council, Metro Tasmania and the Department of Education.
The South Arm Highway and South Arm Secondary Road, between Pass Road and Acton Road, is one of the Eastern Shore’s major transport corridors. Two previous planning studies were undertaken in 1988 and 2007 and since that time there has been significant residential development and growth in traffic volumes.
The Planning Study identified options to improve safety for all road users, improve travel time reliability, and encourage public and active transport such as, walking and cycling.
The Study will looked at how to widen South Arm Road from two lanes to four lanes between Pass Road and Acton Road, when this should be done, and how the work should be staged in line with future traffic increases.
We examined options to improve key intersections along the road such as Burtonia Street, Hawthorn Place, Droughty Point Road, Oakdowns Parade and Acton Road. The Study looked at new infrastructure to encourage public and active transport.
Any concept designs developed by the study will be subject to future budget submission and would not be final. Concept designs would be subject to public consultation before construction.
