Roadworks working times

The Tasmanian Government has introduced time restrictions on planned road works on State roads in the Greater Hobart area, as part of ongoing efforts to address congestion.

This new policy provides clarity and consistency for road contractors and commuters, and ensures that works on or near the road do not occur during peak times.

From now on:

  • Works on or near the road on weekdays will be permitted with conditions only between 9.30 am to 3.00 pm and 6:30pm to 6:30am.
  • Works on or near the road will be permitted with conditions on weekends

Road works in response to emergency situations are permitted at any time. If the works must occur between 7.30 am and 9.30 am, or 3.30 pm and 6.30 pm weekdays, the contractor will undertake minimal work to make the site safe. Further works will be scheduled outside of peak times.
