Bridge Replacement Works 2018/19

We're replacing Tasmanian bridges on key routes to retain the existing levels of service for heavy vehicle freight and community access.

For all sites the new bridges will be built in the same location as the existing bridge. Temporary bridges will be in place while they are being built to reduce the impact to road users.

Changed traffic conditions and speed restrictions will be in place during the works, to keep workers and road users safe. Please follow all signs and allow enough time for travelling through the work area.
