Channel Highway - Bonnet Hill Safety Improvements

The Tasmanian Government is committed to improving the safety for all road users travelling along the Channel Highway in Bonnet Hill.

By the conclusion of these works there will be a complete sealed shoulder for the uphill direction over Bonnet Hill.

About the project


The project site is located on the Channel Highway, Bonnet Hill, from Proctors Road to Baringa Road, Taroona.

Why is the Department of State Growth doing work on this road?

These safety improvements will provide increased space for all road users (including cyclists) to travel safely through the uphill sections of Bonnet Hill.

The works include:

  • Widened and sealed shoulders to provide a safer shared environment for all road users.
  • Improved signage when approaching curves to reduce run-off road risk.

Construction update - March 2019

Work started in October 2018 on the section of road between the Shot Tower and Bonnie Brae Road (known as Glen Albyn Corner). An additional 100 metres of shoulder widening towards the Shot Tower end of the site has also been included in the project. These widening works are now complete.

Line marking work will start in early March and will be complete by mid-March 2019, weather permitting.

Please allow extra time if travelling through this area, and follow all directions given by traffic controllers for your safety and that of our workers.
