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.


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.

Current situation

The final sections to be completed in this project are as follows:

  • Glen Albyn corners
  • Acton straight
  • Historical Wall corner
  • Lynden straight.

These works will be undertaken by contractor Hazell Bros Group Pty Ltd.
