Huon Highway / Sandfly Road Intersection Safety Upgrade

The State Government has committed $2 million to deliver immediate safety improvements for the Huon Highway / Sandfly Road Intersection.

About the project

Over the last 10 years there have been 33 reported crashes at the intersection: 1 serious injury, 8 minor injury, 7 requiring first aid and 17 property damage only. The main type of crash involves vehicles turning right out of Sandfly road towards Kingston.

The project will improve road safety, freight transport movements and safer bus movements at the intersection.

Project update - December 2019

Following the feedback received at community consultation sessions in July, we have reviewed the comments and suggestions received on the initial concept design. These are being used to inform and revise design options.

We are also continuing to work with Kingborough and Huon Valley Councils, industry owners and key stakeholders on the project.

A final design will be made available to the community at the end of this process, and everyone who provided feedback will be notified of the final design.

Community consultation

We started community consultation with nearby landowners and key stakeholders in June.

The design concept was presented to the public for consultation and feedback at two public information sessions on 3 and 6 July 2019 at the Sandfly Hall.

The concept design was also on display at the Kingborough and Huon Valley Council offices from 3 – 19 July 2019 for community feedback.
