Tasman Highway / Skyline Drive Intersection Safety Upgrade

The Tasman Highway/ Skyline Drive Intersection is an important aspect of the Tasmanian Government's initiative to upgrade the Great Eastern Drive.

The Great Eastern Drive project will enhance the driving experience and improve safety for visitors and locals on this iconic stretch of the Tasman Highway.

About the project

The project will deliver improved road safety, improved pedestrian safety and safer bus movements at the intersection.

We will consult with stakeholders in December about the two proposed design options and ask the community for their feedback.

The design will be finalised after the consultation has been completed.
