Traffic Signal Changes - Hobart

The Tasmanian Government took ownership of Macquarie Street and Davey Street in December 2018 .

To help ease congestion in Hobart, the Department of State Growth will be making changes to traffic signals at six intersections across the CBD this January.

The changes will include adding right-turn signals at five of the intersections, allowing through traffic to continue straight ahead, while right turning vehicles wait for pedestrians to cross.

Changes will also be made to the timing of the signals at the pedestrian crossing at the intersection of Davey Street and the Southern Outlet to allow better coordination with other traffic signals along Davey Street.
