Traffic in Launceston
Access information about traffic conditions in Launceston including growth volumes, network capacity and facts and figures.
Launceston is Tasmania's second largest city, with the CBD providing employment and services to the inner residential areas, and those from rural locations up to an hour away. The five main routes providing access to the city are East Tamar Highway, West Tamar Highway, Tasman Highway, Bass Highway and Midland Highway.
Demand on the Launceston road network has grown, resulting in increased traffic during morning and afternoon peak travel times. Future changes, such as the relocation of the University of Tasmania Launceston campus from Newnham to Inveresk will have an impact on where and how people move through the city.
