2On – ramp to Tasman Highway closed at Mornington - May 2022

Plan ahead for traffic changes on the Tasman Bridge on the night of Monday, 16 May 2022.

The speed limit will be reduced to 40 km/h leading up to the work area. Please keep to the posted speed limits and follow the directions of traffic controllers and signs.

Road users should allow up to 15 minutes extra travel time if travelling from South Arm Highway or Flagstaff Gully Link towards Sorell.

Resurfacing includes the removal and replacement of the existing road surface and line marking. This improves the strength and condition of the road, creating a longer lasting and safer road network.

Please see the detour map here.

3Emergency road closures

Emergency road closures, or closures due to public events are managed by Tasmania Police.

For all emergency road closures, visit the Tasmania Police Community Alerts webpage or TasAlert.

4Midland Highway safety upgrades

When travelling between Hobart and Launceston along the Midland Highway you will be travelling through several road work sites.

You should allow an extra 45 minutes for your journey if travelling the full length of the Highway.

Please slow down and follow the directions of traffic controllers and signs.

For more information about the Midland Highway Safety Upgrades projects.

5Why are speed limits reduced on roadwork sites when no one is working?

Sometimes a lower speed limit stays in place at roadwork sites even when no obvious work is occurring.

  • Workers could be setting up or packing down a site.
  • There may be changes to the road surface or the center separation.
  • There could be new or no line marking or barriers or road workers and equipment on the road or at the side of the road.
  • Sometimes bad weather delays roadworks for a long time, and so the lower speed limit stays until the work is finished.

Speed limits on work sites are mandatory, meaning by law you must obey the speed limit and can be fined if you do not. The need to reduce the speed may not be obvious, but reduced speed limits are for your safety and the safety of road workers.

For more information about the Midland Highway Safety Upgrades projects, please visit http://www.midlandhighway.tas.gov.au/

Reduced speed limits and other traffic management are important for protecting road workers, and also to reduce the risks to the travelling public, including the risk of damage to vehicles.
