About the project

This project includes a southern bypass of Sorell between the Tasman Highway near Giblin Drive and the Arthur Highway near Nugent Road. The Bypass allows Southern Beaches and Tasman Peninsula traffic to avoid driving through Sorell to connect with the Arthur Highway.

There is a roundabout at the Giblin Drive end to facilitate traffic movement to both Sorell and towards the causeway and a roundabout at the Tasman Highway near Nugent Road to facilitate the movement of vehicles into Sorell.

Sorell Southern Bypass opened in 2022

The new Sorell Southern Bypass opened in July 2022.

The 2 km road runs between the Tasman Highway on the southern side of Sorell and the Arthur Highway near Nugent Road, with roundabouts at each end to help keep traffic moving and a speed limit of 80km/hr.
