Michael Ferguson,Minister for Infrastructure and Transport
The Hodgman Liberal Government is investing in generational upgrades to our road infrastructure to set up our state for the future.
We are continuing to progress our South-East Traffic Solution to improve safety and travel times for commuters and visitors on the Tasman and Arthur Highways in the state’s south.
Tenders for the new overtaking lane on Arthur Highway open this weekend.
As well as a new southbound overtaking lane, the Arthur Highway upgrade will provide turn lanes at Valleyfield Road and Schofield Drive, as well as U-turn facilities and safer bus stops for public transport.
These improvements will help cater for future traffic increases resulting from strong residential growth in Sorell and southern beaches, as well as the growing number of visitors travelling to the Tasman Peninsula.
Construction on the Arthur Highway overtaking lane is expected to start in late 2019.
