Road Widening Project, Arthur Highway, Eaglehawk Neck

The Tasmanian Government is improving the safety of the Arthur Highway at Eaglehawk Neck by improving the road surface and widening the road between Old Jetty Road and Blowhole Road. They will also be making provision for a pathway between the Dog Line Memorial and Blowhole Road. The project is funded by the Tasmanian Government as part of the Visitor Economy Roads Package.

Field investigations

The Department of State Growth will be carrying out field investigations to help us develop a design for the proposed Eaglehawk Neck road widening works.

Investigation work will be undertaken to obtain information on underground utilities, assess the strength of the road surface, and carry out geotechnical testing using a hand digger.

This work will be carried out intermittently over the 2019-20 summer period. No investigation work will be undertaken during the Christmas period. .

They will be working between 7.00 am and 5.00 pm from Monday to Friday, weather permitting. We will let you know in advance if we need to do any work outside these times.

How will the work affect you?

This work will have minimal impact to local residents. Every effort will be made to minimise noise by turning off vehicles when not in use.

Traffic changes

During the days where there are field investigations occurring, there will be some temporary traffic changes to ensure the safety of workers and road users.

Lane closures and a reduced speed limit will be in place during work hours and may affect travel times. Motorists should allow up to 5 minutes extra travel time during this work. Please keep to speed limits and follow the directions of traffic controllers and signs.
