Changed traffic condition: Tasman Highway, Holyman Avenue approach

Please be advised the Department of State Growth is arranging for the current ‘left lane ends’ merge to be replaced with zip-merge to improve traffic conditions and reduce driver frustration.

Changes to line markings and traffic signs are scheduled for Wednesday 24 May 2017, weather permitting.

A variable message board will be located on site for 2 to 4 weeks advertising motorists of the change.

Zip merging is where one lane merges into another with no give way lines on the road. Drivers must give way to any vehicle that is ahead of them and vehicles alternate to form one lane, like teeth in a zip.

If you have any concern, please contact Department of State Growth on 1800 030 688 or email:
