Preliminary works - Hobart Airport Interchange – June 2020

Show / Hide

Preliminary works will begin on the Hobart Airport Interchange project, Tasman Highway, from 22 June 2020.

The Australian and Tasmanian Governments are constructing the Hobart Airport Interchange, which will replace the existing Hobart Airport roundabout with an overpass.

The new interchange will improve safety, reduce traffic congestion and increase safety.

Site clearing and preparation works will include:

  • Clearing vegetation
  • Establishing a site office
  • Erecting fencing
  • Relocating services
  • Ground improvement works

These works are necessary to be completed in advance of the start of construction.

An image of the new overpass design is provided below.

The project is expected to be complete in mid-2022.

Working times

Crew will be working between 7.00am and 5.00pm from Monday to Friday during preliminary works.


The work will involve the use of machinery, which generates some noise. Every effort will be made to minimise noise by turning off machinery and vehicles when not in use.

Traffic impacts

Speed reductions will be in place during working hours.

Temporary single-lane closures will be required outside of peak traffic times for the protection of workers close to the highway.

Motorists should plan for up to eight (8) minutes of extra travel time.

Please keep to speed limits and follow the directions of traffic controllers and signs.
