Midland Highway 10 Year Action Plan

Planning your trip

Roadworks and closures

When travelling along the Midland Highway motorists will be travelling through several road work sites. Please allow approximately an extra 45 minutes for your journey if travelling the full length of the Highway, 25 minutes extra between Hobart and Campbell Town, or 20 minutes extra between Launceston and Campbell Town.

Below is your weekly roundup of roadworks and closures on the Midland Highway. Please check this roundup to see where roadworks may affect your trip:

Current Roadworks Roundup

Motorists are reminded to slow down and comply with the posted speed limits in all roadwork sites. Speed limits may be reduced when there are changes to the road surface, new or no line marking, changes to centre separation, new or no barriers, or road workers and equipment on the road or at the side of the road.  The need to reduce the speed may not be obvious, but reduced speed limits are for your safety and the safety of road workers.

Please note that works may be subject to change at short notice due to weather.

As always, for the latest emergency road closure updates (including alerts about icy roads), visit
