Midland Highway 10 Year Action Plan

Travel time a focus

Travel time a focus

18 July 2017

The Department of State Growth is working with  our construction contractors to ensure the works on the Highway are completed safely, on time and on budget, while minimising delays.

Motorists need to plan well ahead and allow extra time to complete their journey. 

The extent of the work under way will continue to cause some delays for motorists travelling the Highway.

However, we expect current delays of 30-45 minutes on a journey between Hobart and Launceston to be reduced to less than 30 minutes by June this year after the completion of a number of projects.
