TRAFFIC CHANGES THIS WEEKEND

HOBART ROADS
This long weekend sees a number of changes to traffic conditions across Hobart and Southern Tassie  

ARGYLE STREET, HOBART - THE AUSTRALIAN WOODEN BOAT FESTIVAL

Argyle Street between Davey Street and Morrison Street will be closed to traffic from 9am Saturday 11 February 2017  to 4pm Monday 13 February 2017 for the Australian Wooden Boat Festival.

Friday 10 February night works: roundabout to be replaced with traffic signals

Traffic conditions at the Brooker Highway Junction Upgrades project will change this Friday, 10 February.

The roundabout where Howard Road and Renfrew Circle meet Brooker Highway will be removed and replaced with a new, larger intersection controlled by traffic lights. At the same time, north bound traffic on the Brooker will be moved onto new permanent traffic lanes.

Works are scheduled to start around 7:00 pm after the evening peak on Friday, 10 February and from this time:

  • traffic lights will be turned off at the Goodwood Road / Elwick Road intersection Highway to allow new traffic signals to be installed at Howard Road / Renfrew Circle
  • traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction and road workers will control traffic through both intersections until the new traffic lights are activated on Saturday, 11 February
  • local detours may be in place, and there may be delays of up to 15 minutes.

To safely move traffic onto new northbound lanes, traffic at the Elwick/Goodwood and Howard/Renfrew intersections will be stopped in all directions for approximately 15 minutes to completely clear the intersections. This will occur in the late night of Friday or very early hours of Saturday.

Signage is in place to alert motorists to the changing conditions and motorists are encouraged to consider taking alternative routes during the changeover works.

Reduced speed limits at the work site are necessary for the safety of workers and the travelling public, so please slow down, approach the intersection with caution and follow all traffic control instructions.

The installation of the traffic lights at Howard Road / Renfrew Circle is the last major change to traffic conditions at the work site. These changes will improve traffic flow through the work site by providing additional lanes for traffic, and allow the traffic signals at both intersections to be coordinated.

Minor works will continue over the next few months as final works are completed, and during this time drivers can expect ongoing changes to traffic conditions.

Below is the Brooker Highway - New Goodwood Road / Elwick Road Intersection & New Howard Road / Renfrew Circle Intersection
