The Hodgman Liberal Government is Building Tasmania’s Future by ensuring we have the transport infrastructure we need for a growing economy and a growing population.
This Budget includes $1.8 million for our Hobart Traffic Congestion Project to fund initiatives aimed at making peak period traffic more reliable and efficient.
There is no single solution to peak period traffic congestion. Improved traffic flow will be gained by a range of measures implemented over time.
Measures will include the installation of a system to provide real-time traffic information for commuters, upgrading the co-ordination of traffic lights on key corridors and upgrading traffic signal systems.

The Liberal Government is committed to working with local councils and the community to put in place the right policies to respond to Hobart’s road infrastructure and transport challenges for the next 20 to 30 years.
