With $827 million in roads and bridges work over the next two years, the Tasmanian Liberal Government is ensuring our civil construction and engineering sectors have the work and confidence they need to grow their businesses.
It is critically important the Government maintains this steady and strong pipeline of construction work, with our roads and bridges program central to this.
This is just one part of our $1.8 billion infrastructure blitz over two years, which will generate an estimated $3.1 billion in construction and support around 15,000 jobs.
A number of tenders have recently closed, and are expected to be awarded soon for construction this spring and summer. These include the two contracts for the final sections in our Midland Highway Action Plan, the third tranche of upgrades on the Great Eastern Drive, and the tender for the upgrade of the Midway Point intersection.
We also have a range of tenders currently open for bids, including:
While Rebecca White and Labor are busy churning out misleading media releases talking down our local industry and Tasmania’s economy, we are getting on with the job of delivering job-creating infrastructure across the state.

By investing in infrastructure, we are investing in Tasmanian jobs.
