Hobart airport interchange project expands freight and commuter capacity

For the project, the Australian Government contributed a total of $37.1 million. Meanwhile, the Tasmanian Government invested a total of $9.3 million.Jointly funded by the two governments the project is a part of the South East Traffic Solution.

Overall, the bigger project strives to provide a consistent four-lane highway that runs between the Hobart CBD and Sorell.

The interchange serves as a replacement for a roundabout, that was nearing capacity due to a large increase in freight traffic as well as commuters. More especially from fast-growing residential areas around Hobart and Sorell’s Southern Beaches areas.

The project will support the planned improvement to the Hobart International Airport in catering to more freight and tourists. It features on and off-ramps from the highway accessing the airport on Kennedy Drive, Cranston Parade, and Holyman Avenue.
