|Wednesday night’s New Norfolk traffic snarl.|
WORKING hours on the roadworks near the New Norfolk bridge would be reduced in order to reduce traffic congestion, the Department of State Growth announced yesterday.
Following feedback from the community, we have changed the working hours for this project to 9 am–2.30 pm, from today,” a spokesman posted on the Facebook page of Roads Tasmania.
“We will continue to monitor the project site and work with the contractors on ways to minimise traffic impacts. We will keep the community informed if any further changes are required. Thank you for your patience while we complete these essential work.”
The Department of State Growth recently announced that work on strengthening the failed road surface around the Montagu St roundabout would start this week and conclude in August. The first two days of roadworks resulted in traffic queues in all directions, at times reaching Warner Ave at Fairview and Tynwald Park on Hobart Rd.
