map

Purpose

The project was identified during the compilation on the Tasmania Government's Community Roads Program.

The primary objective is to modernise and simplify the junction of the Mersey Main Road and the Bass Highway in order to improve safety for all traffic at the junction.

These junction improvements will extend to include work on the junction of Henry Street with Bass Highway due to the influence of one on the other.

Road User and Safety Benefits

  • Dedicated right turn lanes odd the Bass Highway for both Mersey Main Road and Henry Street.

  • Rationalisation of the Mersey Main Road junction to a single point of entry/exit.

  • Improvements to the Henry Street junction to facilitate movements of semi-trailers.

Current Status

  • The project is currently in the planning and scoping phase.
  • The expectation is that an approved concept plan will be presented for design development by the end of June 2011.
  • A preliminary concept plan is shown above that provides an indication of the current status of the design.
