Motorists travelling to Hobart Airport are advised to allow an extra 10 minutes due to work currently underway at the airport roundabout on the Tasman Highway at Holyman Avenue.
The work is aimed to reduce congestion and delays and to
provide better access to and through the roundabout.
It includes the addition of a second lane to the
existing roundabout, as well as improved entry and exit points, the removal of
the merge approach from Hobart and the addition of a second lane on the
approach from Sorell.
RACT advises motorists to drive with caution through the
area and to follow the direction of road signs and traffic controllers.
The work commenced one week after the Road
Congestion in Australia report prepared by the Australian Automobile
Association found that Hobart is the fourth most congested city in the country
and has the most variable airport route, with average travel speeds decreasing
by 3.6 per cent since 2013.
Construction is expected to be completed early next year.
