As part of the Richmond Road Masterplan the new Cambridge Link Road has now opened in Tasmania.
The link road connects Richmond Road to the Tasman Highway Acton Interchange, providing a more efficient route that avoids Cambridge Village and the busy junction of Richmond and Cambridge Road.
Richmond Road is important for daily commuters including agricultural and commercial traffic. Visitors and cyclists also use the route.
The overall Masterplan is being delivered in eight sections over a 10.6-kilometre stretch of road from Cambridge to Richmond. Upgrades will aim to provide a safer and more consistent environment along the road.
The Masterplan includes wider lanes, sealed shoulders, improved road alignment, junction upgrades and slow vehicle turnouts.
Planning for the final upgrades is underway, this will cover two sections of Richmond Road between Malcolms Hut Road and Grasstree Hill intersection. Construction is expected to begin late this year.
The Richmond Road Masterplan is part of the Tasmanian Governments largest ever infrastructure plan and will help to boost the economy and support jobs.
