Contract awarded for Mowbray Connector upgrade

The construction contract for Tasmania’s $5 million East Tamar Highway – Mowbray Connector Intersection Upgrade has been awarded to Shaw Contracting.

Infrastructure Minister Michael Ferguson said the contract includes installation of a roundabout to replace the current turning arrangement at the intersection of East Tamar Highway and Mowbray Link.

“Tasmania has the strongest growing economy in the country and in 2019-20 we are delivering a record investment of over $1.6 billion in the job-creating infrastructure our state needs,” Mr. Ferguson said.

“This project is part of the state government’s commitment to improving safety and traffic flow on the East Tamar Highway.”

Works are scheduled to begin in September and finish early next year.
