The works come as part of the state government‘s $8 million package to improve road safety on the island.
Bruny Island is one of Tasmania’s key tourism destinations and the upgrades will aim to improve safety while further enhancing the visitor experience at the location.
As part of the $8 million package the state government has granted $1.5 million to Kingborough Council to implement key recommendations from the Bruny Island Destination Action Plan and the Bruny Island Liveability Study.
Current works include sealing Main Road between Alonnah and Lunawanna to include improved drainage and reshaping sharp corners. These works will help to ensure the popular tourist road meets the needs of visitors and locals.
Works on the main road are expected to be complete in early 2020.
The state government has invested a record $3.6 billion in infrastructure across the 2019-20 State Budget. This includes $1.6 billion invested into crucial transport infrastructure across the state.
