The Hodgman Liberal Government is building Tasmania’s future by providing critical infrastructure upgrades right across the state.
The 2017-18 budget includes over $19 million across the forward estimates for the strengthening of up to 34 bridges across the state.
These upgrades will allow for both larger volumes and more efficient movement of freight to be moved right across the state, resulting in increased business productivity and a boost to the local economy.
With Tasmania’s road network carrying the majority of the state’s freight, the efficient movement of freight is fundamental to the State’s economic productivity and we are acting to ensure its prosperity well into the future.
Other industries will also benefit, with the upgrades allowing increased access for special purpose vehicles such as cranes or concrete pumps and the transportation of oversize over mass loads.
