Tasmania is enjoying economic sunshine for the moment and the Hodgeman Government is keen to make sure that there is something to show for it. The Bridgewater Bridge, the northern Gateway to Hobart is finally going ahead after being on the drawing board for years. Other roads receiving attention are those around Hobart Airport and central business district; a new river crossing near Launceston; the Bass Hwy in the Tasmanian northwest and tourist roads.

• $121m BRIDGEWATER BRIDGE ($576m project, Commonwealth paying the rest)
• Continuation of Midland Highway (10 year) upgrade, the main highway linking northern and southern Tassie
• $27 million investment towards a new Hobart Airport interchange
• $53 million toward second Tamar River crossing at University Drive, North Launceston
• $30.8 million for Central Hobart roads incl. Macquarie and Davey Streets, and for starting a fifth lane for the Southern Fwy
• $51.7 million towards upgrading tourist roads
• Duplication of East Derwent Hwy in Hobart’s eastern suburbs
• Road widening on Evandale Road between Launceston Airport and Evandale
• New overpass of Bass Hwy at Leith, northern coast
• Bass Hwy upgrade at Brittons Swamp
