Yeah I'm not too concerned either. I'd like a comfortable, modern terminal with enough room to cope with all the delayed JetStar flights with ease. Quick check in, speedy bar service.

Well, on a cold, wet and windy July evening a nice warm, bright airbridge would be very nice! Darwin Airport has them and so has Canberra Airport which has similiar pax numbers to Hobart. Hobart Airport mangement simply did no want to spend the money. I think the majority of the travelling public would have welcomed them especially disabled people in wheelchairs and others who have difficulty walking and families with very young children.

Someone should tell Helen Burnet that all concrete cracks, even more so when architects don't want control joints...

The terminal expansion plan is known as "TXP" apparently. https://development.hobartairport.com.au/txp

The "Document Library" on the right is probably the most interesting.

Another in The Muckery's Airport Ravamp series:

Airbridges not included in Hobart Airport revamp but aviramps being trialled instead

MOBILE bridges providing safer access to aircraft are being trialled at Hobart Airport, says its chief operating officer.

This week, Hobart Airport unveiled expansion plans worth more than $200 million, which will double the footprint of the terminal.

But there was no provision for the installation of airbridges, despite calls for many years for their introduction at the airport to improve passenger safety and comfort.

Hobart Airport chief operating officer Matt Cocker said on Tuesday airbridges were not part of expansion designs, but they were talking to airlines about alternative boarding solutions, such as aviramps.

An aviramp is a mobile bridge with gentle slopes rather than stairs.

Mr Cocker said a trial had already taken place.

“Aviramps have been in use for a number of months and we are working with airlines to increase their use,” he said yesterday.

Last month, a passenger slipped and fell down a set of stairs will disembarking at Hobart Airport, leaving them with head injuries.

Tourism Industry Council Tasmania chief executive Luke Martin said airbridges were “not an urgent priority”.

“The airport and the airlines have made it clear that that would have to be funded by us paying more for our flights,” he said.

“I’m confident the airport know what they’re doing.

“It’s a 2030 vision, so it’s a short to medium term plan so there’s still the long-term vision to consider.”

The redevelopment is expected to take place in three stages over the next 11 years.

The $100 million first stage of the plan — to begin in December and be completed by December 2020 — will expand the departures lounge and facilities, and improve airline lounges and passenger screening facilities.

A mezzanine level will house the airline lounges and border agency support facilities.

It will also include the construction of a “swing” gate capable of providing for international processing facilities.

The final two stages are expected to be completed by 2030 and will deliver increased baggage processing facilities and further retail and food and beverage offerings.

From today's Mercury. Not really a fan of such detailed Master Planning. Generally, its just an excuse for consultants to make lots of money now and further generations of Councillors will ignore it anyway if it suits their domestic purposes...

THE Hobart City Council will attempt to create a defining vision for the city to help shape development for coming decades.

The council plans to spend up to $150,000 developing the Central Hobart Precinct Plan, which would aim to address a number of current issues in a single holistic plan.

Those issues include building height and form, the University of Tasmania relocation, traffic and movement and housing supply.

The proposed precinct planning, common in cities around the country, would be a first for Tasmania.

It would:

SET out zones where growth and change is envisaged.

DETERMINE optimal built form and building controls within each zone.

INFORM preparation of new planning standards across Greater Hobart to support the Hobart City Deal.

More than 60 blocks and 1300 lots are incorporated in the inner-city blueprint which would be bounded by Davey St to the south, Burnett St to the north, the Brooker Highway in the east and Molle and Harrington streets in the west.

Lord Mayor Anna Reynolds says the community has been calling for years for better strategic planning in the city.

The proposal has the support of Housing and Planning Minister Roger Jaensch, who met with elected members last week and indicated the State Government was prepared to contribute half of the cost.

A report on the proposed precinct plan is set to go before a special City Planning Committee tonight.

If approved, it would then be considered by the full council.

Lord Mayor Anna Reynolds said a precinct plan would put council on the front foot in communicating what development it was looking for.

“The community have been calling for years for better strategic planning in the city and now, with the Hobart City Deal as a catalyst, we can start doing this,” Cr Reynolds said.

“It provides the opportunity to address economic and social issues that are impacting on a city and develop a vision and plan that guides both private and public investment.

“If council agrees to take the next step, we will be on the way to developing a coherent masterplan to help shape the city’s development in the coming decades.”

She said rather than always reacting to developments, this was an opportunity to create and communicate a vision for the city and identify under-utilised areas “ripe for urban renewal”.

If approved, it would see local and state government team up to produce a proactive plan for Hobart.

In a letter to the Lord Mayor last month, Mr Jaensch said a more holistic approach was desirable to “avoid solving problems in one area, only to create more in another”.

He said the Government believed the growing demand for housing, education, business and tourism across Greater Hobart would be best managed through good urban design and careful planning

That probably has an element of truth and the cynic in me suspects it'll play out to a certain degree, but it's not a reason not to make an effort sometimes.

Short term political decisions piss me off no end.

Yeah, I’m not opposed to this per se. It’s much preferable to the alternative, which is height standards imposed independently of other considerations, such as the supply of developable land for denser housing.

Sandy Bay Hill Street moving along quickly. A crane has arrived and is installing the ubiquitous concrete panles already!

MONA’s new wing soft-opened today, sans some of the art. Again, they’re teasing the next extension, which will surely get underway before the hotel begins next year (notionally).
