Glenora Road renewal and maintenance works


Commencement: Late November 2019

Completion: Estimated completion mid March 2020, subject to weather, resources and other factors. 


This important project is being funded by a Tasmanian Government Grant of $2.5m as part of the Roads Package to Support Tasmania’s Visitor Economy. The project will enable the long awaited and greatly needed upgrade of Glenora Road, a major thoroughfare for residents and tourists visiting The Derwent Valley.

What will happen?

Works to include:

  • Upgrade of the Glenora Road / Gordon River Road intersection including improved ‘line of sight’, pavement works, new kerb and channel and new traffic Island
  • pavement rehabilitation and stabilisation of sections
  • resurfacing works
  • drainage works
  • vegetation management where required
  • safety improvements including ‘line of sight’ considerations
  • dip alignments and adjustments
  • appropriate road signage
  • linemarking, safety barriers and other safety considerations.

To reduce the overall number of days where works will be carried out, there will be multiple sites along the 17km from Gordon River Road to New Norfolk at any one time. A reduced speed limit will be in place for the entire stretch of road for the duration of the project for safety of motorists and workers.

While the contractor will aim to have both lanes open wherever possible during peak times, there will be single lane closures throughout the works period and delays of up to 15 minutes may be experienced where required for safety. 

The alternate route between the Glenora Rd/Gordon River Road intersection and New Norfolk via Lyell Highway will not be affected and will be open as usual with no speed restrictions.
