Southern Explorer Feasibility Study

Jacobs was engaged by Derwent Valley Council (DVC) to undertake the Southern Explorer Feasibility Study (the Study). The Southern Explorer (Plenty Link Road) provides a link between the Derwent Valley and the Huon Valley.

The potential to upgrade the Southern Explorer to provide a tourism and transport link between the two valleys was identified in the 2010 Southern Tasmanian Integrated Transport Strategy. Funding for the Study was secured through the Australian Government’s Tasmanian Jobs and Growth Plan.
