Current Capital Works Projects
Capital Works Program 2016/17
Coffee Creek rehabilitation
Restoration works along Coffee Creek at Huntingfield have been delayed due to wet weather and will now commence in the new year. These works will consist of general repair and reshaping of current scouring and erosion, provision of armoured riffle structures to reduce future erosion potential, and replanting of the creek line and adjacent banks with native plantings.
Huon Highway / Summerleas Road Intersection
The Department of State Growth is responsible for the construction of the new intersection. Members of the public can stay up-to-date on development by visiting their website - Huon Summerleas Interchange Upgrade.
Trucks will be moving between the project location and quarries at Websters Road for the next two months. All vehicles over 10 tonne are limited to 40 km/h during this period to minimise damage to the road and for the safety of motorists, pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders. Trucks will be travelling a circuit entering via Leslie Road and exiting via Sandfly Road so they will not have to pass each other on the narrow roads.
