Tasman Highway road closure near Orford

Tasman Highway road closure near Orford

The Department of State Growth has closed the Tasman Highway at Paradise Gorge, west of Orford, for several weeks.

This closure is required to remove large rocks to manage the risk of rock fall.

The road closure will impact traffic in both directions.

Traffic from Hobart should access the East Coast via the Midland Highway and Lake Leake Road. Detour signage will be installed at key locations, including at Sorell, and the Lake Leake Road junction north of Swansea.

While Wielangta Road can be used, it is a gravel road and is not suitable for large volumes of traffic.

Road users should drive to the conditions.
