Elizabeth Street roadworks - North Hobart

Elizabeth Street roadworks

As part of our ongoing improvements to North Hobart's vibrant restaurant strip the City of Hobart is carrying out overnight works to repair the deteriorating road surface on Elizabeth Street and nearby Newdegate Street.

This project will create a stronger, longer lasting and safer road surface.

The roadworks began on Sunday 27 March and are expected to be completed by Wednesday 6 April.

Roadworks schedule

  • Sunday 27 March: Overnight road resurfacing on Newdegate Street and road repairs on Elizabeth Street. Parts of Elizabeth and Newdegate streets will be closed to traffic 8.30 pm to 7 am Monday morning.
  • Thursday 31 March to Friday 1 April: Minor roadworks, no road closures but expect some traffic delays overnight.
  • Friday 1 April: Minor roadworks, no road closures but expect some traffic delays overnight.
  • Monday 4 April: Overnight road resurfacing and road repairs on Elizabeth Street. Part of Elizabeth will be closed to traffic 8.30 pm to 7 am Tuesday morning.
  • Tuesday 5 April: Minor roadworks, no road closures but expect some traffic delays overnight.
  • Wednesday 6 April: Minor roadworks, line marking, expect some traffic delays during the day.

Minimising impacts

To minimise the impact on local residents and businesses the overnight roadworks will begin at 8.30 pm and finish at 7 am the next morning. Major roadworks will result in the closure of part of Elizabeth Street on Sunday 27 March and Monday 4 April.

The works will generate some noise but will be carried out in stages to minimise the impact on residents. Noisier machine works will be carried out earlier in the night, and machinery and vehicles will be turned off when not in use.

For safety reasons some road lanes in the vicinity will be closed and there will be a reduced speed limit in place during work hours.

Motorists should allow up to 15 minutes extra travel time if travelling through the area.
