Pinnacle Road maintenance

Pinnacle Road maintenance

The City of Hobart plans to close Pinnacle Road on kunanyi / Mt Wellington for three days as it carries out critical road maintenance leading into the winter.

Pinnacle Road will be closed on Tuesday 29 March as road works begin and is expected to re-open by 8 am 1 April, or sooner if it is safe to do so.

The works will be carried out in two stages:

Days 1-2: Pinnacle Road will be closed at Gate 1 (Bracken Lane, Wellington Park entrance) March 29-30 for road works up to The Springs.

Day 3: Pinnacle Road will be closed at Gate 3 (above The Springs) March 31 for the rest of the closure.

Walking and bike tracks on kunanyi / Mt Wellington, aside from the Zig Zag Track, will remain open, but for safety reasons cyclists and pedestrians will not be allowed on Pinnacle Road where it is closed for maintenance.

Road works will include:

  • storm water works to clear drains and pipes and replace under-road culverts
  • road pavement and road verge repairs
  • guard rail project
  • clearance of roadside vegetation to improve line of sight for drivers.

For any enquiries please contact the City of Hobart on 03 6238 2711.

Always check the City of Hobart's Pinnacle Road status page before heading up the mountain.
