Stage 3 precinct upgrade works to improve the safety and accessibility of Salamanca Place are set to commence on 17 July 2023.
The works are the final stage of the City of Hobart's $3.5 million Salamanca Place Precinct upgrade which gives a fresh contemporary feel to the area connecting Salamanca Place to Hobart's waterfront and makes it easier and safer for pedestrians to move around.
After a deliberate pause due to the impacts of COVID and to allow businesses time to recover, the final stage of the works can now get underway and will see a number of improvements.
The works are expected to be completed by November 2023.

The City of Hobart has been upgrading the precinct connecting Salamanca Place to Hobart's waterfront to make it more pedestrian friendly. The area houses major hospitality and retail activity, as well as being home to the Salamanca Market.
The $3.5 million upgrade is being delivered in multiple stages, with Stage 1 and 2 already completed.
The upgrade is part of the Inner City Action Plan which responds to key recommendations from the Gehl Architects Report, Hobart 2010 Public Spaces and Public Life – a city with people in mind. The recommendations aim to attract people and activity into Hobart and to create a vital, dynamic city centre.
