West Hobart Pedestrian Safety Project

The City of Hobart has been undertaking improvement works on Hill Street to make West Hobart safer for all road users. New pedestrian crossings and bike lanes are included in the project. The project is estimated to be completed in early 2019 and involves:

  • the construction of five new pedestrian crossings, including a six-month trial of a raised ‘wombat’ crossing on Hill Street, immediately north of Pine Street
  • the marking of uphill bicycle lanes between Cavell Street and Hamilton Street
  • improvements to Bus Stop 18 on Hill Street near Hamilton Street, including seating and a new bus ‘platform’.
