Council works in progress
The Launceston City Council is responsible for the municipality's urban and rural road network. Wet weather and unforeseen circumstances can change the start date of work and alter the programmed duration.
While these roads are being graded and gravelled, traffic management will be by signage and stop/go personnel. There are no plans to close these roads:
Burns Creek Road, Blessington
Ben Lomand Road, Upper Blessington
Camden Road (Blessington Road to Ben Nevis Road)
Mussellboro Road, Blessington

A drain is being constructed along the entire length of Ernest Street. The work is expected to be completed by mid September 2014.

Between Lindsay Street and Gleadow Street, the footpath is being widened and will become a shared way. The work is expected to start early September 2014 for around two weeks.

This section of road is being upgraded. Motorists are asked to drive with care and pay attention to all directional signage which includes speed limit changes.
West Tamar Road
Beginning late August/early September 2014 is the construction of a 2.4metre wide asphalt shared pedestrian/bicycle path. The shared way begins at the access way to Tamar Marine and the Tamar Rowing Club and extends for approximately 160 metres towards the city. During the construction period, there are no planned traffic disruptions.

As a result of the recent heavy rains, drains are being repaired and culverts constructed across some driveways. Near No. 266 Windermere Road, a drain will be installed across the road. Just off John Lees Drive, the open drain will be repaired and rock lined. Traffic is being managed by temporary traffic lights which are operational during working hours only.
