Bridge Installation - Tasman Highway Closure

The City of Hobart is working with Fulton Hogan – our bridge construction partner – to install a new, all-abilities pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the Tasman Highway to link two of Hobart’s most significant places of remembrance – the Cenotaph and Soldiers Memorial Avenue on the Queens Domain. 

The overall cost of the bridge is $11 million. $8 million is being provided by the Australian Government through the Anzac Centenary Public Fund, with the Tasmanian Government initially underwriting this cost.  The balance of the cost is funded by the City of Hobart.

The Centenary of ANZAC commemorates 100 years of service and sacrifice by Australian service men and women in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations since World War One. 

When a date has been advised for the installation of the bridge and associated road closures an update will be provided on this page.
