Declaration of Major Project – New Bridgewater Bridge

The Minister for Planning has declared the proposed New Bridgewater Bridge a major project under section 60O of the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993.

The project known as the New Bridgewater Bridge Project, is intended to replace the existing 2 lane Midland Highway connection between Bridgewater and Granton with a 4 lane connection (2 in each direction).

The declaration came into effect on 23 December 2020.

The proposal is now subject to an assessment process coordinated by the Tasmanian Planning Commission.
