The opening of an essential piece of Coastal highway infrastructure has once again been delayed. RoadsTas had intended to open the westbound lane of the new bridge to traffic from 7am Thursday, December 7. But in a post on Facebook, the organisation said the "planned traffic move on to the new bridge has been delayed". They said contractors had found further work needed to be completed to the road base before it can be sealed, and apologised for any inconvenience. "We will let the community know when we have a new date for the move," the post said. "We appreciate the community's understanding and patience while we work towards completing this project."
