Hazell Bros Awarded $32 million Brooker Highway Upgrade Contract

CCF Tasmania is pleased to advise that CCF member and Tasmanian Civil Contractor, Hazell Bros, has been awarded the Elwick Rd/ Brooker Hwy realignment contract after what is believed to be a very competitive tender process.

This is fantastic news not only for people who drive through Hobart’s northern suburbs on a regular basis, but Hazell Bros’ workforce and suppliers. Works are expected to get underway in January, with the project anticipated to take approximately 18 months to complete.

The two adjacent intersections at Elwick Rd and Goodwood Rd will become one intersection, and the nearby Howard Rd roundabout will be replaced with traffic lights, synchronized with those at the Elwick Rd intersection. These works are expected to measurably reduce travel time through the area.
