The single-largest component of the Perth bypass will be discussed at two public information sessions on Wednesday.
Shaw and VEC Contracting will hold a community drop in session about the $500 million project.
A public notice, published in The Examiner on Saturday, November 3 said the project is already underway.
“The VEC Shaw partnership has already commenced construction of the project that will see significant economic benefits, including up to 200 people working on the project at its peak, and further opportunities for local businesses to partner of the project,” it said.
“Come and find out more about the project, employment and partnership opportunities at a community drop-in.”
The sessions will be held at the Perth Primary School Hall, at 181 Fairtlough Street on Wednesday, November 7.
The first session will be held from 2.30pm until 4pm and another at 5.30pm until 7.30pm.
Stage two of the project will divert heavy vehicles and highway traffic around the Perth towncentre, reduce traffic noise and congestion for the Perth community, and improve travel times along the Midland Highway, Federal Infrastructure and Transport Minister Michael McCormack said earlier this year.
The investment aims to continue the Midland Highway 10-year Action Plan, helping the state government achieve its targets to reduce serious injuries on Tasmanian roads to zero by 2050, and to increase investment in public infrastructure by 20 per cent in the next four years.
Stage one of the bypass – Breadalbane to Perth – was opened in about April this year.
