Long travel delays will remain for those getting around the West Coast, with a chunk of the Zeehan Highway expected to remain closed until the end of the week.
Following "major landslides" police closed the major road between Anthony Link Road and the Lyell Highway turn off to Strahan on Sunday. Police said it would not reopen for a number of days.
In a statement, the Department of State Growth said a "geotechnical investigation" had been undertaken to "determine the risk and extent of future slips" along the 45 metre stretch of road.
"Contractors are currently working on the best approach to removing the risk with the aim of having one lane reopened to traffic by the end of this week," they said.
"The Department regrets the need to close the highway and is working with its contractors to minimise the disruption and return the road to normal operation as soon as it is safe."
Queenstown's Paragon Theatre owner Joy Chappell said while it was certainly "an inconvenience", people were adapting. For her, that's meant adopting a few new housemates.
"I've got a teacher and a couple of kids staying at my property as they're not wanting to have to leave at 4am or 5am to get to work," she said.
"They're coming from Rosebery so it's easier for them to stay here and not have to travel.
"I know there are miners trying to find other ways to work too. There's certainly been an impact."
Tasmanian Minerals, Manufacturing and Energy Council CEO Ray Mostogl said he'd been in communication with Henty Gold Mine staff and confirmed that workers had been affected.
"It's pretty disruptive," he said, "particularly for Bluestone or anyone that travels towards Henty."
He said work labour hours had been cut from 12 to eight to manage fatigue, to factor in the four hour daily trips some employees were facing as a "temporary fix".
West Coast Mayor Shane Pitt said closures such as this came with the territory in such a wet, wild region.
"Mother nature does these things to us - it's happened before, and no doubt it will happen again," Cr Pitt said.
"There's nothing anyone can really do; we're just happy no one has been injured in this and we've still got an alternate route."
