Current Projects

Council simultaneously undertakes many projects throughout the municipality. Below is a snapshot of what we're currently working on and expected timelines for completion.

Windsor Park Dog Exercise Area
The dog exercise area at Windsor Park is being upgraded. Current works include new fencing and spreading of fill, with new seating and shelter to be installed in the future.

Auburn Road - Road Reconstruction
The Road surface on Auburn Road is being reconstructed, and drainage is being improved. Works are due to be completed in March 2020.

Pomona Road, Riverside Roundabout Upgrade
The roundabout on the intersection of Pomona Road and Tamar Rise in Riverside will be upgraded.

Sewage Intrusion Program
West Tamar Council and City of Launceston are participating in a program funded by NRM North to improve the health of the Tamar Estuary.

The primary objective is to identify instances of sewage in the urban stormwater systems. Paneltec, as authorised officers of the West Tamar Council, undertook inspections of stormwater systems throughout Trevallyn and Riverside from July until November 2019. They have now moved into Newstead, but may return to the West Tamar at a later date. Inspections may be undertaken on private property but Paneltec employees can produce Council identification cards upon request.

Any enquires, please contact Council’s Engineer on 03 6323 9300.

Rosevears Drive, Lanena, Kerb and Footpath Construction
The tender for Rosevears kerb and footpath construction stages 3 and 4 has been awarded and work has begun.

Gray Street Road Reconstruction
Following stormwater upgrades on Gray Street in 2019, a reconstruction of the road is now being undertaken.

Road Reseal Program
The tender for our Annual Road Reseal Program has been awarded and will be starting in March 2020.

Riverside Stormwater Works
Riverside stormwater works on Balmoral Avenue and Penrith Street.

Following on from the Stage 1 Stormwater upgrade completed in Riverside Drive and Rannoch Avenue, Council through its contractor Zanetto Civil Pty Ltd, have been undertaking Stage 2 of the major stormwater upgrade in Balmoral Avenue and Penrith Street.

Final rendering of man holes is currently being completed.

This work is important as it will ultimately reduce the frequency of properties flooding after a large storm event.
