Excavation works have begun

Additional signage is now in place.
August 26, 2019

Excavation works in our Main Car Park are underway, with additional hoarding and signage now in place to help direct traffic and pedestrians through our changing road network.

We have implemented clear wayfinding signage with two distinct colours to help drivers navigate their way through the construction work.  

If you’re looking for a car park, follow the pink parking signs and when you’re ready to leave, follow the blue exit signs to navigate your way out.

An additional entry point to our Main Car Park has now been opened and can be accessed by making a right turn off Holyman Avenue on to Gatty Street.

Alternatively, drivers can enter the main boom gate on Holyman Avenue and follow the pink parking signs.

Speed limits are subject to change throughout the works and must be adhered to in order to maintain a safe and secure environment for all airport users.

We urge all drivers to be mindful of and always give way to pedestrians when using our parking facilities.

If you are planning to park at Hobart Airport, we recommend arriving early to ensure you have time to navigate our changing road system.

Camera traps are also used to monitor the movements and better understand the behaviour of animals in the airport environment.  

Since the installation of camera traps in early 2016, images collected have shown that many threatened species use the environment around and within the airport boundary including the Tasmanian Devil, the Spotted quoll and the Tasmanian bettong.

We recognise our role in protecting the biodiversity of the airport and Tasmania more broadly and are confident this technology will assist us in doing so.

Initial testing of virtual fencing devices in Tasmania has seen a 50 per cent reduction in road kill deaths over a three-year period and has been instrumental in protecting the remaining Tasmanian Devil population.

The virtual fencing will be monitored by Hobart Airport’s environment team to capture and report data on the rates of roadkill deaths in the area and better understand the behaviour of the animals that call the airport home.
