Holyman Avenue Lighting

Completed January 2020
Project Status:
In Progress
To Begin

Works to replace the current lighting to LED lighting along Holyman Avenue are set to begin early in the New Year.

As the main roadway connecting Hobart Airport to the Tasman Highway and a high traffic area, we are working to improve the efficiency and safety of the road for all users.

We expect the impact of the works on the public to be minimal, however those planning to use Holyman Avenue during this period are asked to drive with caution and be prepared for minor delays.

The LED lighting will see a significant reduction in our power consumption, helping the business move closer to a level 3 Carbon Accreditation.

Aircraft at Hobart Airport have previously performed power in/power out operations meaning they used their own power and thrust to enter and exit the parking bays. This project sees a move to power in/push back operations in which aircraft use their own power to park in the bays and are pushed backwards out of the gate by a specialised ground vehicle.

The increase in bays will allow the airport to better accommodate off schedule arrivals and departures, and decrease the likelihood of flight delays due to an unserviceable aircraft occupying a parking bay.

The additional bays will also provide provisions for the appropriate infrastructure to park and service international aircraft, bringing Hobart Airport a step closer to offering international opportunities by the end of 2020.
