Campbell and Liverpool Street Road Closures

The managing contractor will shortly commence critical works to prepare for the construction of RHH Redevelopment’s new ten-storey inpatient precinct.

Power, water and gas services on Campbell Street will be realigned so they can connect to K-Block.

The RHH Redevelopment is a massive construction project in Hobart’s CBD. Whether it is going to a new location for a ward or traffic conditions, there will be many changes during construction.

We appreciate the patience and support of the community during the project.

Detailed information is now available on works which will occur in sections of Campbell and Liverpool Streets.
