Major Development Plan – Runway Extension

Extending Hobart Airport’s runway

From small beginnings, the Hobart Airport has grown into a vital part of Tasmanian culture and industry. Extending this vital infrastructure will enable new opportunities for Tasmanians.

The Major Development Plan for the runway extension has been approved by the Commonwealth Minister.  The project will commence initial works for the project in June 2016.
