Starting on Monday (2 Nov), contractors will be working to remove the hedge along Wilmot Road, Huonville. This will take about two weeks to complete.
Please be mindful to slow down, be patient and comply with all signs and instructions from staff when travelling through the work sites.
The hedge is being removed as it has long been the site of anti-social behaviour, arson attacks (fire) which have damaged the hedge, and the littering of dangerous debris such as broken glass. Council made this decision with the support of Tasmania Police (Huonville), local committees, sports clubs and Huonville High School.
Fencing and landscaping works will take place after the hedge is removed. Following feedback from the community, the type of tree originally selected in the plan has been replaced with non-deciduous Evergreen Alder (Alnus jorullensis).
