The Tasmanian and Commonwealth Governments have committed $500 million to implement the Midland Highway 10 year action plan. The plan will see works on the Midland Highway taking place at around 30 locations between Hobart and Launceston. Works in some areas have already started, with others not scheduled to be completed until 2025.
Some of the works will require the compulsory acquisition of land, as existing roads are widened or duplicated alongside new link roads being added to the highway.
From our considerable experience in compulsory acquisition, Slater and Gordon can explain the process to you and give you advice to protect your interests.
As soon as your property is affected by a compulsory acquisition, it is very important to get legal advice. Our experience has shown that, with the right advice, the amount of compensation obtained can sometimes be considerably more than first thought. It is important to obtain expert advice on valuation and legal issues so that you are fully aware of your entitlements.
Our work is at no cost to you, as the Acquiring Authority is legally required to pay our costs and we will only seek payment from the Acquiring Authority – not you.
