The Tasmanian Government's program to support improved farm and road safety and increased farm productivity across the livestock sector is ongoing. Funding is available for the new financial year for stock underpasses, up to $80,000 in subsidies. Stock Underpass Program | Department of Natural Resources and Environment Tasmania (nre.tas.gov.au)
Moving cattle across roads is a significant issue for many dairy and livestock farmers. The Government has been working with the TFGA and DairyTas, as well as local farmers and councils, to develop a practical approach to address the issue.
There is also additional council opportunities to assist with extra funding. See the Council Map and Contacts | LGA Tasmania
To find a certified contractor that can perform the underpasses see the link Prequalified_Contractors_24_May_2022.pdf (transport.tas.gov.au)
Additionally, if there is opportunity during State Highway upgrades this could be a suitable time to save and utilise their services with the installation of your underpass. See Current road projects – Transport Services
