Greens push Two Valleys link

A SEALED forestry road linking the Huon and Derwent valleys would create a 140km visitor loop and inject valuable tourism dollars into regional Tasmania, the Greens said today.

Rosalie Woodruff, the party's federal candidate for Franklin, has called for a federally funded feasibility study into linking New Norfolk and Huonville and forming a three-hour round trip around Mt Wellington.

She said the project would not only create jobs through construction and tourism but provide a more economic route for the transport of produce for the agriculture, aquaculture and viticulture industries.

Bike lanes facilitating multiple-day rides would also be a key component of the Two Valleys Tourist Drive, said Dr Woodruff, who is taking on Labor incumbent and Cabinet minister Julie Collins for the southern Tasmania seat at the upcoming election.

"This 140km drive would highlight the Derwent and Huon valleys by giving Hobart-based tourists a scenic circuit that encapsulates much of Tasmania's diversity of attractions," Dr Woodruff said.

"It includes wild mountain and forest scenery, riverside farmlands and excellent opportunities to sample the region's foods, wines and heritage.

"At the moment the forestry roads are just sitting there, and are a missed opportunity."
