So it is a landmark day for Tasmania, for Hobart, and for Australia and I'm very pleased to be here with the Premier and all of our other colleagues of local, state, and federal government to get this done.

Federal, state and local governments have come together on a landmark agreement to bust Hobart congestion and back the fast-growing tourism and science industries that are key to Hobart and Tasmania’s future.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the 10-year $1.43 billion Hobart City Deal would open the city up by tackling congestion bottlenecks, boosting tourism and making the airport a true international gateway, driving scientific investment and creating an extra 720 jobs.

GAVIN PEARCE, LIBERAL CANDIATE FOR BRADDON:  Good morning all and welcome to Somerset on the north west coast of Tasmania on this humid day where we can almost hear the trees growing.
