General Information:

In the Tasmanian State Road Hierarchy brochure, the route comes under Category 5 - Other Road, which suggests its a minor route. A section of the route is unsealed.

The Ross Bridge is a major feature in the town of Ross, and was constructed by convict labour and opened in 1836, and is the third oldest bridge still in use in Australia. The bridge crosses the Macquarie River. 1
