City of Glenorchyto the City of Clarencein the greater area of Hobart, Tasmania. Using the Bowen Bridgethe road travels over the Derwent River in semi-highway road layout. The Road starts 10km north of Hobartnear the Hobart Showgroundon the Brooker Highwayat Glenorchy, from there it travels east past the Elwick Racecourse, over the Bowen Bridgeand connects to the East Derwent Highwayat Otago. While the route the road takes is used far less than other major arterial roads in Hobart, commuters often depend on the road when major incidents occur on other major roads throughout Hobart.
