Construction crews have commenced work on the South Eastern Freeway Managed Motorway Measures Project in South Australia.


The project will include the existing emergency lane being upgraded into a third full-time transit lane. This will provide an additional city-bound lane and outbound thoroughfares between the suburbs of Crafers and Stirling to ease public transport congestion and travel times.


In addition, the state government has also committed to install Intelligent Transport Systems, LED lighting, whilst simultaneously upgrading shoulders, modifying existing ramps, and improving safety barriers.


Being the main connecting roadway between Adelaide and Melbourne, the South Eastern Freeway provides a crucial freight link between the cities.


The Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Corey Wingard, commented that the project will improve safety and traffic flow for approximately 50,000 vehicles that use the section of the freeway each day.


“We want to deliver a road network that gets commuters home to their families faster but also safely,” He said.


“No one wants to sit in traffic when they could be spending more time with their loved ones and that’s why we’re spending billions on projects that will help bust congestion across the city.”


A Lane Use Management System will also be installed to better manage traffic and alert motorists to incidents.


Major works are set to be finished later this year with testing and official commissioning to take place at the start of 2021, COVID-19 restrictions pending.
