Project Description

This project will implement a managed motorways system for a one kilometre stretch of the South Eastern Freeway between Crafers and Stirling, including hard shoulder running and electronic signs.


The project will improve traffic flow on the freeway and address a key capacity bottleneck. Benefits will be returned through reduced vehicle travel time, reduced vehicle operating costs, reduced crashes, incident delays savings and reduced air pollution (in particular carbon dioxide emissions).


The Australian Government has committed $4.5 million towards this project.


Construction is expected to commence early 2019 and be completed late 2019.
