The project will convert the existing emergency lane into a third full time travel lane and implement a Managed Motorway on both the up and down tracks of the South Eastern Freeway between Crafers and Stirling.
The three lane Managed Motorway will include an Intelligent Transport System, with variable speed limits and a Lane Use Management system.
This will enable the allocation and control of lanes across the freeway to improve safety and traffic flow.
The South Eastern Freeway is the most direct corridor between Adelaide and Melbourne, as well as providing a vital link in moving freight between eastern and central Australia.
With the current demand of commuter and freight traffic, the section between Crafers and Stirling is heavily impacted during peak periods with increased travel times.
This project is expected to support approximately 35 full-time equivalent jobs over the life of the project
This project is jointly funded by the Australian and South Australian Governments.
