The South Eastern Freeway Managed Motorway project converted the existing emergency lane on the freeway between Stirling and Crafers into a third full time travel lane and implemented a Managed Motorway.
The three lane Managed Motorway includes LED lighting and an Intelligent Transport System, with variable speed limits and a Lane Use Management system.
Other works in the project included road shoulder widening, modifications to existing ramps, median construction, improved drainage, safety barrier, new central concrete safety median barrier, kerbing, line marking and asphalt works.
The South Eastern Freeway is the most direct corridor between Adelaide and Melbourne providing a vital link in moving freight between eastern and central Australia.
The project supported approximately 35 full-time equivalent jobs over the life of the project and was jointly funded by the Australian and South Australian Governments.
