The Department of Planning, Transport & Infrastructure (DPTI) will be improving safety and traffic flow on the South Eastern Freeway by installing a three lane Managed Motorway between Crafers and Stirling.

The project will involve converting the existing emergency lane into a third travel lane and the implementation of a Managed Motorway on both the up and down tracks of the Freeway.

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 increasing demand of commuter and freight traffic, the section between Crafers and Stirling is heavily impacted during peak periods with increased travel times.

A three lane Managed Motorway will improve safety and traffic flow for the almost 54,000 vehicles which use this section of the freeway each day through the use of Intelligent Transport System. These include variable speed limits and a Lane Use Management system, which will enable the allocation and control of lanes across the freeway.

Main works are expected to commence early 2020, with project completion expected in late 2020.

Frequently asked questions are available on the DPTI Project website.
