South Eastern Freeway - Managed Motorway Construction Works

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

What's the project about?

The South Eastern Freeway - Managed Motorway Measures Project, jointly funded by the Australian Government and South Australian Government, is scheduled to commence construction in April 2020.

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.

When will works occur?

The majority of construction works will occur during the day from Monday to Saturday. Citybound (Stirling to Crafers) work hours will be 9:30am to 6pm, and outbound (Crafers to Stirling) work hours will be 6am to 2:30pm, to minimise impacts to road users during morning and afternoon peak times.

Night works will also occur as required between the hours of 7pm and 6am, however at this stage, will not occur on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

Will access to the freeway be impacted?

Access for road users will be maintained with two lanes in each direction, except during some night works when one lane will remain open in each direction.

Speed restrictions of 80km/h during peak periods and 40km/h outside of peak periods will apply. The pedestrian bridge crossing at Crafers will remain open at all times.

When will the project be completed?

The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year, weather permitting.

What other impacts can be expected?

Some noise disturbance and temporary inconvenience from construction activities can be expected at times while these works are completed, however the work will be managed to minimise disruption to properties and road users as much as practically possible.

Your patience and cooperation whilst these important works are undertaken is appreciated.

Motorists are asked to please plan ahead and allow extra travel time, take extra care when workers are on site, and observe speed and lane restrictions and signage when travelling through the area.

    The South Eastern Freeway - Managed Motorway Measures Project, jointly funded (50:50) by the Australian and South Australian governments, is scheduled to undertake works on the Crafers on-ramp on August 24 August, from 6am to 12pm, weather permitting.

    SEE ALTERNATE ROUTE MAP HERE

    The Managed Motorway Measures 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.

    Works on the Crafers on-ramp are required to enable the installation of new LED road lighting and permanent Variable Message Signage.

    To complete these important works safely and efficiently, a closure of the Crafers on-ramp is required, with a temporary detour in place during the works (see map below). Access for trucks will be maintained under traffic control.

    Road users are asked to please plan ahead and allow extra travel time,observe speed limits, lane restrictions, traffic controllers and take extra care when travelling through the area.

    Some noise disturbance can be expected at times while these works are completed, however the work will be managed to minimise disturbance to local residents and businesses as much as practically possible.
