Traffic restrictions

Works after opening to two-way traffic

Some construction activities will continue following opening of the expressway to two-way traffic, including interchange ramp road works, activation of the new two-way electronic signage system, landscaping, fencing, construction of the new western recreational pathway and noise barrier installation. This work will require some lane restrictions, weekend closures and closures outside of peak periods. Whilst the expressway interchanges will be operational, they will be subject to temporary traffic restrictions and speed reductions.

Please see the list below for works that will be undertaken after the expressway is opened to two-way traffic. Speed limits of 40kph will apply through all interchanges for a short period following opening of the expressway to two-way traffic.
