All I can hope is that they install at least 3 lanes in each direction to begin with rather than putting in 2 lanes and then 6 months after “completion” start on the third lane.
I wonder what the rational for the right of way for the road (specifically the median area) being so wide?
The corridor through the reserve is intended to be able to accommodate two full freeways: the current ring road and a future outer ring road (in many years time). The wide median was set aside in order to allow for a further eight lanes to be built there.
