Not nearly enough variable speed limit signs. I only count 24. How are we expected to know the speed limit when there's only 12 signs?

That bridge is worth the money you have to give to drive over it.

Three photos from the Dandenong Ranges just outside Melbourne. These were taken a few months ago the weather today is not quite as nice.

The train in the first photo is 'Puffing Billy".

Awesome bridge!! although i gotta admit i think it was abit of a waste widening it coz they really didnt need too! they focus too much on roads around brisbane and the gold coast. they need to focus more on regional Qld roads especially around north Qld. e.g the bruce hwy that could definately use with a bit of a fix!!

The roads up here are terrible. One smash on the Southern Access Road into Cairns in morning rush hour and commuters have absolutely no alternative for getting in to town. Any heavy rain and we're cut off from the rest of the country! Modest upgrades are underway or recently completed but are a far cry from what is needed.

exactly what i mean!! even though i live in Nsw and i know the roads here arent that great either, i do hope queensland gets a few billion dollars worth of money for road/rail infrastructure like Nsw recently did in may. nsw won a $2.2 billion dollar for roads and rail and more than half of that money is going to regional roads!! queenslands roads(apart from brissy and the gold coast) are all a disgrace!! so i hope that when Qld gets its next share of road money, most of it will go to regional roads

These 3 pictures are of Calder Fwy/Hwy (M79) between Melbourne and Bendigo in Victoria. It is only recently that the Calder has become fully duplicated between Melbourne and the suburbs of Bendigo with the completion of Malmsbury, Harcourt and Ravenswood sections. Bendigo is the third or fourth largest city in Victoria founded during the goldrush of the 1850s.

These 3 pictures are of the Geelong Ring Road, part of the Princes Hwy West (M1) between Melbourne, Geelong, Warnambool and to Adelaide via the coast. The Geelong Ring Road stages I, II, III opened a few years ago and the city of Geelong is now effectively bypassed. However they are extending the Geelong Bypass (stage IV) that takes the freeway south of Geelong, around the outlying suburb of Waurn Ponds and curve to the west to meet the Princes Hwy and continue onto Colac and Warnambool. Stage IV is currently under construction and also includes a link between Ring Road and the Surfcoast Hwy (B100 to Torquay). Project information can be found here:
http://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/Home/...ngRingRoad.htm and http://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/Home/...Winchelsea.htm

Geelong is the second largest city in Victoria and is only 75km from Melbourne. It sits on the western side of Port Phillip Bay.

Is it Ravenswood or Ravenswood South?

What a huge dividing line on that picture! It looks approximately 17-20 m broad. Is it foreseen for future extencions?

I doubt. There wasn't much traffic between Melbourne and Bendigo when I drove there.

This is not particularly unusual in Australia and is commonly found on country freeways.

We're fortunate enough to have the space to do it I suppose...
