Are there any freeway/motorway constructions between Sydney and Brisbane at the moment?
Is there plan for continuous freeway between those cities?
And the last question, what is the daily vehicle count on the quietest stretches?

Is the road from Melbourne to Sydney and Brisbane a freeway? Because when I click on google street view it looks like a 2-way road.

Good to see Google Maps have finally fixed their **** up which meant the Pacific Highway was closed in 2 places...

The road from Sydney to Melbourne is freeway all the way except at Holbrook where it is a 2 lane road way. the Sydney to brisbane road has a fair bit of freeway now but there are still heaps of 2 lane roadway remaining

they're great pics. I always prefer PT to roads, but that's an impressive piece of infrastructure (by Australian standards) right there!

An update on the Melbourne Ring Road upgrade project (M80):

The 38km freeway around Melbourne’s western and northern suburbs is progressing well if slowly. The freeway is not being extended but widened to 3x3 and in the busier sections 4x4. Interchanges such as the Tullamarine Fwy and Sydney Rd are being redesigned and rebuilt.
Works on the first section (Calder Fwy M79 to Sydney Rd state route 55) commenced 2009 and two thirds complete.
The Western section (around Ballarat Rd route 8) is half way complete and the Northern section (between Edgars Rd and Plenty Rd) is just starting now, due completion 2014.

Some more photos – this time of freeway approaches to Melbourne and its inner city


blue crosses mark vantage points



NORTHWEST - Citylink (Tullamarine Fwy) [m2 / state route 43] serves the north-western suburbs and the airport; taken from Ormond Rd


SOUTHWEST - West Gate Fwy [m1] taken just west of Williamstown Rd; the West Gate Bridge is in the background


SOUTHWEST - West Gate Fwy, near the south-western edge of the city, taken with the recently rebuilt interchange with Montague St; and looking outbound with the West Gate Bridge in the background



SOUTHEAST - Citylink (Monash Fwy) [m1] taken from the MacRobertsons Bridge in the suburb of Toorak; the freeway snakes its way through well to do inner south eastern suburbs alongside the Yarra River. Probably not the best location for my theme though as the city skyline is to the right of the picture and blocked by an old factory from my standpoint; the building in the background is the recently completed Vogue in South Yarra


NORTHEAST - Eastern Freeway [m3, formerly state route 83] serves the eastern and north eastern suburbs; taken from Yarra Bend Bridge in Fairfield. This section was built in the 1970s with a big cutting into the hillside; wide enough for a 14 lane freeway, the central median has been kept aside for a possible future (but never been built) Doncaster railway
