[AUS] Australia | road infrastructure

This is Sydney's newest Motorway which links together the 3 existing motorways that sprawl out into Sydney's western suburbs.

How come it only has 2 lanes each way?
I would have thought in a large city like Sydney, it would have at least 3 each way.

Good old NSW 2 lane freeways. I don't know why, but NSW insists on building 2 lane roads despite the fact that this is a city of 4 million+ people.

Freeways here in Victoria are bigger and there is more of them. Also our hard shoulders are wider!

Melbourne is a bore my dick. You've never been outside Dydney so you wouldn't have a clue.

M7 has no toll booth oh no shit mate. It's the ED, WD, M2, SHB Warringah freeway that have booths. Melbourne has mastered electronic tolling in 1999.

Not only is it just 2 lanes but it looks like it would be near impossible to ever expand it.

Everyone this is an example the typical Melbournian with a massive inferiority complex.

They are very jealous people.

The M7 is not a high volume road. Most users use it only for short distances. The M5 and M4 both have more than 2 lanes each way.

First of all, the WD and Warringah aren't tolled! Get your facts right! SHB and ED are only tolled inbound! Bloody Hell. And besides, they're being changed over to electronic tolling and besides, it's a lot easier to start by building a fully tolled road

It's better that the motorways are 2 lanes. It encourages fewer people onto the road network and forces more onto public transport. The toll booths are worse, but the smaller motorways are better.
