I'm no freeway-advocating super zealot but yeah the M5 east is a travesty and far too narrow considering it serves:I will also agree with the M5 East as the worst freeway in Australia. It wasn't even designed to cope with the large volume of traffic that was to use it. Only 2 lanes in each direction.
It's always congested and the pollution is always visible inside.
And the Pacific Highway is also at the top of my list between Hexham and the QLD border.
Oh man guess what I saw that they've done on the M2 last night. The speed limit westbound is now 80 from the LCT to just past the toll both, where it reduces to 70 km'h just before the Epping tunnel. You wouldn't believe it but they've just installed a 70 km'h fixed speed camera just before you go through the Epping tunnel.^^ Yes the Pacific Highway is an abysmal joke.
The carpark that is the M2 is crap.
I also have to commend workers for shutting down the M5 east the other night ... nice of them to actually give warning getting dumped in the south western suburbs with no warning was very annoying.
Most of our freeways and highways are shit. Our infrastructure is an embarrasment to our country.
