M5Traffic Set to Ease as New Lanes Opened

m5We all know the M5 traffic is a nightmare but with the first stage of the M5 West Widening Project opening soon, motorists will hopefully get a reprieve from the heavy traffic.

The first stage of the $400 million project opens in a fortnight, New South Wales Premier Mike Baird and Roads Minister Duncan Gay announced recently, hopefully getting road-users home earlier.

They say the extra third lane in sections of east and westbound carriageways will boost the capacity of the M5 West by 50 per cent, so people will have to spend less time stuck in traffic.

The project is now 80 per cent complete, according to Mr Baird and is already expected to cut down travel times.
