A North-South freight route upgrade will get more trucks off the congested South Eastern Freeway.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Premier Steven Marshall have made a joint announcement today about the $145 million dollar infrastructure spend.

It is one of 13 “shovel-ready” road safety projects as part of a wider $1.5 billion Federal infrastructure funding boost to create jobs, improve road safety and rebuild Australia’s economy after the COVID-19 shutdown.

The work will likely get underway between now and the end of the year.
