The new northbound on-ramp to Mitchell Freeway from Reid Highway is now open. Along with the new bridge, this ramp will significantly improve traffic flow. Traffic heading west can follow the inside lane around the new loop and directly onto the freeway, allowing road users to enjoy free-flowing traffic conditions. All landscaping works are now complete.

Traffic lights at the intersection of Duffy Road South and Reid Highway are providing a safe option for motorists wanting to turn east off Duffy Road South. A dedicated left turn into Reid Highway (westbound) and two right turn lanes heading east have also been constructed.
The right turning lanes at the intersection of Reid Highway and Erindale Road have been extended to improve traffic flow at the intersection.
The duplication works have provided additional lane capacity to improve safety and operational efficiencies in the area, and forms part of the long term plan to upgrade the highway to a six lane freeway east of Mitchell Freeway, and a four lane highway to the west.
Construction involved duplication of approximately 2.2 kilometres of the highway and a new bridge over Mitchell Freeway.

Community engagement on the Reid Highway Duplication - Duffy Road to Erindale Road section commenced in November 2013 with the distribution of the first
Project Newsletter to surrounding communities.
Following distribution of the first newsletter, we received additional queries about the project. Consequently, we have developed a set of
Frequently Asked Questions for this section to provide a greater understanding of the project. Additionally, a
concept plan is also available.
