Darlington upgrade project
The next stage of North-South Corridor to be upgraded is the 2.3km section of road between the Southern Expressway and Ayliffes Road at Darlington.
The Australian and State Governments have committed $620 million in total towards the construction of the Darlington Upgrade Project.
The key element of the project is a new lowered road on the western side of South Road that will allow non-stop flow of traffic from the Southern Expressway to the Ayliffes Road intersection with South Road.
The project is still in the planning phase and further information will be posted when available. In the meantime for further information:
