Overtaking lanes: a case study of the South Gippsland Highway

Simulation models were used to investigate the performance of overtaking lanes on a section of the South Gippsland Highway 60 to 80 km from Melbourne, Victoria. The effect of location of the overtaking lane on the road section was found to be minor. The benefits of single and multiple overtaking lane proposals were compared with the options of sight distance improvement and full duplication of the road. It was demonstrated that overtaking lanes are a highly cost effective method for the improvement of this road, providing substantial travel time savings and increased service capacity (a).
