Yellow lines on Northern Connector as part of safety trial

Wednesday, 16 June 2021

New yellow line marking will be installed on a two kilometre section of the Northern Connector as part of a trial to increase safety and visibility.

Yellow lines will be marked on a section of the northbound carriageway between Bolivar Interchange and Waterloo Interchange.

The works will be undertaken on Sunday, 20 June 2021, between 9am and 6pm (weather permitting).

Speed restrictions, signage and traffic management will be in place in the section of the line marking works.

Please take extra care when workers are on site. Observe speed limits, signage and lane restrictions and traffic controllers when travelling through the area.

The yellow lines are part of a trial by the Department for Infrastructure and Transport (the Department) to determine the most effective line marking option for the concrete road.

This follows the initial review of the black contrasting line marking which was installed on the Northern Connector around the existing white lines in early April 2021.

The Department encourages road users and community members to submit feedback on the visibility of the line marking as part of the trials.

This feedback will assist in the Department determining the best long-term line marking solution for both carriageways of the motorway.

To provide feedback regarding the trial, complete the feedback form at or contact the Project Information Line on 1300 794 880.

The Department thanks you for your patience while these important works are being undertaken.
