The Adelaide Crafers Highway Project

The Adelaide-Crafers Highway, South Australia’s largest road project, provides first-class driving conditions for heavy freight operators and regular commuters and is a magnificent gateway to the city from the eastern States.

The total project cost of $151 million was funded by the Federal Government under the National Highways program, resulting in many benefits to road users and the community.

Opened by the Prime Minister on 5th of March 2000, this new section of the Princes Highway traverses the western escarpment of the Mt Lofty Ranges descending 430 metres within a distance of 10km. The new route sweeps through dense bushland, deep gullies and steep hills.

The highway also features the Heysen Tunnels, the first twin-tube tunnels on the National Highway.
