The Olympic Highway interchange connecting Cowra and Albury in New South Wales, Australia, has been opened to traffic.

The interchange, which is part of $950m Hume Highway duplication project, will improve safety at its major intersections. It also eliminates the vehicles turning at high speeds.

The project work mainly included construction of a 5km road that duplicated the existing highway, from south of the Olympic Highway interchange to Table Top.

The highway also segregates the northbound and southbound traffic between Victoria and the Olympic Highway Interchange.

The 67km of the Hume Highway duplication project will provide enhanced travel conditions for the road freight industry and local commuters.

The work on $179m Coolac Bypass, which is also a part of Hume Highway Duplication project, will be completed shortly.
