The Government says the studies will investigate improvements to major transport corridors across SA.

In a statement, Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Corey Wingard, says the Eyre Highway upgrade planning study will help develop a business case for the costs and benefits of providing access for triple road trains through from the WA border. 

Mr Wingard says this, plus intersection widening in Ceduna and Thevenard and the widening of the Eyre and Lincoln Highways will form part of a connected high productivity heavy freight network.
