General Information:

B55 is a connector route linking 2 somewhat important Murray River towns - Berri and Murray Bridge. It's rural road standard for the most part, and the section from Murray Bridge East to the Princes Hwy (South East Fwy) (M1) at Murray Bridge, is what was once part of the Princes Hwy.

In 2006, Loxton Waikerie Council joined a push to have the B55 route named as Karoonda Highway. 2
