Old Princes Highway & Callington Road (Alternate National Route 1) (Decommissioned)

Route Numbering:

General Information:

Highway 1 runs right around Australia. Over the years, National Route 1 has taken on many routes and variations, often with some old alignments renumbered as ALT-NR1.

The Princes Highway links Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. The highway was first proclaimed from Sydney to Melbourne in the 1920s, it was later extended through western Victoria and eventually to Adelaide.

The Old Princes Highway alignment between Murray Bridge and Callington was superseded by the South Eastern Freeway (Princes Highway). The old route was renumbered to ALT-NR1 and more or less much as it did back when the freeway opened.
