    Thanks Granny.  :thankyou:  :yes:  Yes, the east coast between the Great Dividing range & the Pacific Ocean can be very hilly indeed. The only areas where the land is, often, very flat is in the river valleys' floodplains of the Northern Rivers where we live, but they can also have hills.

    As for the truck run-off escape lanes, yes we do have them, especially on this particular motorway/highway. Many, elsewhere, were built years ago & some are rather overgrown now but still ready for use if necessary.    :luck:   Hopefully that is a good sign. Most long haul trucks we see on the highways, especially B Doubles are rather new & there is truck inspection stations along the highways which, occasionally, inspect all trucks. They are also subject to spot checks at depots which makes them more aware of keeping their trucks well maintained. Not that there aren't truck accidents because there are.  :grr:

    :smile:  Thanks,  I like mountains.  Really not sure why I thought it would be flat. :lol3:

    Probably all the tourist advertising featuring inland Australia & movies done in the outback, Granny. Australia is still a flattish country, all worn down by millennia of erosion, as it is the oldest block of dirt on the planet.   :laugh:
