Former Rennie St Ramps
Exit List Location
Prior to 1999 works on the Princes Fwy, an exit and entrance to Princes Fwy northbound was provided from Rennie St - servicing Shell Pde. These ramps were removed during the works due to low traffic volumes and inability to meet safety requirements. Also removed were the Geelong-bound ramps from Shell Pde / Bell Rd.
