Truck drivers and their employers will hope travel will become safer on the Albany Highway in Western Australia when passing lanes are built.

The State Government will build nine passing lanes over the next three years.

Transport Minister Dean Nalder says $20.5 million has been allocated for the project.

"Passing lanes offer safer overtaking opportunities and reduce driver frustration," Nalder says.

"This is a major safety initiative that will reduce the potential for crashes on this important road transport link."

The first two-kilometre southbound passing and acceleration lane on Albany Highway at Cranbrook was opened last Christmas.
