What is a contraflow system?

A contraflow also known as contraflow lane reversal, are plans that alter the normal flow of traffic, usually in controlled access highways like motorways. This is done by reversal of lanes which are normally configured for travel in one direction. In summary, it is the implementation of a two-way traffic system on one side of a highway/dual carriageway, usually implemented during emergencies or road maintenance.
