They should do it while grade separating Brighton Road, rebuild Brighton and Hove Stations and remove Warradale.
Federal government is putting $85.5 million towards the Brighton Road (Hove) level crossing upgrade.

It's hard to believe that they wouldn't include a station as well.

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

I'm in favor of privatising the train network in particular if it is done properly. Remember - privatisation doesn't necessarily mean selling off the assets and allowing the owner to do what they like with prices. Under the model used for the busses, I believe the government owns the busses and infr...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

South Australia’s most ambitious infrastructure project will finally be completed after Prime Minister Scott Morrison pledged a further $1.5 billion for the North-South Corridor. The new promise means tomorrow night’s Federal Budget will include $2.7 billion for the project, which will create a non...

[U/C] Re: [U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I don't think the tunnel idea will stack up as time goes on, although as an idea it does have more ongoing practicality than the piecemeal approach we have to upgrades of the corridor at present. Piecemeal has its benefits though. We can build the road as funding comes through but more importantly ...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Bitumen has gone done on a section of the lowered road near the southern expressway end.

Based on this as well as a recent newsletter I reckon there will be a switch to traffic flowing under flinders drive and Sturt Road (in one direction only) fairly soon.

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Opinion piece in the tiser Before the last state election almost a year ago, both Liberal and Labor pledged they would not introduce toll roads. They were absolutely right. And absolutely wrong. Politically they were right. Toll roads are a political tar baby, a three-lane highway to Opposition. Any...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

DPTI has had billions and billions of dollars in project money over the last 10 years. That money goes a long way towards papering over any inadequacies that the department may have. It would be interesting to see how well it operated in an environment where the project $ had dried up yet the dead w...

Not to many economic purists in this thread. The other benefit to tolls is that the cost is borne by those who are benefiting from it. All else being equal this is the best way to ensure efficiency and that resources are not wasted, because unnecessary or low value trips won't be taken and the roads...

Aidan,

The land acquisition required has been well known for years. Why are you having a whinge now? Darlington is worse.

I'd hate to hear you whinge about the 20 lane North East Link in Melbourne.
I looked this up - looks cool.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Try going from Glenelg to Brighton after about 645pm - it takes between 40 and 70 mins it's 5km and there's no direct bus service at night the 265 terminates in Somerton Park after 645pm. It's quicker to walk then take half the options Google gives you, it would take about an hour to walk. This is ...
