[U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

That bridge will be demolished after existing movements are transferred onto the new southbound carriageway in what looks like will be a temporary 2-way format and onto new ramps. Not only will the existing bridge be redundant, the future eastbound carriageway of the Port River Expressway will be re...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

There's enough width on the southbound bridge over Marion Road to support an additional lane and also onward to the Reynella exit using existing shoulder/emergency stopping lane space and operating that section of road carriageway as a managed motorway. This will be done on a section of Kwinana Free...

Re: News & Discussion: Road Issues & Traffic Congestion

An amusing read but I note no mention of the Superway structure towering over the top at South Road. The decoration in the design was perhaps not in keeping with the overall tone of the article.

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

The Bolivar Road interchange looks like an attempt to integrate two main objectives, a free-flowing trumpet design with a northbound exit/entry to the OTR fuel stop.

Re: News & Discussion: Transport Projects

I wonder if the state Libs went to their federal counterparts asking for part funding for the bypass and the feds said no hence the cheaper option of the CCH overpass over the existing PWR. I note the render shows 2-lanes in each direction for PWR under the bridge but the impression I get is that ex...

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

Page 47 shows the bridge elements being built as part of the current project. The Globe Derby interchange bridge isn't one of the nine highlighted.

The GD interchange is a future design element that's not part of the current build.
