Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

SYDNEY is notorious for its traffic jams and congestion, but a study has revealed it isn’t the country’s slowest-moving city — Adelaide has taken the crown with an average peak hour speed of 54.3km/h. According to a new report commissioned by the NRMA, Sydney came in second slowest, with motorists ...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I don't see why it needs to be a bored tunnel. Essentially what they're doing is putting a road beneath a road, so why not a cut and cover tunnel? Because we'd want any freeway grade road along there to be wider than Portrush Road currently is. Doing that you'd need to acquire property on one side ...

I know of a person who aquired land for a development, but it was the compulsory aquired. They paid him what the land was valued at, not my he thought the land was worth as a development site. I can only wonder at the cost of aquiring land along the eastern corridor of Portrush road would be though...

Re: Clipsal 500

Wouldn't the heat be an issue in January? I'm surprised the national body are considering motorsport in the height of summer. 35 deg. days in March are one thing, but low 40's in January, under the most intense sun and uv? Then the drivers will be requiring the race be run in the evening...then the...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

At some point it will be worth breaking out the popcorn to watch the stoush between the southern and eastern suburbs when they each want the other to host a nice new freeway through their heritage. :lol: Why do people like you have to be an arsehole about it? I would love to see your property that ...

I thought there was suppose to be a 6 star luxury hotel being built on that spot
That was an idea touted by Hamilton Smith.

God I hope they have some sort of secret new MATS plan they're working from and aren't just winging it as the political winds blow.

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

That proposal is just stupid and lazy. Besides it ignoring the two uni buildings as mentioned already, it ignores the fact there's ample space to the left. What, does it need to line up at 90 degree angles with the morphett bridge does it? You aren't going to fit soccer in with the 'court' sports. I...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Flight paths and the quickest line you can draw on google maps are two different things. Adelaide to Prague varies a couple hundred dollars between Qatar and Singapore, and a stop over or two. It all depends who you want to fly with and what you want to support. That aside, I’d much rather fly with ...

Both northbnd and southbnd there seem to be adequate directions. What's missing?
Signage in the motorway it self? Unless I’ve missed it.
