[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Surprised to read on comments here some sections are 2 lanes only heading north? I really think this will bite them in the not too distant future.

Many of those residents will catch the train to the City for say school, tafe, university, AFL matches at Adelaide Oval, Cricket at Adelaide Oval, or Boxing Day Sales etc. Many of those residents...
