Would a roundabout work here?
It's far too busy for a roundabout

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

I wonder if they will divert trafiic across the waterloo corner interchange and then up the NC northbound carriageway when they do the roadworks to connect the southbound carriageway of NEXY to the NC and\or complete the overpass for northbound traffic on Pt Wakefield Rd. https://i.imgur.com/AMXiz1...

I'd like to see Park Terrace go underneath the railway line - a long box culvert should do the trick.
I'd rather they elevate the line from Kings Road to Commercial Road and kill 3 level crossings in one go. The ARTC line being there makes it a bit harder though

Says $61m on the Govt website for the Cross Roads part.

Still no detail as to why.
Gallipoli Underpass cost $118M ten years ago.
which is $145m in todays dollars

Re: Shift Hindmarsh Stadium into the city

Move the Entertainment center into the Sir Samuel Way building on Victoria Square with an underground train station when the city loop is done. We'd have our own Madison Square Garden

[U/C] Re: Oaklands Crossing | $174m

Am I missing something, how does the Oaklands Crossing cause any disruption to the Tonsley line? To give my 2 cents worth three weeks to connect in the new rail is ridiculous. What part of it can possibly take that long that can't be done prior while the existing line is still open? They'll need to...

How about servicing the area with a new interchange at Grand Junction instead of trying to shoehorn as many people into Paradise as possible

[PRO] Re: [PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

Surely it is not worthwhile to run a train (Grange) for 4 stops with a bloody great golf course in the middle? Time to force the sale of the golf course and turn it into a TOD We need more open space and more greenery in Adelaide, not less. It helps suburban cooling and provides open space for recr...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

I was told by a bus driver that the latest buses are played around with, it makes them more economical but bit gutless, hence they crawl up South Eastern Freeway and Southern Expressway they're geared to accelerate fast in stop start traffic, not cruise at a high speed. That's why they scream on th...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

Two Wells and Virginia will be where the growth happens (where it is already happening).. And they're both already on a rail corridor. Build a new passenger line following the ARTC line from Salisbury to Two Wells or even extend it to Mallala There are no services out there, no public transport He ...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

Maybe I am out of step with "modern thinking". I think we'd be better off if Elizabeth, Mount Barker, Stirling, Reynella, Noarlunga had stayed as regional centres rather than becoming predominantly dormitories for people working in Adelaide. There are a lot more populous cities in the world with mu...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Also I am obviously an infrequent user, however I would suggest the reason the narrowing of the superway to 2 lanes at GJR is not causing issues at present is because it is rarely very busy now. Things will change dramatically when it connects on to the Northern connector, and I reckon this pinch p...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

From a regional development perspective, I'm not sure we want commuters travelling to Adelaide from Mount Barker and Murray Bridge anyway. It would be much better to encourage employment in those towns so that people who live there can be employed there, and the kids in the schools there expect to ...
