Re: News & Developments: Prospect

There's a huge mountain of dirt being built at this site now, and a pit developing next to it. I wonder how deep they're going to go. Indeed! Seems like a bit of deja vu though, I remember them moving similar amounts of dirt about 10 years ago for the former Palm Grove project BC1DEBCF-7E7F-4D29-B9...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Only one building is left to demo (cnr South/Regency Rd.) Heard a Govt deal is close on the Croydon Kings new home ground. I wonder where all the site offices etc will be set up, maybe around & using the existing clubrooms? They could use the yard on the corner of South Road/Grand Junction where th...

I’m sure the corner won’t be that tight once they get rid of the units and the stone paving place

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

There are only about 6 buildings left to demolish from Pym St to Regency Rd including 2 sets of shops so all the demo should be finished soon. There are signs saying night works commence 26 August so hopefully they are getting straight into it. Service Relocations will be occuring over the next cou...

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

Can imagine cars banked up on Bolivar offramp if the traffic light at Bolivar has a short green light especially during afternoon peak. Whites Road should be extended, then over or under Port Wakefield Road, then a interchange at the Northern Connector. Burton Road (north) and Burton Road (south) s...

The Superway to Salisbury highway off ramp is now open, drove on it this morning.
How many lanes is it?
Just one lane for now, there's still construction going on in what i assume would be the other lane. They could be installing that yellow cladding shown in the renders?

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Demo’s will continue all this year (ie Croydon Kings soccer club has until the end of their season before they need to vacate). I think construction is from early 2020 and take until the end of 2022 for completion. The main job is the overpass. It will be interesting if they assemble a bridge/overp...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I'm probably using the wrong term here but i thought of the Superway as a kinda "proof of concept" should other parts of south road go elevated.

[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...

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

I don't see how you can add extreme limits to someone's land without compensation because you have an unfunded plan in the future to change things maybe. People are allowed to build new houses on their land, that is part of what owning land entitles you to. The owner will be paid market value plus ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Theres been a few Qantas flights operated by a330s recently, is this an increase in capacity or just a substitute for the 737s?
