[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

Looks like new traffic light just north of Regency Road intersection (by one of those industrial area streets) and one on the coopers corner.

[COM] Re: [COM] Re: M2 Northern Connector | 15.5km | $867m

There's an on ramp heading north and an off ramp heading south, immediately north of the cross over of port road. Thats it. Getting on or off just before the brickworks is not an off/on ramp for port road. Three major arterials that dont have on/off access in both directions thats pretty poor. I’d ...

It's likely that the lighter patches were completed months before opening whereas the darker patches were completed just before opening.

With the Target gone I wonder how this changes the Aldi plans? Wouldn’t make much sense to build when you have a huge vacant space next door.

As expected, construction continues on this site today despite Kaufland pulling the pin.
Actually the building is being dismantled. Steel frame has been removed leaving just the precast walls propped up.

I wonder when Google maps will update with the road?
I looked into this, unless DPTI is a member of Google’s Base Map Partner Program, not a lot will happen until Google’s algorithms draw the new route. For example with t2t it took a few weeks to be properly formed in maps.

Can someone please explain the arrangement with service centres in context of the Northern Connector? Did the Government deem it necessary that at some point along the NC there should be a fuel stop, with the easiest way of achieving this designing the off ramp to go right past the OTR? or Did Pereg...

Thinking outside the square, was it ever considered to split the N-S route to reduce the footprint and potentially land acquisition costs? Example: Southbound 3 lanes trench/cut and cover from T2T to Tonsley - Following South road alignment Northbound 3 lanes trench/cut and cover from Darlington to ...
