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

Below is the photo from the 29 July 2019 article in the advertiser. It appears to be about 2 months old and generated from commercial aerial photography .. so much for the "exclusive". Still a lot of work to do. I don't think they will be opening it ahead of schedule like the T2T. http://www.harley....

[PRO] Re: Torrens Road Grade Separation

Perhaps the answer is to build 2 separate but parallel bridges using the existing reserves on the north side to allow for left turns from Churchill Rd into Torrens Rd and from Torrens Rd into Churchill Rd. The existing right hand lanes for traffic turning right from Torrens Rd into Churchill Rd woul...

Re: News & Discussion: Other Metropolitan Developments

Original designs for the dry creek salt pans can be found at https://www.inciteproperty.com.au/projects . A bit unbelievable. It has a light rail link (which appears to utilise a new heavy rail corridor) but what it links to is a mystery. There is a marina but the entrance is via Barker Inlet and un...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

history here and across all of Australia (usually) shows it is Labor Governments who undertake the works that dramatically increase public transport usage ... I believe that SA's most heavily utilised public transport corridor is the O-Bahn and that was built by the Libs. Given that the Libs have h...

This is happening now, actually southbound has been diverted onto a new lane down the median
I don't get that. Ryan Rd and Old Port Wakefield Rd are only about 150m apart and well north of the roadworks. What am I missing?

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.

The latest snaps from Google Maps* (hey, that rhymes!): The photography for the Bolivar, Waterloo Corner and Northern interchanges dates to 9 August 2018 and has been up on Google Earth for a while. The updates (as at 3 January 2019) only cover the area south of Dry Creek all the way to Darlington.

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

Article from In Daily discussing the road lobby's power versus the public transport lobby. Adelaide's public transport users need a more powerful voice OPINION It’s no wonder that public transport users are the bottom of the policy pile when the best-connected and most well-resourced transport lobb...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

DPTI has had billions and billions of dollars in project money over the last 10 years. That money goes a long way towards papering over any inadequacies that the department may have. It would be interesting to see how well it operated in an environment where the project $ had dried up yet the dead ...

Jeepers, I really hope that picture of a double lane tunnel is just an indicative image because if they’re not going to continue with 3 lanes (as like the T2T, Superway and Northern Connector) it’s just going to be a bottle neck nightmare in there. Have they not learnt anything from Sydney’s M5 lac...
