[COM] Re: COM: South Road Superway | $842m | 3km

I use this once per week in both directions on a commute between business locations. Yesterday whilst heading north, it appears this has created a large bottle neck where traffic merges from the Port River expressway onto Port Wakefield Road in a northerly direction. It is a single lane merge. I'm ...

It is not at practical completion at this point in time. It is operating in a limited capacity, at lower speeds and without the ITS - Intelligent Transport System - operational. Saw a post on DPTI's Facebook informing that the southbound carriageway would be closed overnight on Friday for signal te...

Just beacuse a road is open does not mean the project is complete. There is usually a grace period where any defects are identified and must be rectified before the road is handed over and project deemed complete. I suggest this is still some months away. I am aware that there is still some minor d...

[COM] Re: COM: South Road Superway | $842m | 3km

While the upper level is now open in both directions and I tried out the going north direction on the week end , the lower level north of of Grand junction Road is far from complete. It was not possible to drive north from grand junction road to Cormack road last Sunday without numerous detours. Ye...

It amazes me how this can cost nearly $900 million and yet there is still exposed plumbing visible while driving on south rd below. Looks ridiculous, as if plumbing and drainage was an after thought. Even worse, when it rains, it leaks in sever spots onto south rd below. Should we expect the torren...

Re: #Pro: Existing major highways to become toll roads

I would have to say that in the past I would have objected, but with the increasing construction costs and community/business expectations, it seems to be the only way of funding. I am not suggesting a full toll, but a nominal rate for the commuter and higher for freight that offsets the initial out...

Calibration and commissioning of the ITS system still taking place, and the seal is of a type that requires a couple of weeks trafficking prior to reaching acceptable skid resistance for 90 kph. There will be after hour diversion of traffic at grade to the north of Grand Junction Rd, simply because ...
