Re: After the North South Corridor..

Why, when it runs so close to and parallel with South Road?

Progressing through these has identified potential opportunities to further improve public transport services and connectivity for Port Adelaide and more broadly, the north western suburbs. And you can bet your bottom dollar that these 'improvements' will involve a shitty bus service. A shitty bus ...

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

Absolutely none I imagine. Just a convenient way of canning the project and forcing people on to road-based transport solutions.

Hopefully the Port developers will push back on this one...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

And my main point is that we are similarly decades away from an extensive freeway network (other than the NS motorway) - not that I'm aware of any level of government proposing one be built, but the opinion of several posters on this thread is that further new large roads will be required after thi...

Rail extension to heart of Port Adelaide in doubt due to cost blowout A planned rail spur to the heart of Port Adelaide has been delayed after a detailed review found it would go $24 million over budget. The State Government will instead conduct a study into public transport options in the northwes...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

Cheers Norman, am just really hoping to see construction start soon lest this appears on the Libs' public transport cuts radar. Not that I'm hoping for a direct link from my house to Pirate Life or anything... Looks like I was very wrong on that one. Sorry about that. Did you speak to someone about...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

All valid questions, it will certainly be an interesting transition, but it will happen eventually so we might as well plan around it. The reality is, we are decades away from driverless cars being the norm. And my main point is that we are similarly decades away from an extensive freeway network (o...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Call me daft, but somehow I just can't see driverless cars being a big thing for many decades yet. But nor will an extensive freeway network. So is it even feasible to build such a network in the amount of time it would take automation to potentially deem it unnecessary? Our roads cope pretty well ...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I'd still question the point of spending $billions now to solve a problem that is quite likely to not exist in the future. I'd bet good money that the pace of population growth and traffic congestion in Adelaide will not outpace technology-based solutions to mass people movement which don't require ...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I'm not sure I buy the argument that we're going to need more big roads in the future to cope with increased congestion. In fact I would say there is a strong argument that we're approaching peak congestion with the rapidly impending semi-automation and eventual full-automation of vehicles. Especial...

construction should start in a few weeks
How do you know that just out of interest? I can't see anything on the website that suggests it's progressing - the status is still showing as 'in design' which has been the case since at least as far back as January 2018.
