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

https://i.imgur.com/AMXiz1a.png 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? You'd hope they meant Mill Rd. There's also ...

[PRO] Re: Goodwood/Springbank/Daws Road Intersection

Would a roundabout work here? It's far too busy for a roundabout I am not voting for or against a roundabout, but I note that the total traffic through this intersection/these intersections is very similar to the total at the Britannia Roundabout(s), based on totalling the traffic on each feeder ro...

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

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. I wondered something like ...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

Even better. The ARTC line is a major barrier for locals. At some stage in the future, the ARTC line could be replaced by a new route adjacent to the Northern Connector. That was a Labor plan, but the most likely time for it to actually happen seems to be as the end of the the GlobeLink from Monart...

Nobody has posted here yet that the Waterloo Corner Road overpass will open next Tuesday morning, and St Kilda Road will be cut a few days later.

The ramp from the South Road Superway to Salisbury Highway will also be closed overnight twice next week to remove the streetlights and signs.

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

I'd like to see Park Terrace go underneath the railway line - a long box culvert should do the trick. I'd rather they elevate the line from Kings Road to Commercial Road and kill 3 level crossings in one go. The ARTC line being there makes it a bit harder though Even better. The ARTC line is a majo...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

The site doesn't seem like it would be big enough for a decent aquatic center. The site looks to be about half the size of the North Parklands aquatic centre (without parking). The swimming pool would need to be upstairs from the diving pool (or vice versa). Either way would make for some "interest...

[PRO] Re: Goodwood/Springbank/Daws Road Intersection

There are issues with the Liberal version regardless of whether lanes are widened, and that you don't need to be an engineer to understand, e.g. turning right on to Springbank from Goodwood Road will still not allow all of the traffic that wants to get around to get around, even with two lanes (its...

Do any of the people who "know" that the current proposal is wrong, inadequate or not as good as the previous version actually have any qualifications in traffic engineering, or are you all as ignorant as I am?

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

The Blackwood train station boom gates at main coromandel road are terrible, the traffic banks all the way to the Blackwood roundabout and stops the roundabout from running. But as if they would spend any money there. Between curved roads, houses, train station, pub, the interstate freight line, an...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

I feel this proposed ACC measure is to curtail greedy developers who overstep their boundaries (literally and metaphorically). Verandahs and balconies on them can be nice as part of the streetscape, but higher than that is definitely just expanding the footprint. One of the contributing factors to ...

Says $61m on the Govt website for the Cross Roads part.

Still no detail as to why.
Gallipoli Underpass cost $118M ten years ago.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

I can imagine there may be some situations where protrusions may be undesirable. For instance, I don't like the metallic thing that solely sticks out from the Bendigo & Adelaide Bank on Grenfell Street. But I'm not sure the aim of enforcing a 'city wall' effect throughout the whole of the city is i...

In Melbourne, they'd have the works done in 3 days.

But here, they gotta stretch it out for more money for workers.
That's the ALP. Supposedly Liberal care about the bosses ("small business") not the workers so there would be no need to stretch the job out longer than it has to be.
