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

First decent crash on the NC, just south of Bolivar interchange, northbound. 20+min delays and no way of turning around or devouring. No Google maps traffic or VMS yet either

Speed limits on the Northern Connector will be lifted to 110km/h from about 11am tomorrow. some of the electric speed limit signs had 110 posted today on my drive home. One of the signs north of Bolivar changed from 80 to 110 around 4pm, but before I could even get to 110 it had changed back to 80....

Google Maps now features the NC, but updates are still required for the Southern and Bolivar Interchanges. Interestingly the northern expressway is still shown as the M20. When did it change to M2? Years ago, I remember them changing the signs. I think it might have been when the superway was being...

There is sign on port Wakefield road saying the Nexy off ramp will close permanently on the 16th of February. Unless im mistaken, I didn't see the word 'permanant' on the sign. I assume it's just a day closure to allow for tour busses for the open day to use the temp ramp to turn around My mistake,...

The new WCR roundabout to motorway is bigger than the rest of the northern expressway ones, so I dunno why people are saying it's smaller. I saw a b double turning to go over the WCR bridge this morning, if I had time I would have followed him to watch him go around the roundabout. Any vehicles goin...

Then why have the northbound carriageway through the north most bridge span at the northern interchange, while leaving the centre span unused and useless? Way too much of the current project would have to be reworked to ever build the rail component.

The original Northern Connector proposal included a railway in the median which will divert freight trains away from the Salisbury Town Centre area Oh yes. Why was this scrapped in the first place? I read about the reason for changing from in the median to on the western side of the corridor but co...

The latest DPTI update has some new video footage of the Northern Connector. Not sure when the footage was taken. https://youtu.be/uut6HkSsINs I'm not normally a hater but what a load of b.s. Apart from telling us how many shrubs they have planted, there is absolutely no information in that video w...

Community open day currently scheduled for Sunday 8 February. Likely to take another couple of weeks after that before opening to traffic. Yep, apart from the southern interchange, bugger all has been happening on the Bolivar and northern interchanges. Some of the variable speed signs at the northe...

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

Are there road design rules about how wide these shoulders and the traffic lanes should be for various speed limits? Yes, absolutely. I'd say that having individual lane speed signs means motorists can be notified that the left lane is blocked (with a red X) and the other lanes are reduced to 40. T...

Northbound elevated Motorway has been resurfaced, and is now consistently three lanes from Regency Road to the Southern Interchange. The emergency stopping lane around the on-ramp from Grand Junction Road has been removed to enable this. I could never understand why it went from 3 to 2 suddenly the...

With only 5 weeks till the construction industry break for Christmas / new year there is still heaps to do at the southern, Bolivar and northern interchanges. I don't think the general public will be driving on the NC till at least January or even later.
