Britannia is fine unless you have idiots from Fullarton Rd southbound that just roar through with pace and expect everyone to stop

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

Fix Glen Osmond Rd, especially the intersection with South Tce/Pultney St. Surely a sacrifice of a little bit of the parklands for improved traffic flow could be done.

In Melbourne, they'd have the works done in 3 days. But here, they gotta stretch it out for more money for workers.
