[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. Especia...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

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.

[PRO] Re: [PRO] Re: Torrens Road Grade Separation

Wouldn't you include a grade separation of Hawker Street while you are at it considering it is only 500m away from Torrens Road? The rail itself doesn't move, Torrens Road will go over the tracks on a bridge, so there is no impact on Hawker Street. Fun fact, Hawker Street used to have a bridge when...
