[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

drove through Darlington today and finally those traveling south that don't wish to continue onto the SEXY can cut out 5 sets of lights. I was impressed as I thought there was nothing in it for us non expressway users. in the meantime I'll continue to dream about an entry/exit at major's road which...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

I would hope they are trialing a bus that is capable of doing more than 30 KPH up the 10 degree slope of the northern end of Flagstaff Road. This would mean motorists may not be tempted to unsafely merge on this steep gradient. There is a commitment for an extra lane for this road which is good but...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

I rode one of the new buses last week; it was the 8am or so G21F from Aberfoyle Hub to the City, and even still had the new car smell inside. How we got one on that route I don't know. I've seen a regular few on Flagstaff Road running the Aberfoyle Hub routes across the past two months. I would hop...

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

We could also call it The Marj Motorway.

M1 - South Eastern Freeway - Glen Osmond to Murray Bridge

M2 - North South Motorway - Gawler to Port Noarlunga

Makes sense to me.

All the names suggested would be good for the bridges and overpasses
