Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

NTRabbit, It is possible to build an underpass without closing the railway any longer than would be required for normal trackwork, by using a prefabricated deck. In some cases it may be possible with no closure at all (using box jacking). But I think RiseHigh was referring to the Blackwood crossing...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

I go through it often enough to know it; I don't see how they could build and elevate a bridge over the track while retaining road connections to the very nearby houses and the Belair Hotel, and I don't see how they could shut down the freight line for the amount of time it would take to dig down in...

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...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

I don't know why our state government doesn't just ditch the Indigenous gallery/museum and opt for the modern art gallery instead. NT has more claim over such a gallery than we do, a larger indigenous population for one. Secondly, if the state government are charging ahead because they think the id...

Re: 2019 Footy Express

Looking forward to the Marshall government forwarding another $40m of taxpayer money to the SMA to build a multistory car park across the road shortly before they cancel the footy express, in a totally unrelated move

Re: 2019 Footy Express

Glad to see they were finally able to smack some sense into the hapless transport minister, you'd have thought they'd at least have the sense to pick an urban member who has actually caught a bus before to take that portfolio, rather than a rural member who thinks a bus and a tourist coach are the s...

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

I drove up and down Goodwood Rd on Sunday, they've definitely done something to the islands all the way along the centennial park cemetary frontage, I just couldn't quite put my finger on what it was as I was driving past

I tried to compare the overhead to a similar view from T2T, but let's just say Google needs to send one of their camera cars out on a more comprehensive up to date run (click wrong and you can instantly travel in time between 2018, 2013, and 2008)

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I went through the Gallipoli Underpass this afternoon and the 2 lanes seem just a bit wider than normal so if the bike lane and the centre island go there could just be room for 3 lanes each way with a very thin central barrier. I don't know how wide the lanes are or need to be, but it looks like i...

Re: News & Discussion: Other Metropolitan Developments

Works have restarted in the Flagstaff Pines development at the top of Flagstaff Rd, they were originally ceased years ago, where they left a big ass elevated dead-end, after a small housing block because of a fight over a planned shopping centre. Not sure what the outcome of that was, or what they'r...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

claybro, I make no apologies for presenting the cheaper option. DPTI's Flinders Link plan is catastrophic for Adelaide's long term development, as it would make it very difficult to extend the line further (and if they did somehow manage it, the route would be very slow and expensive). However it d...

Yeah Bill Shorten doesn't have a plan for the North-South Motorway, what he has is a promise to give $1.2 billion in matched federal funding to the people who do have a plan so that they can get on with it
