They are back to work on the Darlington site and within a few months south Bound traffic will be using the lower sections of the road upgrade.

Construction should finish at the end of the year. It looks like they could probably get it completed far sooner than that.

I guess like T2T, "construction" and "finish" mean different things to different people, or sometimes the same people in different contexts. It's not necessarily the first time a Member of the Public is allowed to drive unescorted along the road. For the prime contractors, it is when they bank their last cheque, which will not be signed until after a lot of QA checks, and the landscaping plants have bedded in sufficiently that the ongoing owners have accepted responsibility.

Line marking has been changed at South Rd/Regency intersection - Initial observation seems to be quite an improvement on what was a bottleneck.

South rd has changed to 2 x lanes northbound, 2 x lanes right turn into Regency. Was previously 3 x northbound, 1 x right turn.

I wonder if that means there is traffic now using T2T and Regency Road that used to use the inner ring route and Main North Road or Churchill Road.

Don't know what the point was, it's only a very short term thing as work will start before long on the overpass..

There has always been a buildup of traffic in the right turn lane ever since superway opened. The t2t has made the backlog from regency all the way back to pym. I went through yesterday at 4pm and it did seem a lot quicker.

I use Regency Road and the T2T all the time to get to the airport, the beach, etc. - but traffic is becoming pretty bad at the Main North Road intersection. Muller Road/North East Road is also a shocking intersection if you're not simply going up or down North East Road.

The green right-turn light from South Road into Regency Road has always been generous, so I wonder by doubling the lanes if they will reduce the signal time.
