Not bizarre at all. I'm looking forward to it too. All signalised dog-leg intersections on major thoroughfares should be removed.

Grange Rd/Holbrooks Rd/East Tce should be next

I don't understand why Edward St/Raglan Avenue hasn't been done. The required land is mostly vacant, and all you're really doing is removing one right hand turn from South Rd.

The Adelaide planning prerequisite is, something has to be built on the vacant land before it’s considered.

In all seriousness tho, not 100% sure as I haven’t been past for a while, but I believe the worse for ware Midas (or like business) on corner of Holbrooks and Grange road was being demolished. Anything looking like going up? *facepalm

I would have thought this is obvious - this section will, within 10 years*, be replaced/augmented by a new road at enormous expense.

*with COVID, who knows whether work will be brought forward due to trying to stimulate our way out of a depression, or pushed back because the country is broke.
