Nah this argument is alright, Aidan added some numbers together, he's good at that.
Remember people, the correct way to say how many lanes a road is is 4+4 not 4x4 because 4x4=16 whereas 4+4=8, Saying this will mean Aidan will say something like "ZOMG!!! why do you want to build a 16 lane road LOLOLOLOL"



Anywho, when is this project expected to be open?

I think it's September, but there hasn't really been an update about the final date yet.

Northern Expressway ahead of schedule

From: AdelaideNow

August 15, 2010 3:02

Work on the $564 million Northern Expressway is three months ahead of schedule, with Adelaide's newest freeway now scheduled to be open to traffic on September 13.

Federal Minister for Infrastructure Anthony Albanese and Premier Mike Rann today opened the Port Wakefield Road bridge - one of 15 bridges along the 23-kilometre Northern Expressway.

Mr Rann said the bridge opening heralded the imminent completion of the expressway, which will link the Sturt Highway with Port Wakefield Road.

He announced a community celebration of the expressway on September 12, which would include a 46km bike race.

The federal government contributed $451.2 million to the freeway project via its economic stimulus plan.

NO WAY! Are you serious? The M31 is the Hume Highway between Sydney and Melbourne, eastern terminus of the Sturt Highway. Why would they put a "TO M31" sign when it's 1000kms further ahead and across another two states?
