If buying apartments means less urban sprawl, then fantastic.

Re: News & Discussion: Cycling

I agree, but the purpose of these is to ween people away from using carparks. Plus, they are adaptable to needs.

An electronic scooter equivalent probably wouldn't go astray either.

Re: News & Discussion: Cycling

We could do with some of these.

I won't deny it - those escalators look hideous and spoil the whole look.

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

Why would we want more buses on a motorway? There are trains down south which are much faster then a bus to get into the city. We want to get Adelaide moving not slow it down. Motor Ways are for cars, we don’t need more buses in Adelaide to clog up our road system. Our road system is already clogge...

The recent cost cutting on this project wouldn't have happened on John Hanlon's watch. Unfortunately, the Liberals decided to get involved.

Rollercoaster Freeway. Speaking of the rollercoaster effect. Anyone got an insights on how the section between southern end of T2T and West Thebarton Rd will be achieved. The area where the Taylor Bridge is looks way too narrow to accomodate an at grade solution surely? Labor envisioned a new, elev...

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

The Emerson overpass was built in 1984, and was at the time considered a bit of a resurgence of the ideas of the MATS Plan. Certainly, a full grade separation is required here, and the existing overpass is not suitable for motorway traffic. Labor's plan in the Scoping Report was for a 'duplication' ...

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

The height of the tunnel will be determined by a number of factors, including the number of tunnel lanes required. The number of lanes will determine the diameter of the Tunnel Boring Machines (TBM) in addition to freight and High Productivity Vehicle height needs. While the diameter of TBMs can va...

I think it will be a split interchange, as identified in the Scoping Report. Two ramps at Sir Donald Bradman Drive, and the other two at Richmond Road.
