Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

I wonder why $13.2 million is allocated to the Goodwood and Torrens Rail Junction Project. I thought these were both complete? Unless we're finally getting the promised overpass for the Mike Turtur Bikeway? It might be for completing the pedestrian level crossing at the Torrens Junction in North Ad...

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

That would be a strange route. And rather disastrous to the amenity of the linear parks.

[COM] Re: M2 Northern Connector | 15.5km | $867m

Despite the [COM] flag on this topic, there are still people working on it. The FAQ on the opening says that "Finishing works will continue which may require some lane and speed restrictions, and a temporary closure, to ensure the safety of motorists and workers accessing the site." and "The Shared ...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Cars waiting to turn right at ridiculously small intersections is the bane of my driving life. On major roads like Unley Road, many cars park in the left lane, while others block the right lane while waiting to make right turns at every little cross street, making it very hard for through traffic to...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

I'm glad to see the slip lanes go. Several years ago I was in a near miss at the slip lane from West Terrace turning left into Currie Street. The cars were stopped in traffic and I was on my bike proceeding through the slip lane to the left of the stopped cars. One of the stopped cars was a parent d...

Rather they run one car every half hour than two cars every hour.

Perhaps they are the pumping stations mentioned in the recent email from the T2T Alliance: “Pit lids for two of the pumping station pits in the South Road lowered motorway will also be replaced.” T2T Alliance is advising of upcoming night and weekend works to install anti-throw screen columns and pa...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Is is true that any station at which the tram-train needed to stop would have needed to be modified to have a platform at a lower height to suit boarding the tram-train?

[VIS] Re: Interstate Trains at Adelaide Railway Station

The gradients for the remainder of the Adelaide Hills include several more stretches of 1 in 45, including around Petwood and Callington, and 1 in 49 coming into Murray Bridge. From Murray Bridge to Serviceton, the maximum gradient looks to be 1 in 80. But from Serviceton to Melbourne there are agai...

[VIS] Re: Interstate Trains at Adelaide Railway Station

A better way would be to realign the Adelaide-Wolseley line out of the inner hills. The map below is a hastily made simple version of maps I've already made, but the idealised bypass in pink (tunnel and viaduct combo, obviously won't be a straight line) will run Mitcham to Crafers, then follow SEF ...

[PRO] Re: Torrens Road Grade Separation

I'm not surprised the Torrens Road level crossing sees higher traffic than the one on Park Terrace Salisbury, because the Torrens Road one is on the fastest route to or from the city for commuters living in a fair sized residential area. Whereas, with two equally good routes to and from the city in ...

Drill a tunnel through the hill from the lower arrestor bed on the South Eastern Freeway, to come out on the North South Motorway on the vacant land near Ackland Street, perhaps with incentives for Olympic Industries and Parmalat to find new sites. there aren't many dairies in that part of Adelaide...

Mawsonguy, if I understand your diagram, would the right turns from Churchill into Torrens pass under the northern bridge, and then up a ramp to join the southern bridge over the railway? I found a paper that says: The maximum loading height for wagons between Adelaide and Perth/Darwin is 6.3m (or 6...

[PRO] Re: Westfield Marion (2019/20 Extension)

It’s not difficult to find a park if you’re willing to walk out in the rain. Meanwhile for those of us who want to park undercover it can take a while. I welcome the multi storey car park.
