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

Speed cameras are (mostly) revenue raisers, and the cameras on the down track of the freeway are some of the highest earners in the state. Are those cameras different technology than others? All other fixed cameras take the picture of the car from behind. The top and bottom on the sef are the oppos...

Perth has a population 50% bigger than Adelaide.
You would expect it's stadium to have a larger capacity.

Public Hospital beats low use parkland.

The focus should be what becomes of the old Women's and Children's Hospital site.

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

There is significant traffic going through for Grenfell Road. Milne Road is a lessor concern. The dog leg for Grenfell hasn't made sense since the 00's when the traffic volume increased that the turn with care for left and right turns in all directions was removed. This terrible "2x T intersect...

I think Salisbury city centre is Adelaide's best pedestrian district. It isn't a good world example, but it is Adelaide's best.

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

2 lanes plus stops each way? Eg 6 lane wide road?
Currie/Grenfell is 1 lane for stops (and left turns), 1 lane through (for buses) and 1 car lane in each direction. Eg there is 4 lanes dedicated to buses on Grenfell/Currie right now.

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

I am sure on/off ramps will be placed to avoid unnecessary shorts trips wanting to use the motorway. Eg the local shops of Castle Plaza should not be a destination of the motorway. South Road will remain for locals to use for the their daily commute to the city and their weekly supermarket visits. T...

2020 was Golden Way to Montague.
It is the same sections of road being repaired which are repaired every few years.

The road has significant problems and laying new bitumen on it every 12 months is not a fix.

McIntyre Road has always had significant problems. It gets cut back and new bitumen every few years to relevel it. The same work will likely be due again by 2023. Clearly the road has structural problems but no one has done better than continued patch work to relevel. Just wanted to point out most ...
