how good is he wrote:So South Rd will now go down to just 2 lanes (each way) using these service roads. So will this likely be the case until its all finished (in some 2 years)?

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

Years ago, I remember them changing the signs. I think it might have been when the superway was being constructed, because prior to the NC being complete we had 3 seperate M2's M2 Nexy M2 (Superway) M2 Sexy We still do: northern expressway - superway, t2t, Southern expressway. All signposted as M2 ...

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

I imagine if SA Labor were in Government now they would have extended the motorway from Tonsley to Edwardstown, with commercial nature of corridor between St Marys and Edwardstown I predict they might opt for elevated and minor intersection changes I.e Raglan Avenue/Grange Road, Celtic Avenue. That...

[PRO] Re: [PRO] Re: Ovingham Level Crossing Removal

As you can't book any tickets next year now, due to the uncertainty of funding from both the SA Libs and Vic Lab governments.

The same way they've budgeted $61 million to add a couple lanes to the Fullarton Rd/Cross Rd intersection.
