I also went to the community day on Sunday, nothing much to add onto what Jarrod's already said. I also parked down near O'Sullivans Beach Road, and there was a bit of confusion with the guy at our stop, he thought we had to get on a bus that was heading North, but all North buses were on the new roadway, he later called and found out we get on a Southbound bus and turn around at Noarlunga. Otherwise the event seemed to be very well managed. I would have liked to get there earlier and be able to take one of the tour buses though (guided half hour tours, as opposed to the shuttle buses) but oh well.
Also went along the whole length of the expressway tonight, and took note of how the current side was going. All the new road surface was laid, except at the start and end (and most likely Reynella Interchance). The entire centre wall was built, except for a small section between the Reynella Interchange and Young Street.
Almost all of the expressway is 80km/h now, only exceptions being 60km/h at all of the interchanges, and dropping to 40km/h between Reynella Interchange and Young Street where they've recently put in another section of the wall.
Many Gantry sign poles are erect, and just waiting on the sign to be placed on, most likely not until soon before the official opening. Signs were apparently installed on Marion Road last weekend, and will be installed this weekend at both ends of South Road, with quite significant lane disruptions.
