[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Although, still concerned about outbound evening peak traffic will still be stuck at the intersection and back up Ayliffes Road like it’s always done once the project is fully completed. When the project is complete, tHat intersection should have a *lot* more capacity than it does now. Several of t...

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

Both options are vastly inferior to google maps. Google By GPS I did mean Google Maps or if you must, TomTom based services like Apple Maps. If you use anything other than Google Maps you have junk traffic data ;) So Google Maps real-time traffic data is better than Apple Maps? Just asking, I find ...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Or even better, use phone app Addinsight. Both options are vastly inferior to google maps. Google has several orders of magnitude more data than everyone else (it collects real time data from every android or google maps user), and a better ability to use it to forecast and capture real time traffic.

Looks like the Darlington road will be called The Southern Expressway (not the North South Motorway)

Permanent overhead signage has now been installed at the ayliffes road entrance.

The ledger for a David and Goliath battle of house acquisitions Matt Smith, Political Editor, Sunday Mail (SA) Tunnels could be legally built beneath people’s homes along the North-South Corridor, under new rules proposed by the State Government. In a South Australian first, changes to the laws tha...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

everything was drip fed to us. There is an up-side to being drip-fed. It should lower the risk by breaking the project up into more manageable sections. DPTI is getting experienced at executing billion dollar upgrades now, but imagine if the first substantial project (superway) was a $5 billion dol...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I think you've caught yourself up in semantics and entirely missed his point. Whatever corporate-speak euphemism or public sector bludger tropes you want to use, there are many real world examples of the downsides to public service of the process (as with East Coast rail). And my point - which is t...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

robably not, given they have basically been gagged from even commenting on it. Some PSAs (Passenger Service Assistants) found out about the privatisation through word of mouth - some even from passengers. The debate over privatisation of Adelaide's light and heavy rail will not so much be about the...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Etsa and SA water assets are still owned by the sa government and exclusive control of operation is leased out. Getting more specific, SA Water is a government owned corporation, with some independence from government but also a lot in common - for example, staff are given HR rankings - instead of ...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

That shows that quite a bit of effort went into planning the MATS plan - it was not just a "big hands, small map" thought bubble before an election. I wonder if anyone has done or is doing that level of planning for the North-South Motorway, GlobeLink hills bypass or links from the South Eastern Fr...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

It also leads to people purchasing and constructing on land, speculatively or otherwise- which should already be quarantined. One thing i've often wondered is whether the government has the power to retrospectively "quarantine" land in this way, without purchasing it or compensating the owners. Doe...
