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

So a bit of rain this morning and the entire motorway is down to 80km/h. Man do i hate variable speed signs. It was actually slower than port Wakefield road which has a fixed speed limit of 90km/h for the majority. So I've come up with a very simple solution Summer = Motorway Winter = Port Wakefiel...

The developers never said it was already "complete". That was only Sensational Adelaide. The developers said it was "open to traffic".
I know, but it had been slated for December 2019 completion from the beginning of the project

60km/h speed restrictions at north and south ends are getting a bit old now. Maybe the southern end is warranted, but the northern end is a joke. 'complete' December 2019? It's April 2020 and still not complete

First decent crash on the NC, just south of Bolivar interchange, northbound. 20+min delays and no way of turning around or devouring. No Google maps traffic or VMS yet either

Speed limits on the Northern Connector will be lifted to 110km/h from about 11am tomorrow. some of the electric speed limit signs had 110 posted today on my drive home. One of the signs north of Bolivar changed from 80 to 110 around 4pm, but before I could even get to 110 it had changed back to 80....

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

Google Maps now features the NC, but updates are still required for the Southern and Bolivar Interchanges. Interestingly the northern expressway is still shown as the M20. When did it change to M2? Years ago, I remember them changing the signs. I think it might have been when the superway was being...

There is sign on port Wakefield road saying the Nexy off ramp will close permanently on the 16th of February. Unless im mistaken, I didn't see the word 'permanant' on the sign. I assume it's just a day closure to allow for tour busses for the open day to use the temp ramp to turn around My mistake,...

[COM] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

The new WCR roundabout to motorway is bigger than the rest of the northern expressway ones, so I dunno why people are saying it's smaller. I saw a b double turning to go over the WCR bridge this morning, if I had time I would have followed him to watch him go around the roundabout. Any vehicles goin...

[COM] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

Then why have the northbound carriageway through the north most bridge span at the northern interchange, while leaving the centre span unused and useless? Way too much of the current project would have to be reworked to ever build the rail component.

The original Northern Connector proposal included a railway in the median which will divert freight trains away from the Salisbury Town Centre area Oh yes. Why was this scrapped in the first place? I read about the reason for changing from in the median to on the western side of the corridor but co...

The latest DPTI update has some new video footage of the Northern Connector. Not sure when the footage was taken. https://youtu.be/uut6HkSsINs I'm not normally a hater but what a load of b.s. Apart from telling us how many shrubs they have planted, there is absolutely no information in that video w...

Community open day currently scheduled for Sunday 8 February. Likely to take another couple of weeks after that before opening to traffic. Yep, apart from the southern interchange, bugger all has been happening on the Bolivar and northern interchanges. Some of the variable speed signs at the northe...
