I was out at Port Adelaide today and took a couple of photos of the bridgeworks. Traffic was insane, at a snails pace everywhere for some reason.

Excellent photos again Adam. You've got talent! I think the traffic might be related to that 'ice and snow' thing they had going down at the Port Adelaide lighthouse. I was down there on Saturday night and it was pretty busy then too. Port Adelaide is coming along nicely.

Talent? Nah.

Re: Traffic. That's what I thought at first, but the stand-still went all the way down Commercial Rd in both directions. I never saw what was at the end. Perhaps it was footy crowds making their way home?

From this evening, sneaking them in while there was still light!

Very British looking level crossing running diagonally though the new intersection of The Grand Trunkway and Eastern Parade. It has what could be best described as a "digital" chime:

Thanks mate for that.

Going way of the topic here, but I hope the State Government uses modern and different street lights/poles than the typical lights/poles for this and other road projects.

Me thinks its time for a change :).

You know what light poles are attractive, the ones they used on the new section of tapleys hill road when they extended the runway.

Rail approach from the east before reaching the bridge

Monster crane. Apparantly one of, if not the biggest in Australia at the moment. They got it in from Germany at a cost of $100,000/day. Wouldnt want to get behind schedule with that baby sitting around!

Big lifter! Looks like a pivoting part of the opening section.
