    Hello there! I'm Richard. Long time reader first time poster. Just wanted to share some interesting information... I was just scrolling through the DPTI website and had come across traffic volumes 24 hour 2 way flows. I'll link it at the bottom. The numbers adjacent to the roads I assume is the volume of cars, and I find it very interesting. For example, the city end of port road volume reads at over 60,000 over a 24 hour period. With the state...

    great idea about Leigh St As for Gouger Street, the roadway needs major streetscaping. For a 1 laned, cafe and restaurant street, its ruled by cars. End the 45 degree carparks, narrow the roadway and increase the width of the footpaths. Gouger Street has way more potential than a car traffic funnel that it currently is Both Rundle and Gouger suffer from having a...

South Road Superway to connect Regency Rd, Port River Expressway

STAFF REPORTERS

October 15, 2009 12:00pm

UPDATED: Regency Road will be connected to the Port River Expressway via an elevated road platform called the South Road Superway.
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and Premier Mike Rann announced the $812 million Superway in Adelaide this morning.

The Federal Government and State Government will share the cost of the project using funds previously allocated to unspecified road projects.

The Superway will be 4.8km long in total, including a 2.8km stretch elevated 10 metres above the existing road.

It is predicted the Superway will reduce travel times by up to seven minutes for the 45,000 vehicles that use that section of South Rd every day.

It will also help link freight carriers from the Regency Park industrial precinct to areas such as Port Adelaide, Outer Harbour, the airport and Islington rail terminal.

The project - to begin in March next year and be completed by December 2013 - will involve the creation of 2750 jobs.

The majority of the route will go through industrial land. Only three properties will need to be acquired for the project to proceed.

It will involve:

A 2.8KM road bridge elevated 10m above the existing road between Wing St and Taminga St.

MODIFICATIONS of 1.7km of South Rd between Taminga St and Regency Rd.

UPGRADES to the local road system.

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, who helped unveil the project, said the government is proud to be involved.

"We're proud to be supporting this project, we're proud to be investing half a billion dollars worth of Australian government finance into this project, and also to support these 2,750 jobs that will come off the construction and furthermore to support also this critical piece of South Australia's long term infrastructure needs,'' he said.

Glenside Redevelopment - $67m Shopping Complex

AdelaideNow has more details on the Glenside retail component of this development.

 

Glenside Shopping Complex

DESIGNS for a $67 million shopping and office precinct, which developers say has the potential to create more than 800 jobs on land within the Glenside Hospital Campus, were unveiled yesterday.

Commercial Retail Group yesterday lodged a development application for the 15,000sq m project with Burnside Council.

The plans include underground parking for 800 cars, cafes, a restaurant and piazza for alfresco dining.

The existing Foodland supermarket and shopping centre – on the north-eastern corner of Fullarton and Glen Osmond roads – would be demolished and replaced by the new precinct.

Commercial Retail Group, the owner of the centre, has described the plan for the area of land known as Precinct 4 in the State Government's Glenside master plan as a "visionary village".

The developer has the first opportunity to buy the land under a State Government agreement.

"The defining feature is a `tree platform' of pavilion roofs inspired by the significant trees within which the centre will be integrated," CRG general manager Mike Rutherford said yesterday.

"The result will be a naturally-lit, open and airy structure with a boulevard, mall, cafes and restaurants, market areas, shops, a supermarket, piazza and outdoor dining."

The shopping precinct would also have a new Foodland, if approved.

In 2007, the State Government announced it would sell 42 per cent of the Glenside Hospital site for a housing and commercial precinct.

Two weeks ago, State Parliament's Environment, Resources and Development Committee rejected the Government's proposal for Glenside.

Planning Minister Paul Holloway has received its findings and is considering further options.
