[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

is there more layers of bitumen to go down in the trench at Darlington? when you enter the trench at the northern end when travelling south the surface has been scraped and there are large raised sections around the man hole covers of the inspection ports. doesn't look finished at all

from my view south of the city this one appears to be around the same height as the black stump and telstra. does the level of the land really fall away that much as you go down curry street??

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

when did the speed limit in the trench at Darlington change to 80? is it north bound only or is the limit 80 south bound as well?

All lanes OPEN at Darlington heading in both directions. Still plenty of road surface to be completed and limit still 40km.

Good news is that it’s almost done.
don't they keep closing off different lanes as in rolling lane closures?

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

the article says that the government expects to announce whatever the plan is within the next few weeks? didn't they say that 18 months ago?

[U/C] Re: [U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

There is little traffic on the road with nearly nothing built on it. Only the suburbs of Hallett Cove and Sheidow Park would see any benefit and it would be a very small benefit. The entry/exit does not exist because it would be a giant waste of money. Yes that's how I remember it. So why all the a...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

drove through Darlington today and finally those traveling south that don't wish to continue onto the SEXY can cut out 5 sets of lights. I was impressed as I thought there was nothing in it for us non expressway users. in the meantime I'll continue to dream about an entry/exit at major's road which ...

[U/C] Re: 104-106 Currie Street | 117m | 33lvl | Sofitel Hotel

what height would the core be sitting at right now? I'm thinking around 50? in meters? It should be about floor 28/29, so that means it's closer to about a 100m ok, I based my figure on the bus being around 2.5m. to be 100m would require around 40 buses stacked on top of each other. I have no idea ...

[U/C] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

I don’t want to drag it on but aceman do you understand it is you making a statement of fact, “there won’t be a season this year” when in fact it is not a fact but only your opinion? mate nothing is fact, my opinion is not a fact and neither is anything the afl is proposing. it's a proposal nothing...

[U/C] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

Ok aceman so you are saying its (already) a fact and not merely your opinion? Can you elaborate who has made this decision (is it a Federal Govt/Health Dept decision)? So even with no crowds there will be no AFL games/season? there are no facts it's speculation. the afl are throwing possible dates ...

With AO a possible ground for the AFL quarantined hubs idea, could/would the teams playing here use this new hotel to accommodate them? I think the proposed completion date was June which a potential AFL start date at the end of July... if its running on time it could work. there won't be a season ...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I think it's obvious that both sides of government have basically shelved the remaining section due to cost. it's all talk nothing else, labor had a plan but never went through with it and the libs are sticking with their 'we're exploring the option of a full blown tunnel' in the meantime the sectio...
