Re: News & Discussion: Road Issues & Traffic Congestion

An amusing read but I note no mention of the Superway structure towering over the top at South Road. The decoration in the design was perhaps not in keeping with the overall tone of the article.

With regard to bypassing Port Wakefield or additional lanes along the existing alignment through the town, the following from August last year has some costings, Seven councils are fighting the bypass option, proposing instead an alternate plan for a double lane highway through the town and further ...

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

The Bolivar Road interchange looks like an attempt to integrate two main objectives, a free-flowing trumpet design with a northbound exit/entry to the OTR fuel stop. The southbound entry from Bolivar Road will presumably be braided (grade separated) from the southbound exit to the Hodgson Road round...

Re: News & Discussion: Transport Projects

I wonder if the state Libs went to their federal counterparts asking for part funding for the bypass and the feds said no hence the cheaper option of the CCH overpass over the existing PWR. I note the render shows 2-lanes in each direction for PWR under the bridge but the impression I get is that ex...

Re: News & Discussion: Transport Projects

The Liberal opposition have committed to part funding a single lane southbound overpass from Copper coast Highway to PW Road at the intersection north of the town. https://www.theflindersnews.com.au/story/5194564/overpass-pledge/ The Wakefield Regional Council has since weighed in suggesting in addi...

A DPTI Capital Works Program fro 2017 has Regency Road to Pym St delivered by the end of Q4 2020/21 (June 30 2021). https://dpti.sa.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0004/335533/Forward_Work_plan_020817_HQ.pdf This is subject to funding which I'd suggest is likely given the upcoming state election.

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

Page 47 shows the bridge elements being built as part of the current project. The Globe Derby interchange bridge isn't one of the nine highlighted.

The GD interchange is a future design element that's not part of the current build.

that's definitely the PRexy interchange, I'm assuming they've changed the design to something like this That's essentially it.

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

I've juxtaposed the map of the Southern Interchange from the NC PDF file onto the latest Google Earth imagery for the site. Some things line up, but there are evidently smaller modifications to the final product (and hopefully not massive errors instead!). Old design. Current works match better to ...

[U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

The big tease on the publication of the current design continues.

Interchange maps will be published early 2018 according to an update on the DPTI project page.

With recent information posted, it's worth reviewing the design elements relative to the August 2016 industry briefing (previously posted). https://gateway.icn.org.au/project/3748/north-south-corridor-northern-connector-project-lendlease?st=projects&psid=1468345768 Comparing with the southern interc...

Delays in publishing updated design maps may be due to further changes of which evidence of a loop ramp in the clearing footprint at the Bolivar Rd interchange site is one.

[U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

The project map on the project site is still not current. Latest Nearmap at the Bolivar Rd interchange site shows clearing for a northbound on-ramp. Interestingly, the space cleared for the northbound off-ramp indicates it will now pass under the future interchange bridge and connect to Bolivar road...
