Southern interchange north-south is now bumped up to 90
I'm guessing that's full speed?

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?

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

The focus should be on finishing the NSM ASAP. A possible next bug project...upgrading the Dukes from Tailem to tge Victorian border. It's one of our state's main freight routes. But I think our states infrastructure is so bad, where do you start next? Imho, how about draw 3 out of a hat and start ...

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

I am in favour of the reduced speed limits for now. Just the other day I saw a guy move from the right lane to the Salisbury Highway off-ramp, crossing about 4 lanes of traffic in 1 single sweep. I understand the reduced speed limits around the southern interchange. But north of Bolivar rd? Please,...

When traveling north, there is a sign saying port Wakefield road. But when you get to the exit, the next sign says port Wakefield highway. Also, when leaving the port expressway to join the NSM there is a sign that says start freeway.

NEXY is closed tomorrow to resurface the southbound lanes onto the NC. This must be the last step surely?

While we are all having dumb ideas, why not remove all the bridges and have ferries instead?

[PRO] Re: Birkenhead Bridge Upgrade Project

Ummm... wasn't a new bridge built about 12 years ago, along with a nice new road in 2005 to divert the heavy traffic away from the port? To build across the Port River further downstream would lead to either a need for a much higher bridge, or more openings as there are more frequent large ship mov...

[PRO] Re: Birkenhead Bridge Upgrade Project

Sorry, this whole idea is strange. If any new bridge was to be built across the Port River it should be from Osborne, and across Torrens island to meet with the NSM.

That way heavy vehicle traffic all along Victoria road and in the inner Port would be greatly reduced.

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

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,...

I imagine they won't close Salisbury highway to finish the off ramp until the NC is open. Seeing as traffic volumes on the off ramp will drop after the opening.
