[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

I’m not usually critical of other opinions on this forum but as someone who has been to the AO at Melbourne Park twice in the past 3 years and two night sessions at the Adelaide International so far this year I have to question whether the posters above have actually a) watched any lower level ATP ...

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

Traffic coming from Salisbury Highway but not intending to exit at Grand Junction Road is still going to need to merge into the stream of traffic from the Northern Connector, at the same time as some of that traffic is seeking to move into the Grand Junction Road exit lane. Some of that section is ...

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

Are there road design rules about how wide these shoulders and the traffic lanes should be for various speed limits? Yes, absolutely. I'd say that having individual lane speed signs means motorists can be notified that the left lane is blocked (with a red X) and the other lanes are reduced to 40. T...

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

Traffic was tame enough this morning to utilise the southbound lanes of the Superway this morning. The on-ramp from Salisbury Highway will eventually be reduced to one lane (it's temporarily set up for 2 lanes for now until the northern connector opens), with the lane form Salisbury Highway providin...

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Went to last night's session, and was surprised at how little protection the roof actually provides spectators from the elements, especially on the western end of the old stands. The roof needed to be a tad wider to provide maximum protection. Also, pretty much all of the specator concessions are be...

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

Northbound elevated Motorway has been resurfaced, and is now consistently three lanes from Regency Road to the Southern Interchange. The emergency stopping lane around the on-ramp from Grand Junction Road has been removed to enable this. I could never understand why it went from 3 to 2 suddenly the...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Was travelling city-bound on the Gawler Line from Salisbury station this afternoon around 1:30. Train was already pretty full with BBL-goers when I got on and became progressively more full until we reached Mawson Lakes and the masses of BBL-goers on the platform piled in. All available space was f...

Re: Petrol Station Owners

I recall a while ago that there was plan that On The Run wanted to build service station at the former Go Kart track site on the corner of Waterloo Corner Road and Port Wakefield Highway . Also if I may add as cars come more fuel efficient or more and more people start to transition to hybrids and ...

Re: Harris Scarfe has gone broke

Went to have a pick at the Rundle Mall carcass on Sunday.

In true Harris Scarfe form, their closing down clearance sale is essentially the same discounts they normally offer being passed off as closing down discounts.

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

While it's fantastic that these minor upgrades have been enough to attact an ATP event back to Adelaide, and a WTA event to Adelaide for the first time (and a fairly stacked WTA event in terms of talent too), Memorial Drive is also lucky that it's sandwiched between a stadium with spare facilities a...

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

Looks like the next traffic switch will take place over the next week. When the Superway reopens the Port River Expressway closes for a week or so. I’m assuming this is so the expressway can be realigned.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

The Harris Scarfe space would be perfect for Uni Qlo. Whether they take up 1 or 2 floors though - I think 1 floor would be sufficent for them in comparison to their other stores. Would any major chain be game enough to take up space on the first floor in Rundle Mall anymore? Uni Qlo have success wi...
