Surely we would be better served if 5G rollout was beefed up rather than trying to connect every single premesis to NBN.
5G wouldn't be able to cope with the demand of the nation, wireless is a dead end

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

First decent crash on the NC, just south of Bolivar interchange, northbound. 20+min delays and no way of turning around or devouring. No Google maps traffic or VMS yet either Car hit the guard rail, swerved back onto the road and t-boned a truck. Does anyone know if they left provisions to build th...

There wouldn't be a devastatingly huge amount of property acquisition
Between Piggot Range Rd and Sheoak Rd is the Onkaparinga River National Park with the Onkaparinga Gorge.

So? what does that have to do with property acquisition?

Widening roads to ease traffic congestion is like loosening your belt to cure obesity.
We aren't at that stage yet. Fixing our roads is like finally buying bigger clothes because we've had a growth spurt, except our growth spurt happened 25 years ago

Re: The SA Politics Thread

I think we've all learned not to put too much stock in opinion polls, but for what it's worth, a poll out today shows the Liberals badly trailing Labor and Malinauskas looking pretty good against Marshall two years on from the election. Shonky polls and an election still two years away notwithstand...

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

I have noticed that trucks tend to drive in middle lane not the left lane in between Southern Interchange and Northern Expressway, in some parts the left lane on the northbound side appears to slope a bit like a speedway. The Bolivar interchange just seems badly designed. I have no problems with th...

first full working day using it.. bumper to bumper at 6:00am.

I actually completely forgot to take it home, but Port Wakefield Road might as well have had tumbleweeds rolling down it. There was no traffic at 5pm

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

Because my origin is the top of Magill Rd and destination is Queen St Norwood near the western side of the Magill Rd and Portrush Rd intersection. If it’s really backed up I’ll drive down Beulah Rd, but overall it doesn’t save much time because I have to get back to the Queen St / Magill Rd interse...

Did the full length north and south. It's pretty good, would be even better if people who didn't know how to drive on freeways would stay off it. Every exit had someone cutting across all lanes to get to far left lane

Re: Glen Osmond and Fullarton Road intersection upgrade

Since no existing thread exists, and I’m not sure that intersection each upgrade warrants one / since they are relatively close together. Can anyone send a link to this article? I find this very difficult to imagine... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk https://cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/069372b1c...
