[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

The Sunday Mail report is hollow. The reason DPTI have not released cost estimates is because they've not done cost estimates yet! It's not a detailed plan; just a very vague proposal, possibly fed to the press by the government to gauge public reaction. Meanwhile I've nearly finished an alternativ...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

If they did this as two separate projects ie 2 x 5 - 6 km tunnels, how long would a 5-6 km tunnel take to build? Are my thoughts of 2 years realistic? I know it's unlikely but if a magical $5bn appeared by the end 2021? Well I am no expert however if Seattle can do it we certainly can. And from thi...

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

According to an old street directory Magazine Road was known as St Kilda Road, following similar alignment to the Northern Connector. In theory Magazine Road could be a T junction or interchange with the Salisbury Highway extension. Rather than ending at its southern end (Cormack Road) Magazine Roa...

Getting it ready to sell the land to a land developer maybe, I am sure Lend Lease could make a nice suburb out of it , they did a good job transforming The Levels swamp into a successful suburb It's only a very small part of the land. For reclamation projects it's normally left to the developer (e....

The parklands significantly cools down the city. It would be a lot hotter if they weren’t there.
just imagine what they'd do if they were actually looked after

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

Concrete roads also have less rolling resistance than asphalt roads. One reason for their relative unpopularity is that a lot of motorways built in Europe/UK with concrete in the post war period quickly got a bad reputation for the constant loud road buzz & 'bump bump bump' sensation as you drove o...

How about the SMA / state government stops fxxking around with this pathetic hotel idea and starts focussing on attracting more of the big name performers to SA. Next year in Feb Eminem is touring the other four cities and not Adelaide. All we have is Phil Collins coming up who just about needs a w...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

What a difference it makes when travelling along at 80km instead of 60. As mentioned several times, it's due to the bitumen. The faster you drive, the more force you are pushing down onto the road, meaning if the road isn't fully set the road might deform. At least, that's what I understand from wh...
