Superway, T2T, Darlington, Southern Expwy duplicated, Northern Connector, planning for Pym to Regency..plus a whole range lf other roads and intersections upgraded.SBD wrote: ↑Sun Aug 18, 2019 8:44 amI agree with your last sentence. They should get on with it.
We get photos of Koutsantonis standing with his arms crossed in front of his favourite building. Labor said it would be built in 4 years, but if that could have been the case, the planning would have started. We'd have their members crowing about knowing the best way to do it and Lib should get on at doing it ("show some leadership and do it the way we say"), and Liberal would have access to all the plans in DPTI. My interpretation is that Labor said it would be done when the audience was potential users, and did nothing about it if the audience might include people who would be displaced or inconvenienced by roadworks during the construction.
Libs are also upgrading a bunch of other intersections, including on both Cross and Portrush Roads.
Labor did plenty, all be it slowly.
To imply now that Tom doesnt want a motorway through his electorate when its his constituents that will be affected by being stuck in the extreme congestion that will occur with a motorway on either end, is crazy.
The Liberals did nothing but complain as opposition. What are they going to do now as government. So far theyve allowed Pym to Regency to proceed without delays. Theyre talking about T2T to Darlington, floating the idea of tunnels, because even they know the alternative is to demolish properties including heritage listed buildings.
They did occasionally complain about congestion. So its taken them too long IMO as government to address some of that with the intersection upgrades theyve announced. Too long and too little.
So its up to South Australians. Do you want to spend inexcess of 5-6 billion on a motorway featuring tunnels that they estimate will take a decade to complete at least, or do you want to continue with a T2T style motorway and have heritage listed properties demolished.
The options have been put before you.
Labor isnt kicking and screaming because they dont know what the majority want either.
Theyre both gaudging public opinion.
There was a strong response to the Advertiser running a scare campaign to knock down Thebby (a dilapidated shit hole), but many more arr in favor of just getting the corridor finished.
My opinion, theyll build a trench for most of it, and a couple short tunnels in some areas where its too sensitive to demolish heritage listed buildings..like Thebby where the opposite side is a school.
