This announcement seems to introduce some changes to policy.
Looking at the link provided it seems to be a more practical layout on the website.
I read it and got quite a bit of information in the first read.
As a former transport operator Pym Street is always in need of change.
The Churchill road entrance/ exit is a nightmare with a tight clearance, a high voltage carrying Stobie pole, and strange median arrangement .
When the factory was closed a change to the road should have been made, but instead a ticky tacky high rise was stacked into the corner.
The South Road entrance has a very low load limit to stop traffic entering from South Road.
Not exactly the best way to assist industries in the area to receive or despatch goods.
The new plan will restrict access from the South.
As a former resident of the area there will need to be some changes to the 230 / 232 bus services.
Possibly outbound will need to go to Churchill Road/ Regency Road. So some Devon Park residents will need to walk further to access transport. ( possibly removing the express trains passing Ovingham, Dudley Park etc would help a little) .
The city bound services could stay on Regency Road to South Road and turn into Pym Street, or a service could run down Days road to Torrens road.
Or a truly worthwhile service could be to split the 230 / 232 to each of those alternatives.
On a practical note, Sunnybrae Farm ( just behind Coopers Brewery ) was the hub of Adelaides sewerage system as I understand it is the lowest point of land in Adelaide . A very high water table could be a good practical reason for elevating the road.
The sewerage main near the entrance to Islington freight terminal was the reason for that unusual bridge.
It appears that land will be resumed both sides of South road as the shops closer to Pym Street are missing on the elevations.
( which makes the signage on the currently empty shop quite fitting as a gravestone for the previous administration) This shop is undergoing renovation !!!!
I will miss the fish and chips from Barney's.
A certain assistant police commissioner will be happy with the closure of three brothels.
On my last trip to Melbourne coming off the Great Ocean Road it was interesting to see how the expressway and non stop roads were continuous.
Then come back to Adelaide.
Gawler to Port Wakefield road non stop
Port Wakefield road to Mawson lakes , lots of traffic lights ( completely uncoordinated)
Non stop to the port or Regency Park, Then Regency Road, Pym street.
Then narrowing at The torrens bridge, back to six lanes, back to four lanes with more uncoordinated traffic lights.
Completion of the road under construction and the eastern Port Wakefield road will be enhanced by this project.
And out of interest I am wondering when T2T will actually be finished.
Went along South Road from Henley Beach Road to Grand Junction Road recently. Will the Bridge over the Torrens be widened as we go from four lanes to six, back to four, up to 8 lanes , back to four, then back to six on the over way.
