Airport Road Project a Disaster. Next Time Build the Rail Line

Oooops

 

Well it was triumphed as getting traffic moving to the airport. Yesterday at 6am the Kirkbride/SH20A underpass was opened to traffic and at 6:15am it went all to crap:

 

 

This is this morning:

SH20A traffic measurement at 7am 30/8/2017

 

And of course from earlier this year:

Essentially the underpass at Kirkbride Road gets you to the next jam one kilometre down the road while cutting off an access road for logistic trucks to the main road(Montgomerie Road is now closed from SH20A).

 

Maybe building that Airport Line in the first place might have saved a lot of this hassle….
