yeah yeah fucking get over it people and lets get back on topic already :bash:You should give credit to who took the pictures...
the only possible place for the interchange would be at the Footscray/Dynon road area. Just build the ramps above the railyards. The only challenge would be the positioning of the tunnel portals taking into account the grades from the elevated ramps to underground and getting around the maze of train tracks.ZH836301 said:And I'd love to see how they propose to link it with Citylink - probably by destroying the housing commission parkland.
well thats the whole point. AN interchange would be too difficult to build at Racecourse Rd. Theres the housing blocks in the way and built up area to the east. Thats why I'm saying that around Footsscray Road would be the only possible solution. Even then you have to work around the very complex rail freight hub.Well I'll start you off - that land is far too valuable to be wasted with a massive interchange. Anyway, if you even read your own article you would see Macquarie wants to join it at Racecourse Rd, next to the Housing Commission estate.
building the on/off ramp portals in the centre median of Alexander Pde? It'll likely be somethng similar to the ED in Sydney.With interchanges at Royal Parade and Nicholson St - again I'd love to see how they can work this without creating a fugly mess. Macquarie can fug off back to Sydney for all I care.
that's why they want interchanges at Nicholson St and Royal Pde. Provide alternative access routes into the CBDSince when has Melbourne had "east-west traffic woes"? The biggest traffic problem is that everyone is trying to get into the CBD, not trying to go across it...that's not going to be solved by useless new freeways.
Have you read Michelle Zeibots' work yet?that's why they want interchanges at Nicholson St and Royal Pde. Provide alternative access routes into the CBD
It's about 2km from the end of the Eastern Fwy to Nicholson, and about 3km to Royal Parade. 3km of extra freeway won't make much difference, if any, to commuters wanting to get to the city - especially considering the Eastern isn't that congested upto Royal Pde anyway. Of course, this is completely ignoring the effect a freeway and freeway interchanges will have on the area, particularly around Royal Parade. There's no room in the median strip at either Nicholson or Royal for an interchange of any sort.that's why they want interchanges at Nicholson St and Royal Pde.
