Re: Re: The Opera Centre
There is a big problem in that the road acts as a major barrier to it. The tunnel solution is interesting, but no doubt very, very costly.
The tunnel would be just below the existing road level and would be more of a road through a big basement carpark than a stand alone structure. Basements are standard procedure in new commercial builds so it wouldn’t be terribly expensive.
…….. Is a tunnel needed ?… how busy is this road really… why not as an experiment reduce it to one lane in front of Arthurs quay with a small filter for the car park entrance perhaps. Leave Francis st as 3 lanes to buffer traffic waiting at a red light at Patrick/Rutland st.
