Go­ing nowhere


CBD traf­fic re­stric­tions caused by tram track works meant that my No.142 bus spent 12 min­utes sta­tion­ary in Pul­teney St on Mon­day.

The driver fi­nally de­cided to swing right into Run­dle St rather than sit there try­ing to get to North Tce.

And other buses are also tak­ing al­ter­na­tive routes to avoid the mess. It’s been like this all week. What a stuff-up.

The chaos and lack of plan­ning has been lam­en­ta­ble and the Transport Depart­ment says traf­fic should avoid North Tce but all roads in from the north and east are the same!

I even no­ticed po­lice cars caught up in the log­jam. It’s a pity they didn’t get out and direct traf­fic like they used to back in the day. KIM HORSNELL


Sadly, it is fac­ing the wreck­ing ball to help pay for the new Royal Ade­lade Hos­pi­tal. For many years, The Repat has been a spe­cial­ist main­stay for so many peo­ple.

The clo­sure will have enor­mous con­se­quences for the re­main­ing hos­pi­tal sys­tem in SA.

It would surely make good com­mon sense to de­lay a de­ci­sion un­til af­ter the state elec­tion in March.
