Yup, not happy either. It sounds like they seriously stuffed up the widening in one section.
My big worry is that after they finish that, along comes the F3 to M2 tunnel and we'll get kicked off again!

I have enjoyed whizzing past all the cars stuck in congestion most afternoons. Traffic seems to snake back from Pennant Hills Rd through the Norfolk Tunnel and towards Browns Waterhole.
I get a rather smug feeling when I see the flashing signs saying "Reduced Speed due to Congestion". Wait, wasn't the upgrade supposed to fix that?

Same here :lol: :lol: $900+ million spent and $6+ per vehicle every trip and they've moved the pinch point 2 km west. Transurban, moving Sydney into the 1930s.......

Here's a little vid of part of my arvo commute yesterday (speed at 800%).

It is a sight to behold. Nothing more smug than averaging a higher speed than done fancy euro car in the adjacent lane. I have been sick the last few weeks, but prior to that I managed 37.5km/h avg on my slow bike with panniers.
