Only time will tell.
The South Rd upgrade that is the bit from Darlington to the Gallipoli underpass has waited in the wings while various governments have discuss a way forward. This is one of two remaining links that remain unchanged,. I have heard many scenarios including a significant increase in the number or lanes and the access of Black Forest residents to and from South Rd. It seems that one of the problems has been the cost to purchase land on either side of South Rd. This even bit some back of the envelope calculations would significantly add to the cost of construction. But today the new government is prepared to cost a tunnel, that would require far less, if any acquisition.
Imagine the possibilities for South Rd if it were just a suburban street when all this was completed. It might regenerate the shops, let the Glandore kids get safely to Black Forest PS and give everyone else a break from traffic noise. This could be the win: win residents have been looking for, it might even make South Rd the sort of place that apartment living starts to look acceptable.
