THE new Adelaide Airport has had plenty written about its fuel delivery dramas and problems with access for regional airlines, but the road access has had much less discussion.
The lack of forward thinking for a purpose-built facility boggles the mind, given that it has been so long in the planning and implementation.
Having the double-storey setup has shown its worth in Sydney and Melbourne, but surely the traffic-flow lessons learned at those airports could have been put into place here. The lanes entering the facility are poorly laid out and the lane signage is far from clear.
The new Adelaide Airport was supposed to be a world-class facility, an entry-point to the state that gave visitors a first-rate first impression of Adelaide and SA. It's not.
