Re: [Sept/Oct 2020] SA transport observations

The formatting of the list of closures seems to have gone awry. The full line closures Adelaide - Gawler Central are during the school holidays (Sep/Oct 20, Jan, Apr, July, Sep/Oct 21). The partial closures are at other times and (I guess) will continue to be weekday late evenings and overnight as ...

It also makes it easier for the transit apps to show the full route, not just the stops up to the point where the bus changes number (like 1 Anzac Highway or 1 Port Ro...
