Re: [VIS] New Concert Hall

I completely disagree. This will ruin the view of the Festival Theatre from King William St and close off all open space for the plaza. Dreadful location. Agreed. Think that area would be too crowded with a concert hall in there, but if that location had to be used I would have those concert hall a...

Re: Adelaide Fringe 2020 (Video)

but I'm disappointed the Royal Croquet Club is still being shoehorned into the Adelaide Uni grounds, because I much preferred the open and central Victoria Square setting from several year ago. Oh well, I heard it was still very popular though. I much prefer the current incarnation of RCC (it's not...

[APP] Re: Peregrine HQ | 38m | 8 levels | Kensington

this building is completely out of place for this site Apart from the helipad is it out of place? There are enough 7-8 story developments happening in and around The Parade now to justify the opposite opinion. Not on that side of Portrush Road there isn't Except the existing church spire.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

They should make the Glenelg tram travel to the Entertainment Centre at all times and increase daytime frequency to every 8 minutes. The Botanic gardens service should just run to the RAH but every 15 minutes during the day. I'd like to keep the Botanic-Ent Centre line to a maximum of every 10mins,...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Quotes from Cr Hyde confirm he's a Grade-A disingenuous arsehole. He said a bikeway along Grote and Wakefield streets would attract people who are “probably a bit of a hipster with a baguette sticking out of their basket” to the Central Market. “I’m not trying to frustrate this, I’m trying to give y...

Re: Superloop 500

Formula-E would be a perfect fit — the Adelaide Street Circuit is exactly the kind of track they like, and it straddles our renewable energy ambitions with our car making and motorsport history. You're more limited with support races though, I believe they won't share a track with ICE categories. It...

Re: News & Discussion: Cycling

Lets not forget that the so called "strong trader backlash" against the Flinders St bike path in 2016 was basically one cafe owner who was either mates with or duped by Alex Antic into commenting in the media. And, who has since moved (to Franklin St to be fair, but now has only loading zones and n...

Yup. Read the headline, and suckered right in. Mission accomplished.

Re: News & Discussion: Cycling

Following on from the InDaily article, The Advertiser has taken a much more sensationalist approach and focused on the number of car parks that would be lost — not on the route that both the last report and the relevant cycling bodies prefer (Flinders/Franklin) — but the one a few idiot councillors ...

Re: News & Discussion: Cycling

0.6% of road funding is utterly pathetic. And the fact that they are still debating about what road the E-W route should be on, despite it being blatantly clear in a 3 year old report, is almost as embarrassing as the fact we're well into the third term of council since the N-S route began and it's ...
