(A very bizarre relocation is the Macca's Glenelg franchise was relocated to Alice Springs lol)
The owner of the franchise actually did move to Alice Springs (while his wife stayed as a single term Labor MP).

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Contracts, Service & Policy

It's so very Adelaide that while cities around the world are seeing the growth in cycling during Covid-19 and using it as an opportunity to, at least on a trial basis, increase cycling infrastructure, we're digging in on cars even more and using it as an excuse to delay already planned cycling proje...

Any word on the former City Harris Scarfe? Are Spotlight going to reopen the store?
Renew Adelaide are looking after some of the space. I imagine any plans have been delayed though.

[PRO] Re: Ovingham Level Crossing Removal | $231m

Ignoring the argument about whether bikes should be accommodated at all (despite the massive reserve along the north side), the bigger issue is that you go from fully separated bike lane over the bridge, to no lane and being actively funnelled into traffic. That's just utterly dangerous.

[PRO] Re: 51 Pirie Street | ~86m | 21 Levels | Hyatt

In most cases, preserving a building is not about the interior preservation but the external. Her Majesty's Theatre is a case in point of this. It's about the street-scape. It also reduces "heritage" to the equivalent of a movie studio backlot. Maybe, but it's still better than not trying at all. A...

[PRO] Re: Ovingham Level Crossing Removal | $231m

It is depicting a widened Torrens Road though. Torrens Rd is two lanes each way, and the video depicts a new median strip and a right turn lane from Torrens Rd onto Chief St (not to mention a much wider nature strip on the south side). My issue is that you can't go from seperated bike lane, to "fuck...

Just a gentle reminder that the 1927 building is mostly all gone already — all that remains is the facade. The 80s brutalist addition on the corner has more remaining heritage value.

[PRO] Re: Ovingham Level Crossing Removal | $231m

Overall, it looks pretty good, and solves most of the tricky parts. Two three stick out though: Why not join up Drayton St and Exeter Tce under the bridge? New station platforms, but only those shitty bus stop shelters? Bravo on the (seperated?) bike lane over the bridge, but the lane completely dis...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Contracts, Service & Policy

The only reason I can see for maintaining their own, is to remove dependence on third parties — who they have no control over how well they implement it and how they price it.

Both Google Maps and Apple Maps have Adelaide Metro transit information though, and Next There is excellent.

Not to defend the building, because it's pretty average, but how can a six-storey building on a lot zoned for up to eight be considered an overdevelopment?

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

I was under the impression we already had a parklands trail? There's an ochre-coloured path completed over the last 15 years or so. This proposal does appear to be a shorter loop, though it's not clear to me how distinct it is from the existing trail. I welcome investment in the parklands, I just h...
