Re: Petrol Station Owners

As cigarettes are phased out Smokemarts did not solely depend on e-cigarettes, they moved more in to the gift market. That said, I've always wondered about who the fuck buys gifts from a smoke shop, or even worse, the weird gift section that all chemists seem to have. Obviously people do, or they w...

Re: Petrol Station Owners

As bits said, they're not really "petrol stations" any more. Both are becoming more convenience stores, including fast food, along with other car related services like the big car washes.

[PRO] Re: Torrens Road Grade Separation

“Not within the scope of the project” is pretty much DPTIs mission statement. That is true, haha. I think they do worry if they make the project too big, it would affect too many people = less community support. Infrastructure projects are generally toned down unless either the government really wa...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

'Left-turn slip lanes to be removed at Adelaide intersections following four pedestrian deaths' reports ABC News It's about bloody time, but I'd note there are some other dangerous ones not mentioned for removal.

[VIS] Re: 181 Waymouth Street | ~60m | 17 Levels | Apartments
