Re: News & Developments: Bowden TOD

Spend millions to put a train line under a roadway to reduce congestion, but then go and put up a signalized pedestrian crossing on the same road. Gotta be Adelaide.

Interesting that the unions don't seem to complain about another expansion to an already massive shopping precinct, which will bring in even more big chain stores, international ones at that. Somehow deregulated shopping hours, or longer shopping hours, will hurt small business and they are all ove...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

If the libs were smart, they would have proposed a space museum where the new modern art gallery was proposed that connects to this proposal. Something with striking architecture, that is a world-class facility that exhibits all things astronomy and science. This site needs direction, a clear visio...

Re: The Federal Politics Thread

Not that a nation of 25 million people needs it's own space agency, but this is good news for jobs and the local economy. I'm assuming this will be headquartered at Lot 14? Why not? That's like saying we don't need a police force, just let some random groups do the policing work. A space agency bri...

[U/C] Re: [U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

This was discussed before. Concrete roads are more expensive but have reduced maintainance costs, especially for roads that see a high amount of truck usage Concrete roads also have less rolling resistance than asphalt roads. One reason for their relative unpopularity is that a lot of motorways bui...

Several bus routes go through suburban streets, Rev. Look at the Network Map on the AdMet website.
Yeh I know, but they shouldn’t.
There’s enough main and arterial roads for buses.

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I still think the most elegant solution to the 230/232 problem is to just split them and have one run down all the way down Days Road to Torrens Road and the other run further down Regency Road and then through the backstreets on the East side of South Road and then onto Harrison Street. Something ...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

As much as they are unique asset, the parklands have been a hindrance to Adelaide's growth. Especially when it comes to this mob. That's a bullshit excuse... There are plenty of places that could be developed in the CBD and inner city suburbs. That's like saying heritage is a hindrance on Adelaide'...
