These cottages are worth saving or "incorporating" into the "motel" development.

Re: News & Discussion: Other Metropolitan Developments

As I said....sell the block to a developer who can can build 40 new apartments and the government can buy 10 at "build" cost. Then the government uses the profit from the sale of the land and invests in another development somewhere else ( ie buys 5 apartments at cost price by "investing" with the d...

Re: News & Discussion: Other Metropolitan Developments

There is a dilapidated block of Housing Trust apartments awaiting renovation in Parkside. The state government could redevelop this site, building new apartments for sale and incorporating some "social housing". Sell the land to developers, with a caveat stipulating that 10 of the new apartments mus...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The trains is run by a public sector company whereas the buses is run by a private sector company, so in theory Southlink don't want passengers to catch the train they want them to catch their bus. The fare revenue goes to the SA government, the private operator is paid on the grounds of providing ...

A motel?......a new motel in the CBD?

Motels were really really cheap 1 story hotels we built in the suburbs in the 1960's 70's and 80's.

Let's hope this is NOT a really cheap and nasty hotel for the CBD.

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

Either way, I doubt the Seaford Line will have all trains run express from Woodlands Park. The inner portion still needs a decent frequency, so I imagine that, if both the Flinders and Seaford lines will run at a 30 minute frequency at night and on weekends, they will combine for a 15 minute freque...

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

I think you're overestimating the amount of traffic in the area. In all the times I've driven through I've rarely encountered a single car in the area. This, plus the fact that the Flinders Line will have a low frequency, makes grade separation pointless. I was hoping for something better regarding...
