Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I thought Millswood, Hawthorn and Clapham had to be closed due to timetabling conflicts from using a single track and not enough passing loops? Maybe, but they were part of a wider overhaul of underperforming stations along all lines. Shame really, because I think those three stations had more reas...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

A bit harsh. Wasn't it that government that finally retired the "red hens" and completed the 3000 series rollout? And there were more suburban rail closures during the Dunstan era than any since. No, I think pretty mild if anything. And, though I'm not interested in traipsing too far back in histor...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

KFC and Sushi Train are opening in Rundle Square... somewhere. There is one extrnal and two internal tenancies for lease. High time Sushi Train opened on the East End, there is one one sushi offering on that side of town and it's notorious for giving people a case of food poisoning. That said, I wo...

TRYP by Wyndham to open new $35m hotel in Adelaide CBD Work on a funky new $35 million CBD hotel is to begin in October — just months after its developers were told by the state’s planning authority to improve its facade. A new 124-room, $35 million city hotel and seven-storey office complex is set...

[APP] Re: 203 North Terrace | 73m | 19 levels | Mixed Use

New application is about to be lodged. Waiting on further information. Fingers crossed its not student accom. Personally see nothing wrong with it being student accommodation, just hope it's not another shit design. Would like to see the neighbouring site get a wriggle on, had a lot of ground level...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Why are people discussing building an entire tram-line to the Airport for the sake of having a new depot? The AdeLINK proposal (if I recall correctly) had touted a depot for Thebarton... Which makes the most sense, you could easily tuck a relatively large depot behind the abundance of industrial lan...

The plans lodge to DAC explained a lot of this, I can't remember exactly but I think that these areas will be function spaces which will be good. Grand ol' style ball rooms. I hope it remains beautiful. It's sad to see how the railway station has changed over the years. When you think about it, the...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I'm really not understanding the hatred of the Thebby on here, it is a significant venue and a massive cultural contributor to this city. Of course there was going to be a response to any threat to it. If it's "a demolition that will never happen", then why can't the government just come straight o...

Visited the post office there recently... the building is absolutely beautiful and historic but AusPost have let it become run down and horrible inside. If that area serves as a hotel lobby, restaurant, or bar, it will look absolutely beautiful. The plans lodge to DAC explained a lot of this, I can...

I wonder why the glass cladding from Eastern side couldn’t have been copied to the western wall? It would have been a good design otherwise. One wonders why developers go for such a cheap alternative with our buildings? They're putting up a building on eastern end of Collins Street here in Melbourn...

So there is a change.org petition going around about "saving the Thebarton Theatre". People already have their panties in a bunch about a demolition that will never happen. Does not bode well for anything other than a completely buried tunnel through here, regardless of how well a trench might mana...

What is the source? Is this a DPTI press release or is it a news story? What is it with you and sources? It’s from The Advertiser. Quite a rude response Patrick_27.

My only query is why the BHP sign wasn't put up before the crane was dismantled? Rather than block a portion of the street off in the future with a portable crane to do the job.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Given that the tramline will be out of action for three weeks in the CBD and down to the Entertainment Centre, will the government take the opportunity to grind out the noisy corrugations that have developed, and weld up the wear the Citadis have caused on various curves. It would seem to be the pe...
