Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

The improvements from the original plans are great. This is an iconic site which was the location of the first wharf and the first warehouse in the inner Port, opened in 1840. The hurdle of the original height limit (5 floors) looks like being negotiated through, after the other improvements. Includ...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

Seems to be an appetite for chewing up some more parklands for this. How about considering the Showgrounds? Multiple train routes and the tram already right on the doorstep, and major traffic arteries radiating in all directions. Local parking infrastructure currently servicing tens of thousands of ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Under this plan my local service goes from the current 50 minute direct service to the city to a “connector” service via West Lakes. i.e. changing buses (commuter poison). If DIPTI is using low patronage as an excuse they haven’t factored in that current patronage is low due to the ridiculous curren...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

The Port could get a massive profile boost with some creative lighting featuring the Birkenhead Bridge as the centrepiece. Upgrading the lighting on the lighthouse and surrounding buildings would also add significant vibe at least at night, for a relatively low cost.

Sadly it’s looking pretty true to the render. Was hoping for a big variation for the better but alas.

I bet these guys also voted against trams and bus lanes

The intersection needs an upgrade, its unfortunate but needed.

Move on.
Great. Move on. If it was your home and you were not adequately compensated for it’s destruction would you be happy to “move on”?

well im sure there is plenty of heavy vehicle traffic going on in the port the cluster of bottlenecks cars waiting in traffic lights from bridge just to get onto commercial road, is a continual daily dilemma, and investing further into a birkenhead bridge isnt solving any problems a simple straight...

[PRO] Re: Birkenhead Bridge Upgrade Project

Ok, I wasn't going to weigh in to this absurd idea, but what would the actual benefit be of such a bridge? I can think of only negatives. - Loss of open space - Loss of views - Encouragement of through traffic, especially heavy vehicles - Loss of trees and shrubs - Loss of potential buildings, such...

[PRO] Re: Birkenhead Bridge Upgrade Project

A better idea, instead of a new bridge, is to run a new route from the bridge, split left and right of the old church, down church street, go all the way down to the train line knock down coles and continue towards commercial rd, cut across it and past the aviation museum and link up to perkins dri...

[PRO] Re: Birkenhead Bridge Upgrade Project

Building a bridge at the end of Commercial Rd won’t happen. It would involve the removal of the Port Lighthouse and the Birkenhead Hotel, and totally wreck the amenity of that Part of Commercial Rd where all the tourist facilities, galleries, pubs and restaurants with pedestrian activity and sidewal...

[PRO] Re: Birkenhead Bridge Upgrade Project

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't part of the traffic planning for Port Adelaide to try and reduce heavy vehicles moving through the town center down Commercial Road? Moving the bridge in this way would actively encourage through-traffic. Having a greater thoroughfare would bring more people to th...

[PRO] Re: Birkenhead Bridge Upgrade Project

An upgraded bridge should prioritise pedestrian and cycling connections - make it even less desirable for vehicle use. See this attitude is why so many people can't stand cyclists. Why can't an upgrade incorporate a better outcome for both? But your first question should be is there room to accommo...
