Re: SA Economy

Tasmania isn't an economic powerhouse but still they have higher population growth. It's pathetic. What is the demographic of people moving to Tasmania? Clean air and a slower pace attracts retirees. Retirees travel and spend to start with, but that reduces the further they are into retirement. The...

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

Don't forget that Salisbury Highway should be alot quieter once the Northern Connector is up and running so there shouldn't be any major problems merging/changing lanes. What Salisbury Highway traffic will move on to the Northern Connector? They are divergent routes. Are you talking about the short...

[PRO] Re: 134-136 Wright Street | ~52m | 16 Levels | Motel

The idea of a motel was originally a motoring hotel - a hotel for motorists travelling between endpoints of their journey. As such they were typically 1- or 2-storey buildings with outdoor parking, and catered typically for short stays. The definition has obviously changed over time.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Now that Gawler is expanding its a pity we don't have a third track which will allow trains to be express between Gawler and Adelaide. Is an express train between end points a good idea? Will the trains be full? Wouldn't it make more sense to run express from the station where the train fills up (w...

[PRO] Re: Goodwood/Springbank/Daws Road Intersection

Option 1: Acquire all of BI, demolish the entire thing, use a tiny portion of it and wait forever to find a developer for the rest of it. LOL wait forever! Re-zone it residential and developers will queue up for it. Option 2: Use vacant lots on Springbank Road that we already own and acquire a tiny...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

I find it quite bemusing to be naming things after people, whom by and large are actually quite embarrassed to be associated with Adelaide. Really? Jimmy Barnes, while hating Adelaide when he left because of all the bad things that had happened to him here, later said in answer to a music writer's ...

[PRO] Re: Goodwood/Springbank/Daws Road Intersection

Bedford Industries would not have been giving away their land. They likely wanted a bunch of money for their land and to have a new facility built. It may have been far more costly to move them. Of course BI would not have been giving it away, but I believe they are Government subsidized? In which ...

[PRO] Re: [PRO] Re: Goodwood/Springbank/Daws Road Intersection

Wasn't Bedford Industries happy to be sold, so that they could move to more appropriate facilities? I would have thought that would have been cheaper than compulsory aquisition of trading businesses that would have to be compensated for lack of business. Further, much of the left-over Bedford Indus...

[PRO] Re: Ovingham Level Crossing Removal

I really hope they don't go with rail under road, when there is a whole chunk of land to the north side they can use for road over rail. You joking? The original name of what is now the Bombay Bicycle Club was the Overway Hotel, so named because it was always intended to one day have an overpass th...

I’m willing to bet it’s the Libs plan that ends up being cheaper because they now don’t have to acquire and demolish all of Bedford Industries.

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

I wonder if that vacant land in the bottom left of the render will host a convenience store (or maybe a Superdeli - anyone remember them? Actually I think today they are called OTRs :? ) It would be a useful place for one, right by the station.
