This sounds blizzare, but I'm actually looking forward to this intersection being fixed.
Not bizarre at all. I'm looking forward to it too. All signalised dog-leg intersections on major thoroughfares should be removed.
Grange Rd/Holbrooks Rd/East Tce should be next

Re: Beer Garden

We've done a lot more testing than other countries. You would expect to find more positives just through the sheer number of tests.

Our death rate is quite low.

Most cases have been imported or from that Ruby Princess debacle.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

No bus on South Rd from that map. Surely the 719 is staying.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

People are really struggling with reading comprehension here. Skybus will only be delivering airside, shuttle services not city connections. Although why the airport feels the need to outsource such basic operations is an interesting question. Yeah that is very interesting indeed. There's only 2 sh...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

AAL letting Skybus do the services is just AAL doing their usual thing. They are abandoning the public bus which works fine so they can get more money. I bet they'll take a fair bit of commission from Skybus. Get lost, Skybus. A good service for Melbourne but ridiculously overpriced. You think that'...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

We only have one super marginal federal seat. This makes it harder to get federal money. It's always been like that.

Re: Beer Garden

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

There needs to be more routes that go straight through the city on say Wakefield Rd towards the airport, only making a few stops.

Re: Beer Garden

I wonder if one potential positive to this will be an increase in flexible working across the board? So many organisations all over the world who have never really embraced remote working (mine included) are now being forced into this by the current situation. Once it becomes apparent that many job...
