Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

People aren't gonna come all the way from Europe or North America just to visit Adelaide. They're gonna start in Melbourne or Sydney and work across.

Many tourists drive the Great Ocean Road and stop here for a couple of days, then go on to Uluru or Perth.

Ask the Greens about that one.

They shut down the refineries and the coal fired power stations.

The worst intersection in the state is just going to get even worse.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The simple fact is that trains work good when they're on the flats and not so when there's even a small hill.

You'll never get trains through the Adelaide Hills any faster than they currently are without some tunnel or major earthworks. We just don't have the money or necessity to do such a thing.
