[SWP] Re: SAHMRI Stage 2

I assume this crane is for the site some large steel trusses & tanks are being lifted into the RAH - looks like water tanks or boilers maybe? that blue-green instant grass spray was sprayed all over the SAHMRI 2 site last Friday, so I'm guessing that might mean not much will happen for a while http...

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

There's no reason Peter Van couldn't wrangle a deal with the government to relocate to a new building on the corner next to the high school where the existing road will be removed. Might work out cheaper for the government. Would be a shame to lose the green space though. How about the area where t...

Re: News & Discussion: Low/Mid-Rise CBD Development

Adelaide Uni has added extra floors to all three of its medical school buildings. In the 1950's (I think) the original med school building (now Helen Mayo South building) on Frome Rd was extended and a 6th floor added (it's hard to tell, but you can see a subtle difference in the masonry compared to...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

What criteria was that list founded on? Not sure how Adelaide is so low by comparison to Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. Considering Perth and Sydney have separate buildings for their domestic and international terminals, meanwhile Melbourne has one of the most dated and maze-like terminal in Australi...

[SWP] Re: SAHMRI Stage 2

It's probably only me, but I always liked the brutalist bunker type design of the control centre, with its angled glass windows. as a kid I always liked seeing it - it was about the most futuristic looking building I knew of in Adelaide. The new building looks fantastic, but I will miss the control...

A 26 tonne load limit to be imposed on the King William Rd bridge, with significant repairs needed within the next decade. I guess this makes a tramline into North Adelaide contingent on the bridge being repaired first. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-09-04/king-william-road-adelaide-bridge-might-...

[U/C] Re: Brickworks Redevelopment | $70m

Hang on didn’t the revamp only just happen? Why so much change already? Probably because it's not doing great. The Woolworths and Dan Murphy's are generally busy, and a few of the eateries, but the rest of the centre struggles. There's still a couple of tenancies that have never been filled. I real...

I thought that cemetery is historical? Pretty sure all cemetaries would be historical. I think each plot is bought for a pre determined number of years (20/50/100) Once this period has elapsed if nobody decides to 'renew' for lack of a better word, the plot can be excavated and reused. Perhaps it i...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

These emergency generators are essentially modified aircraft engines (which shows just much power a modern passenger jet requires!). But it also suggests 25 years is probably about their expected lifespan, so they might be coming out of lease just as they need decommissioning (if they're still in us...

They've got a tram corridor in mind - that pleases me.
In the 2014 report they actually called it a tram corridor. "High capacity public transport" sounds like something the PR team came up with so they could avoid all mention of the dreaded "T" word in the current report.

A Qantas 747 (flight QFA1364) just flew past my work window on approach to Adelaide AP, (coming from Rockhampton :?: Previous to that it flew an odd looking track from Sydney to Rockhampton this morning). Some kind of special charter flight? Not often you see a Qantas widebody gracing our skies thes...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Monarto failed, because just as it was to get off the ground, population growth, which had been phenomenal in the post war years, suddenly ground to a halt in the 70's, the oil crises hit, fuel skyrocketed, and a far flung satellite city was not deemed attractive under such circumstances. A change ...

As for automation, there are two thoughts on the progress of this. Although some experts assume traffic will decrease with autonomous vehicles, there is another train of thought that demand for high speed freeway style roads will actually increase as the autonomous vehicles will require this to rea...
