Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

Cutting to the chase what does the forum think the actual outcome will be at the end of this? Does the forum think the critics are more vocal and pro-active and will succeed or is the AFC and it's supporter base too strong/powerful and will get their way? To me it all kind of feels like deja-vu wit...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

As people from the council areas of Prospect, Walkerville & Charles Sturt seem to be the most vocal about keeping the Aquatic Centre as is, maybe their councils should contribute to the ongoing running costs? Or ACC could charge double the entry price to cover the current losses? For the politician...

Re: News & Discussion: Other Transport Projects

The positives out of this: The study reinforces a need for a NS MW to SE FW connection – that should be added to Infrastructure SA’s list of priorities and now be part of the NS MW project planning. If trucks are carrying more of the freight, that further supports the argument for a continual duplic...

Re: Adelaide Oval news and events

The State Government pulled the pin on the Commonwealth Games bid a few months ago, now they have pulled the pin on the option to host a Bledisloe Cup at AO. Two significant events not worthy of AO or tourism benefit to SA, in their estimation. On top of the SMA failing to secure the return of EPL, ...

[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

Hardly recognise Adelaide in that photo - loving the foreground and background combo! And to think that the previous labor government preferred to waste money on a motorsport festival and a pathetic fashion festival which nobody cared about. Off topic but as you mentioned motor racing, let’s not fo...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

A medium-term option has been considered to remove The Overland as a standalone service and extend The Ghan as a full service to a Melbourne-Darwin route. Long term, if an Adelaide rail bypass is ever built, is an option to run The Ghan on the bypass around Adelaide & no longer into it), & move the ...

Re: Adelaide Oval news and events

I’ve said all this before over recent months in these forums, so I will brief. Adelaide Oval redevelopment is the best thing that has happened since the Formula One GP was held here. AO redevelopment date is great for Stage One, but in my opinion (and there are plenty who share this view behind the ...

So the rumour mill was correct - now publicly announced - Hassell architects plan to wind down their Adelaide office - greener fields and all that... Doesn't do much for development confidence when an 80 year presence pulls the plug locally so they can concentrate on the big stuff elsewhere. Hassell...
