Re: Adelaide Oval news and events

A couple of months back I raised the concern about Adelaide Oval slipping down the pecking order and was the for the most part howled down on this forum. Among my examples I asked why the SMA hadn’t negotiated with CA to lock in Adelaide with a permanent day/night annual Test match slot, and I also ...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

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...

Re: New Adelaide public transport hub

You can always submit your ideas to Infrastructure SA… Bear in mind some of the basic parameters I think you will find they are looking at, and unlikely to change in their planning, include: The proposed CBD underground rail loop that allows through running with the three proposed stations – Adelaid...

[PRO] Re: Torrens Road Grade Separation

With proper design, only one house (#1 Devonport Tce - marked yellow in attached), might have to go, to make way for the Torrens Rd overpass and associated ramping + earthworks. Overall that would be a good result, if practical to do so. Other changes, such as Ovingham Station, shouldn't impact on o...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

The Australia Post site was listed for sale yesterday. At just under 18,000 sqm it is the largest CBD site to be offered to the market. This is a massive opportunity for Adelaide. Hopefully there is some grand thinking by whoever the purchaser ends up being. Interesting - only yesterday an article ...

[PRO] Re: Torrens Road Grade Separation

Recently, survey works were carried out at the Torrens Road Ovingham, level crossing - not sure if they were related to the proposed overpass or to the electrification preliminary works. Assuming the overpass does go ahead, that will leave only one level crossing, at Hawker Street, between Adelaide ...

[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

As the various preliminary works continue this month in preparation of the Gawler Electrification project, we should be reminded that the original electrification plan for Adelaide's suburban railways was agreed in principle seventy (70) years ago this month - October 1949, when Sir Thomas Playford ...
