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.

[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

I'm not really a fan of Minister Knoll but if it's the last part of the quote you're talking about then that's completely subjective and I think there are many people (including countless sporting commentators and journalists) who would class the Oval among the best sporting grounds in the country/...

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 ...

Re: Commonwealth Games in Adelaide

We seriously don’t need the commonwealth games. Just because Perth, Sydney, Gold Coast and Melbourne have had them doesn’t mean a thing.
