Re: Adelaide Oval news and events

The English Premier League are looking at options to finish their season under lock down. It is looking at basing all 20 teams in one city to play the remaining games of the season. A significant economic boost to any city involved, in immediate $$$ and international exposure on TV for future touris...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

In this vision there would only be one railway station – Tanunda. Tanunda could be upgraded into a transport & destination hub. It is the main historic township of the valley; it does have Chateau Tanunda next to the station and the ICC approved cricket oval on the grounds. To be honest, I've never...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

I would just like to point out that SANTOS is not "packing up and leaving". It is merely shifting staff around the country, and the number of people employed in the Adelaide office(s) will remain the same. They will just be different staff. I also doubt that SANTOS will be the tenant here as they o...

Re: Website not Secure?

For the past week or so, McAfee Firewall is blocking me access to this site.

It keeps reporting an intrusion is being detected, I have to manually allow each time.

This is the only site the Firewall keeps blocking.

Anyone else having this issue?

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

I'm not sure how that tourist train to the Barossa world work though. There would still need to be buses transporting the people from the train stations to the wineries. I think most tourists would prefer to go winery to winery on a tour bus as they do now. I doubt the cost to operate the train wor...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

Looks like the battle to preserve the rail corridor between Tanunda and Nuriootpa has been lost. Having previously lost the line from Nuriootpa to Angaston, and the other branch line from Lights Pass to Truro years before that, and as Penrice Quarry hasn't rail stoned to Port Adelaide in recent yea...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

Apparently the Adelaide City Council have decided to approach the Federal and State Governments, in addition to the surrounding Metropolitan Councils, for funding to consider an upgrade of the North Adelaide Aquatic Centre. It seems the ACC is not prepared to foot the cost alone to either maintain a...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

The problem with that section of parklands is the Government alienated it soon after the city plan was completed in 1837 - 380 acres of it was conveyed to the government for use of buildings or for any purpose it saw fit. This is why the section between North terrace and the River Torrens from the e...

Re: News & Discussion: Other Transport Projects

This is a crap idea that has come back around again, so they suggest moving the through heavy traffic away from Portrush Road to Grand Junction Road through a different set of suburban intersections of another suburban main road, not really solving anything. How about finishing the NS MW and buildin...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

If there was to be a Two Wells Adelaide Metro train service then why not build a new line north of Dry Creek leaving the current Salisbury Two Wells train line as freight only. The new line could head north from Dry creek skirting between the North South motorway and just west of suburbia at Salisb...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

Ahh, the Adelaide Cuty Council and its naysaying fellow travellers. Dithered again, in the face if someone wanting to improve the sad old parklands. Suppose they will go cap in hand to the government to bail them out if this, and still get a half arsed outcome of the least effort possible. But hey,...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Don’t let Anne Moran get under your skin – she is for the most part irrelevant, not many people take her seriously. Every so often she takes a contrarian view on key issues of the day to make sure her name appears regularly in the media, to ensure her profile is kept up. I wouldn’t worry too much ab...
