[APP] Re: PRO: Coles Norwood Redevelopment | 8 Lvls

Anyone have the plans (a link) for this development now that it has been approved? Cheers P.S. Anyone know whether some of the trees to be removed can be replanted. I'm referring to the plane trees. Here's the link: https://www.saplanningcommission.sa.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0014/624101/2.2.3...

The latest DPTI update has some new video footage of the Northern Connector. Not sure when the footage was taken.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The Gawler line is 42km long and the Seaford line is 36km, I don't see why people are calling for a third track on the Gawler line and not the Seaford line. Both don't need a third line, what they need is regular services and an underground city tunnel linking the two up. The Gawler line also has n...

Re: SA Economy

A lot of people are moving to Tasmania for the better air quality and lower temperatures, I guess you could call them climate refugees. They might also prefer the slower pace of Hobart and Launceston compared to Melbourne or Sydney. I don't think people are moving there for jobs unless it's in touri...

Dry Creek Station used to be used like that. I assume it was a hangover from trains to Northfield being interleaved with the ones from Gawler. There was a third track to facilitate the transfers. It may even have had island platforms both sides so transfers either way could be straight across. Just...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

That analysis is fine in theory, but in reality it is a lot more complex. There is also the annoyance factor, people for some reason prefer to catch express services over all stop services even if there is a longer wait for departure. For example, I have seen people catch a later express train than ...

Re: News & Developments: Prospect

As posted in the other thread, Kaufland has left the Australian market. Hopefully we will get a better proposal now that integrates better with the train station.

The meals are reasonably priced, this will be a good place to go before heading home on the train.

I actually like the wood, even if it is the final finish. Something a bit different than just concrete and glass. It adds a nice texture and natural finish.
