[SWP] Re: SAHMRI Stage 2

Highly likely that it was contaminated soil. A common method of limiting the risk is to dig up the contaminated soil, wrap it in plastic and bury it below a new building. This prevents the contamination from leaking into surrounding soils and building over the top of it prevents it being accidently ...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

A motorway of 2 x 3 lanes plus median is say a 21m width. Allowing for 2 at grade service roads, footpaths, landscaping etc the min. width needed is say 30m? Measuring off NearMap, the T2T portion ranges from 60m wide to 70m wide footpath to footpath. Landscaping and sound walls are outside this. T...

[U/C] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

Obviously written by a Victorian. The pitch has been so bad over the last 5 years that some commentators and ex-cricketers were calling for it to be stripped of test status. The only thing going for the MCG is capacity and the guarantee of Boxing day tests. When not near capacity it is a soulless pl...

Is that a reflective film on the glass?
That's where the glass hasn't been installed (possibly due to breakage during installation or transport).

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

The cost to a company for staff isn't equal to the staff salary costs. You have to add on Super, sick leave, annual leave, payroll tax, administration costs, insurance, a building for them to work in, power, water, computers, printers, desks, chairs, software licenses, profits, etc, etc, etc. A good...

The image is from NSW not SA. Item 3a from MawsonGuy applies in SA. "(3) If there is no turn line indicating how the turn is required to be made, the driver must make the turn so the driver— (a) passes as near as practicable to the right of the centre of the intersection; " which means in a multi l...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

All that it says is I need to turn onto the left side of the road, not what lane. No turn line, so you can turn into either lane. The NSW image I showed is correct. Go ask a professional. You can turn into any lane if you're turning from a single right turning lane https://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/images...

Is that 295-297 Pirie St in the corner of that view? I think we can expect a few more apartments for sale in this building.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

OlympusAnt, are you aware of the history? SA did recognise the advantage of gauge commonality, and met with Victoria and NSW to decide which gauge to select. NSW had an Irish chief engineer who insisted on the 5ft 3 gauge which was standard in Ireland. So SA ordered broad gauge equipment. Victoria ...

The offices could remain occupied during construction as long as the appropriate safety measures are implemented such as the concrete slabs over the offices and exposed parts of the shops would need to be designed to prevent them being penetrated by a steel beam dropped by a crane.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

The bridge was holding a single car plus half a dozen students as a "dead load" total weight would have been 2-2.5 tonnes. At full pedestrian capacity the bridge would be able to accommodate 50+ people. Assuming they averaged 70kg each you're looking at 3.5 tonnes of "live load". Live load exerts fa...

You’re wrong though. Every CBD I know (yes, even in China) has an element of heritage niceties in their CBDs. I dont know who in their right mind would desire a carpark more then a cottage. There’s no “commercial value” in it. This result is not deliberate. No one demolishes buildings such as these...
