Re: 250 homes to be demolished for 650 new ones

So let's bulldoze 250 run down homes, that if renovated might actually have some character in favour of building 650 shit looking shoeboxes that in twenty years will look terrible. Great idea. These developments all depend on the quality of the landscaping and public shared treatments. If the housi...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Contracts, Service & Policy

What background or knowledge does Corey have in transport systems and planning? Absolutely zero. A minister shouldn't need to, instead relying on the expertise and advice of senior apolitical public servants within their portfolio to inform their decision making. Out here in the real world though :...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

I found this image http://sar.4mg.com/brighton/sth_brighton.JPG My best guess is the station was just south of Shoreham Road. Looks like just north of Shoreham Rd to me, the image on that site is looking south, which would make it as far away from old Brighton station and Seacliff as Marino and Mar...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

There's 2 others gone as well. This is only the tip of the iceberg that's made it to the public because someone stuffed up and it couldn't be swept under the rug. The level of corruption in politics, across all the main parties (Greens included) would blow most peoples minds. Jobs for the "family" ...

Re: News & Discussion: Other Metropolitan Developments

The corner of Park Avenue and Christie Way next to the Aberfoyle Hub, which has been a Mitre 10 of some stripe as long as I've been alive, has been demolished, and construction of a new OTR is in progress.

It is also around the corner from a Caltex.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Many of the stations had ticket offices / kiosks incorporated into their concrete central shelters. From the Gawler line in the mid 1980s I can remember Broadmeadows, Womma, Elizabeth and Elizabeth South all had these. In about 1987-88, the STA embarked upon a "station improvement programme" which ...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

Yesterday SA Treasurer Rob Lucas has confirmed that because of falling GST revenues, as a result of COVID-19, long term projects that they had not committed to or funded like the 1.3b inner city sports stadium would not be affordable in the immediate future. :( I for one am shocked that the Liberal...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

I didn't realise the Noarlunga station had been open that long, I thought I remembered it being brand new when I was a wee lad in the late 80s

For example, a trench or tunnel around Cross Road was not viable because of groundwater. Well, something has to go underground at Cross Rd if they're going to grade separate all of the Motorway, South Rd x Cross Rd, and the railway line. Labor's plan in the Scoping Report was for, basically, a dupl...

Land going back to the Botanic Gardens and the Modern Art Museum were the two biggest positives for this site, such a predictable shame

Looking forward to the state government paying the same amount of money to them to only do maintenance on the roads the transport industry double dip pays for, and nowhere else

Re: Beer Garden

Where are the Army's Chinooks based? Does it have the spare capacity to add firefighting to its role, including the different training that would be required, and increased maintenance? Townsville, where we have 10 brand new builds of the latest variant. The old models were retired in 2016, with 2 ...

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

They've also started finalising the bus "interchanges", which are really just extended bus pull ins either side of South Rd opposite the sporting grounds/Laffers triangle that aren't all that close to the new train station.
