Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

What does it look like is happening to the new site? Presumably they will still sell Holdens for a few more months, and continue the service and parts department much longer. That part sure, but it seems like even GM branded dealerships may not be a thing going forward now, apparently at most Austr...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

City Holden has started its Relocation Sale after trading in the same spot on Grenfell Street for many generations. Bit more than just a relocation now I'd wager What does it look like is happening to the new site? Presumably they will still sell Holdens for a few more months, and continue the serv...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

I'm not buying into this debate yet because it's a rehash of previous arguments. But a couple people have said the the Adelaide Entertainment Centre is privately owned. It's not. It's run by a public corporation -- the Adelaide Venue Management Corporation, which also runs the Convention Centre and...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

My understanding of the master plan was that they were going to drop 9 holes from the north course, and reconfigure to 3 x 9 holes which could be matched up in different ways (with the Par 3 untouched). I'm pretty sure they have to keep the public par 3 course there as the council price for the oth...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

Both ideas are flawed. The Memorial Drive option is too small. I think 12,000-15,000 needs to be the size of any new indoor arena, otherwise we may as well just keep the AEC. Also, it sounds like Memorial Drive is going to rely heavily on Adelaide Oval facilities and staff. This will result in job ...

[VIS] Re: A new inner-city stadium is one of a raft of big ticket projects on the government's agenda this year.

We ought to be against the SMA plan out of principle, because those greedy bastards already have enough of a stranglehold without handing them all the other sports as well. On top of that, none of the idiots in charge seem to have grasped that just because they're all played on rectangles, doesn't m...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

There are no more buses from the 80s... They should not be on the road more than 25 years, making the oldest bus from 1995. All buses are now air-conditioned and 98% are wheelchair accessible. Correct. The last of the SL202's are the last of the non-accessible buses. They'll be retired by the end o...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

All we've seen under Liberals is cuts to bus services and proposals to cut bus stops. I actually recall SA Labor were doing so well increasing patronage that they had to lease buses from interstate to keep up with demand. Whilst interest rates are low the current government should replace those bus...

Re: Adelaide Oval news and events

As I mentioned previously, the initiative taken to get Adelaide Oval the first day/night test Match should have been followed through by the SA Govt & SMA to negotiate a deal with Cricket Australia so that Adelaide be given a permanent slot for the first weekend in school holidays in December, & gi...
