[COM] Re: What next for Victoria Square?

Difference is, that this is one of the main routes connecting the eastern and western suburbs. Question is, should it be? The city should be planned as the destination itself, not as a something simply to pass through. Our ring routes are sufficient enough for the time being, and can be improved if...

However, it's clear that nothing great will ever be achieved unless the State Government takes the lead. The ACC simply doesn't have the c...

Re: #Article: Rann to retire in 10 years.

I had expected an announcement to made about his retirement plans. It is quite an unsual thing to do, and something I don't think is really necessary (especially when you consider that it's just a statement of his (now) intentions ). However, insofar as it sends the message that Rann is not addicted...
