[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Whatever they do, it's crucial it's at least 3x3 lanes. We already made the mistake decades ago with not implementing the MATS plan, let's not repeat history by not future proofing this motorway. Not implementing the MATS plan was definitely not a mistake, I"m pretty sure the residents of Hindmarsh...

Very bland finish for what are supposedly upmarket apartments.
That is one for the render v reality thread on SSC

[COM] Re: Oaklands Crossing | $174m

So wondering when anything like this will ever be done on the Northern line.
I guess they need to start with electrification first...

The Gawler line is really neglected when you see infrastructure like this being build on the Seaford line..

Re: News & Developments: Bowden TOD

Holy crap, we as a society have become so lazy that we can't walk 400m.
No wonder we are fat!

And there is a pedestrian crossing under the road with the train so it isn't 'all the way' down at Port Road

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Not directly linked to Adelaide trams but interesting FYI anyway ... the contract price for the 12km Parramatta light rail is an eye-watering $2.4bn (including all associated works)!! http://www.parramattalightrail.nsw.gov.au/news/parramatta-light-rail-contracts-signed Interesting tracks in that co...

[/quote] While I am at it, the crowds were pathetic at the test match. Only 10,000 there today and about 30,000 on saturday. I thought the Adelaide test was meant to be popular. I know the weather wasn't great, but after the attendance that they had last year the numbers this year were a disgrace. [...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

In Canberra and as I type am looking at their tram line down Northbourne Avenue. Looks fantastic and what I would expect a tram down the middle of Port Road to look like. Most all major infrastructure is in place but it still looks a couple of months off being ready. John Holland are the contractors...
