Re: U/C: Electrification & Upgrade of the Adelaide Rail Network

Having grown up in the suburb, nothing bugs me more than it being called 'Christies Downs'. No 'S' on the end of Christie PeFe with Christie Downs.

Re: Interactive maps of the former tramway network

Some of those photos at the stops are incredible, compared to how those same roads and intersections look today. Fascinating maps and a great idea, thanks for posting.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

So if the diagram is accurate we won't have a full monty at the KWS and North Tce intersection? Looks as though three corners covered only? Great info though

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway Revitalisation Projects

Work on Topham Mall is well underway as part of the Market to Riverbank Link project. Looks as though services and utilities are being shifted or upgraded. Signage on fences around the work show it is for the upgrade project.
