Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

For what I can remember of 1980, there would have been ticket offices at Bowden, Woodville and Glanville on the Outer Harbour line for example.....the rest of the stations would have been unstaffed. This was typical of the Adelaide train network at the time. That 1980 map makes the train network mu...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

They're just fixing up the paving on this stretch. Across the road (between KW and Gawler Pl) there will be new trees, gardens and a new pavement after the gasworks are completed.

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

The section of Nth Tce between King William and Kintore was re-paved for the first time in 2010 as part of the boulevard masterplan. Most of this was only laid on sand and not on a concrete base and hence why the granite and other stone rectangular pavers sometimes crack. If you look at the pavement...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

It's baffling how it came about that this section has a different design to the other North Terrace sections. Looking at Andy's great pictures there is some continuity with pavement width, lighting and tree choice but that's about it. Why couldn't there been more coordination between the City Counci...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

Seven News Adelaide has a good little story on the current works on their Twitter feed - was on Thursday's news I guess too. Was actually nice to see the Lord Mayor and the Infrastructure Minister spruiking the end result. I kind of wish there was a bit more engagement with the public about the work...

[PRO] Re: Ovingham Level Crossing Removal | $231m

Cheers for the updates on this all - but is there any actual evidence that Ovingham station itself will be touched, except for the access ramps which will probably need to be reconfigured? All the State Government's language on this speaks of the benefits to road users only. There are far worse stat...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

Hard to believe the Riverside Centre is only 30 years old, really. I completely get that the Riverside Centre and the InterContinental and other buildings in the ASER project are not to everybody's taste, and there is the valid claim that they also partly enroach on the parklands. That said, I don't...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

I think the mid-term future for the rail corridor could lie somewhere between all the recent posts on here - how about extending Adelaide Metro services one more stop to Concordia from Gawler Central, integrating the new station with a bus interchange that would serve both LinkSA and private operato...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

I'm sure they would have all worked together to come up with the plan they have now. But they (the private and the public sector) would be coming in looking to spend as little as possbile. For Walker and Skycity it would be a case of knowing that this would not be one of their landmark projects, an...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

I think maybe it's not clear as to who will pay for and operate what in this project. From what I can tell, Walker Corp. will own and operate the office tower, the car park and the retail building. The State Government will own and operate the plaza space (which is why they will essentially be payin...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

The Adelaide Crows (AFC) have put on hold indefinitely their proposal for the redevelopment of the Aquatic Centre site. The detail of the announcement seems to go further with the words "officially withdraw" included. The full statement is on the AFC's hompage.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Both tram lines are operating at a good frequency as is, which is very similar to other light rail services around the world. Exactly. I'd love to know how the new private operator will increase frequency, iron out all the bumpy sections of track mentioned above and 'optimise customer services' sin...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Since one of the main selling points of the contracts by the State Liberal Government is that they will deliver 'better integration of services', yet they also claim that they will continue to own the infrastructure, set the fares and decide the services, one does really wonder what has been prevent...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

I knew that the Adelaide Railway Station had been given some money in the last State Budget, but I had no idea that the changes and improvements were this extensive. It's also, dare I say for Adelaide, unusual for this much consideration of historical tradition to go into a project. If they can some...
