[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

So essentially the S/E Freeway would be diverted and extended? With that last little bit of the existing freeway (by the toll gate) just becoming an access road for traffic coming off of Cross and Portrush Road(s)?

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Waewick wrote Unless we get China money there will never be a decent train system in Adelaide. Its too easy to kill on economics. Like the tram system, the train system doesn't service the densely populated parts of Adelaide so it'll never get the patronage. Adelaide will never get a decent train s...

[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

Given Adelaidean and Realm are fairly set back in this airport view is it likely they may not appear in line with Westpac building when completed? Or is the ground slightly higher. Have marked up a red line where I thought they may top out around. Adelaide is a relatively flat isn't it? So wouldn't...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

27/7/2019Work progressing on Adelaide south Stop in king William S traffic will be reduced to 2 lanes only with right hand turns only permitted at selected intersections and the loss of parking. As it should, aside from the reduction in right hand turns, I've never understood why this portion of KW...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Rossi's proposal wasn't to use the existing Freight corridor but rather to build a viaduct from Mitcham Station through Brown Hill Creek and connect it with the freeway and run if down the centre. This is a point I was advocating for only a few pages back and was told that this kind of proposal wasn...

[PRO] Re: Aldinga Rail Extension | $800m

Heard on the grape vine last week that the entire Aldinga extension is dead in the water, state and fed not interested in funding it Contemptible if true. Not surprised, there are higher priorities for our rail networks and buses services the area from Seaford to Aldinga just fine. Besides, did any...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

I give it six months at the most. Why the centre management would allow a food-court-esque type shopfront to exist in the retail section of their centre is beyond me.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I thought Millswood, Hawthorn and Clapham had to be closed due to timetabling conflicts from using a single track and not enough passing loops? Maybe, but they were part of a wider overhaul of underperforming stations along all lines. Shame really, because I think those three stations had more reas...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

A bit harsh. Wasn't it that government that finally retired the "red hens" and completed the 3000 series rollout? And there were more suburban rail closures during the Dunstan era than any since. No, I think pretty mild if anything. And, though I'm not interested in traipsing too far back in histor...

KFC and Sushi Train are opening in Rundle Square... somewhere. There is one extrnal and two internal tenancies for lease. High time Sushi Train opened on the East End, there is one one sushi offering on that side of town and it's notorious for giving people a case of food poisoning. That said, I wo...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Why are people discussing building an entire tram-line to the Airport for the sake of having a new depot? The AdeLINK proposal (if I recall correctly) had touted a depot for Thebarton... Which makes the most sense, you could easily tuck a relatively large depot behind the abundance of industrial lan...

The plans lodge to DAC explained a lot of this, I can't remember exactly but I think that these areas will be function spaces which will be good. Grand ol' style ball rooms. I hope it remains beautiful. It's sad to see how the railway station has changed over the years. When you think about it, the...
