[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

Why? When the Hill sees larger crowds for footy than for cricket? Where's the evidence that we need more seating capacity?

I don't understand what problem this is trying to solve :?

Re: Commonwealth Games in Adelaide

This is not the infrastructure SA needs. We must to get our mining boom off the ground first, not to spend $1 Billion in sporting facilities. Our priority should be port upgrades, rail links, a power interconnector from Roxby to Queensland, schools, hospitals, regional development, weirs and lochs,...

[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

The last Port game was a bit of an extreme - it was possibly the worst weather we've had all year. I've stood on the Hill during plenty of cold, damp games where it's been full and the atmosphere's been great. Plus, most of the seating other than the very upper echelons of the stands were empty too ...

Re: Commonwealth Games in Adelaide

I really hope so. Regardless of the sometimes cited second-rate nature of the event compared to the Olympics it will be a great boost to the international reputation of Adelaide and should see a nice influx of visitors over the two week period it is running. Luckily we have a few hotels coming on li...

[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

I absolutely love the Oval. We have taken both interstate and overseas visitors to see either footy or cricket and they have all loved it – there was no mention of it looking unfinished, in fact the hill and scoreboard were praised. During the last Ashes series I was sat next to a group of fellas ov...

Thank heavens for that. I've been finding it really hard to get a burger around that part of town lately.

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

I don't see any reason why the Belair line can't continue in its current form using diesel-electric trains - I was under the impression that these would be required anyway due to the gradient and tunnels? There are still main lines in the UK which are served by diesel-electrics so it's not necessari...

Progressing through these has identified potential opportunities to further improve public transport services and connectivity for Port Adelaide and more broadly, the north western suburbs. And you can bet your bottom dollar that these 'improvements' will involve a shitty bus service. A shitty bus ...

Absolutely none I imagine. Just a convenient way of canning the project and forcing people on to road-based transport solutions.

Hopefully the Port developers will push back on this one...

And my main point is that we are similarly decades away from an extensive freeway network (other than the NS motorway) - not that I'm aware of any level of government proposing one be built, but the opinion of several posters on this thread is that further new large roads will be required after thi...
