Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Investing into Virgin Australia could turn out great. But it could also turn out to be worse than the State Bank disaster.

Let businesses and shareholders take risks. The state should focus on essential government services.

Re: YouTube tags not working

I believe the YouTube tags that embed the video use a very old system that YouTube must have retired in recent months. You're better off just pasting the link, it embeds in Tapatalk with just the link on its own.

Re: Extending the Riverbank and moving railtracks underground

Hey there, and welcome! There is far too much undeveloped land in the existing square of Adelaide that we can already build on, rather than giving out leases on public land. Business and investment is built on profit and returns on investment, and the profit margins here would be much smaller than b...

The LED strip looks to have been fixed, it is now fully in sync. It also looks better when the floors below have some lights turned on. Do you know what’s funny, since Friday the realm one has been broken and is now two colors. This is why I hate these tacky light features. They’re always poorly ma...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

All of the Lane Management Signs and Variable Message Signs on the southern portion of the Superway (where all roads are at gradient) have been removed for the R2P project. The stobie poles for the high voltage lines have also been moved further west to accommodate the widened road.

[COM] Re: M2 Northern Connector | 15.5km | $867m

The southern interchange now has a 90km/h speed limit. There are still works happening along the Salisbury Highway to Superway ramp to reduce it from 2 lanes to 1 lane.

Re: News & Developments: Bowden TOD

Anyone know what the ground level buildings will be? They look like commercial developments. There are 4 retail spaces in this development, 2 facing Gibson Street and 2 facing the laneway. EBG's photo shows the corner retail space along Gibson and Fourth Street I believe. There will be an additiona...

Wait hang on. In the top picture it looks like the western side is totally glazed but in the second picture it’s not? It looks so much better. But I’m confused.

The first pictures was photoshopped to get a gauge of height is that correct?
Yes, the tower at full height is a photoshopped image.

Time frame for it?
The technical investigation works? 12 months according to the article.
The State Government is now seeking to engage an expert company to undertake the $3 million investigation works over the next 12 months.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

I wonder if this relates back to the engine fire that happened a few months ago. Hopefully it's not too serious as all engines were replaced just a year or so ago.

Re: Adelaide Oval news and events

The surface of Perth Stadium (as well as Adelaide Oval as far as I know) is too hard for regular EPL games, many of the the players will suffer injuries after 3 or 4 rounds. They would be better off playing at Perth Oval.

Not that it's going to happen though.

Re: News & Developments: Prospect

Looks like a decent building with good finishes. More of this please!

It will definitely have more street activation than the current tenant, Blackwell Funerals.
