Try 45km

There are a stack load of job opportunities in the northern suburbs, so not all potential residents will be enticed to work in town.

Or they can drive/cycle/walk to the train station and take the train. Costs $5.40 return.

They could do that. The Gawler Central station will need a pretty big overhaul. Buying out the couple of homes behind it and expanding the small carpark would be an idea too. Not sure too many people will be walking to Gawler Central from Gawler East though. A 3km or 4km steep uphill walk doesn't sound too enticing at the end of the day. If they extend the train line it'd make sense or at least provide some buses. I remember Gawler when it only had a bus to Elizabeth and the city leave each day at 10am from the BP servo in Murray St. Private bus service too, not STA. :roll:

Of the four Gawler people I know, two work at Elizabeth (Holden), one works in the city and one at Nurioopta. There's no big local employer apart from retail that I can think of. I don't have any problem with the town itself, it's an OK place but having a reason to move up to Gawler like a major employer would make more sense than to just plonk another 10000 people there because it's cheap land.

As I said there are plenty of job opportunities (from admin to working in a factory) in the northern suburbs, places such as Edinburgh Industrial Park - largest in SA.

Which is not far from Gawler

I was about to say the same... but seem to remember saying the same already in a similar discussion about down South.

Live near where you work (if you can).
Exit on the right in the direction of travel.

That's the point. Work where you live or as close as possible, especially with fuel going up and PT in Gawler a joke. I'd bet at least 50% of Gawler's residents don't work in Gawler and 75% of those head south at least as far as Elizabeth. Of course there's work in the 'northern suburbs' but work out where and then build the houses within 10km of them instead of 25km (Gawler - Ed/Park for example, same distance as Reynella - Victoria Square). The wastelands and uncropped paddocks behind Elizabeth are massive.

Some people would prefer to live in Gawler, instead of the Elizabeth area

Anyway there are already plans to build thousands of new homes in the Elizabeth area such as 'Playford Alive', Delfin project at Blakeview, housing estates at Craigmore, Andrews Farm etc..

Just build it,
I am in favour of your idea of extending the Rail service.
An Interchange area could be built at the end of carlton road close to kalbeeba road.
This would give opportunity for the new residents to catch the train via a feeder bus from their new homes.
There could also be an opportunity for a Park and rinde facility for any passengers further east of Gawler east.
The opportunity to put Gawler east on the map is there for the asking.
Perhaps a set of Traffic lights could be installed at the Lyndoch Road/Barossa Way/Kalbeeba road intersection as this would give the opportunity for easy access to the interchange for new Resients when land becomes available for housing in Concordia.

More land sought for new development

Posted Fri Jul 18, 2008 6:40pm AEST

he developers of a proposed new town on Adelaide's northern outskirts want to increase its size to 1,300 hectares.

The Walker Corporation has applied to expand the Buckland Park development by 300 hectares to allow better water management.

It wants to turn the site between Virginia and Port Gawler into a new township with amenities and housing for 15,000 people.

An environmental impact statement on the development is yet to be completed.

With petrol prices the way they are, who will want to live out in the middle of nowhere like that?

Its a self contained township, not everyone commutes to the cbd everyday, Unlike what many wannabe transport planners say.

Self contained township? Buckland Park is a blatant attempt by the state government to create urban sprawl outside our urban boundaries. The majority of people living in Buckland Park will commute to the CBD.
