475RepliesPretty sure I specifically said his sources remain unknown, therefore his stories can not be verified by anyone. If he is able to bash people so openly and freely, then he shouldn't have a problem naming who his sources are. Unless he has something to hide. He rambles on about "faceless men"....yet he him self remains faceless, and he purposely keeps his sources as faceless men to the rest of us. Therefore he is no better then those he attacks in...Last reply by Waewick in The Pub 5 hours ago
1133RepliesWell you'll always hear the guys over at railpage complaining about how Adelaide Station has been ruined. For the most part I agree, but in a way the old station did need a interior redesign. Even now it still does, the capacity of the station during peak hour is pathetic. Balconies on the building would make it even worse. At least the exterior of the building has remained largely untouched after the redevelopment of the area in the late 1980s. It isn't often in Adelaide that there are old...Last reply by Waewick in CBD Development 5 hours ago

1611RepliesThese pics were from an earlier post I made on SSC. I heard there's a rumour that there's going to be another underpass to be announced soon and it's not the Gepps cross one (although that may still happen). Apparently it's also going to be along South Road. If this goes ahead it should make South Road a lot more traffic friendly in the long term but hell in the short term.

Vibrant Adelaide - Historic Changes to Adelaide CBD
Last Updated on Tuesday, 27 March 2012 14:27 Written by Howie Tuesday, 27 March 2012 10:22
At 1pm today Minister John Rau announced significant reforms to the Adelaide City development plan.
The key reforms are :
Unlimited Height for parts of the CBD (CASA Aviation Limits Permitting)
Significant Height Increases throughout the rest of the CBD
*Much* Faster approval times
Recognise signficances of streetscape
For full list see the release below.. or join the discussion on the forum.
Here is the topology of the proposed changes.
This is also a workflow diagram for the new DA approval process (this process could take 180 days under the current system).
This comes shortly after the announcement of a new City Design Review Panel to assess all development applications before the DAC.
We anticipate there will be more announcements in the days to come. This is truly an exciting time to be in South Australia.
We'll continue to bring you the latest on this developing story as details come to light.
