    From the Advertiser: OVERPASSES COULD SLASH $133m FROM ROAD COSTS By CAMERON ENGLAND and KARA PHILLIPS 05jun06 EXCLUSIVE BUILDING overpasses rather than tunnels on South Rd could shave $133 million off the bill on the blowout-plagued projects, the state's peak resources body said yesterday. The South Australian Chamber of Mines and Energy said engineers in its membership believed the State Government had chosen the most expensive solution to traffic congestion on the city's major...

    I guess the videos didn't hold my interest long enough for me to see that then. I very much doubt any of them have considered a usage that would be of real interest to most people. So you're not even bothering to watch/read the proposals, and then complaining that certain things haven't been considered? That takes the cake.

    The SA 2014 state election resulted in labor (who wrote the DAC rules years earlier) being voted back into power. I don't recall it being raised as a concern during the election campaign? Nor do i recall Liberals proposing to dismantle DAC powers as an election promise. The DAC exists so government can get on with delivering benefit to the majority, avoid pandering to the few. Are we suggesting democracy doesn't work? Should government really need to carry every individual along for the full...

    My 2 cents worth........ 1. I actually don't mind the design of that high rise in the render, it's neither totally boring or offensive. 2. This should not be the location for a new tallest tower for Adelaide. It would look ridiculous there, unless it was some awe inspiring piece that any city would die for. 3. 40,000sqm of office space probably represents well over a years worth of new office space demand........ way too much. 4. I love this city of course, but it annoys me that almost...

Vibrant Adelaide - Historic Changes to Adelaide CBD

100 Storeys

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
    Less duplication
    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.
