Without knocking down the Entertainment Centre, where is there room for a tram depot at Hindmarsh?
Presumably there are multiple options along Port Road - the old Coca Cola factory, the ES Wigg site, the brewery...

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

I think most people, visitors especially, won't head in a particular compass direction when leaving the airport - they'll just follow the signage. Even for locals it'll only take one trip to the airport with the new road configuration before they'd learn and memorise the best route home.

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

Cut and cover would need less demolition than a trench as the "surface road" could be stacked on top instead of being next to the motorway so the total width of the finished project would be less. I didn't mind that part of the finished project, but assume it kept getting kicked down the ...

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

But only localised around the main intersections as far as I remember - the remaining trench would have still resulted in the demolition of lots of heritage buildings with a resulting loss of character to the suburbs in general. It can be argued that the buildings themselves are relatively plentiful...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

I drove down that street every day to get to my carpark when I worked in the city. Its wasn't an unimportant road for me and many others. Because of the Light square, access to Waymouth street is difficult from any other route when coming from the south side. Smells a bit of entitlement to me. If y...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Australia isn't Europe. Its not inherently different about Adelaide, its the entire country. Its also a similar culture to the USA in this regard. If Europe is so good then why are you here? Is this what you want? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/15-minute_city I didn't mention anything about Europe b...

Re: News & Developments: Bowden TOD

Cheers for posting this - was an interesting read. Interesting about the old pugholes, I didn't know there were any on the site. They might host some interesting materials as typically they will have just been infilled with various nasties, especially being bang-smack in the middle of an industrial ...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

A few from this morning. Not much update on the site since my last post, other than the last remnants of the old structures at the northern end of the site have now been removed and the site has been levelled. Not sure what the stockpile is for - disposal or remediation maybe? https://i.imgur.com/6d...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

topic is Bentham Street not sure why anyone would want to meander down the middle of that I don't think it makes any difference - the topic is shared spaces in general. The more the merrier I say. Hailing from Europe originally I've seen many a crappy street be transformed into a vibrant and pleasa...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

how you got to removing the kerb from a street makes a city pedestrian friendly is a mystery to me The purpose of a shared space is to open the entire area up to pedestrians - rather than confining them to just the small footpaths at the edges. Priority of users of the space is as follows: 1) Pedes...

Re: MATS Plan - Available Now

Thanks very much for sharing this and for the time taken to get it scanned. Whilst there are sensible elements, mostly around public transport, much of it feels like overkill, even with modern traffic volumes. For example I can't see the need will ever exist for a combined eight lanes of freeway and...
