Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

I thought the train drivers had a clause in their employment contract with the Government that they cannot be made redundant. Pretty sure I heard there is 100 train drivers that are still employed by the Government sitting in a waiting lounge for their next train driver job. While the private employ...

[U/C] Re: Westfield Tea Tree Plaza (Extension)

Plus was built as a competitor to the Plaza. It sold to the Plaza and the original owners probably made money on the way to its death. Yes the Plus has no clear purpose to exist now, its purpose has come and gone. New money goes to things like this: https://www.news.com.au/national/south-australia/w...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

Not with more modern cul-de-sacs it doesn't. Historically there were more alleyways that allowed cutting through, but due to security concerns many have closed over years and new developments rarely include them, meaning the walking routes are basically the same as driving routes. If we pick on the...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

The O-Bahn is the most heavily patronised public transport service in Adelaide, yes. As it stands it appears the north east actually has the lowest car dependency, most there use public transport or bikeways. With more parks, schools, malls and supermarkets than other areas NE residents are likely ...

Re: News & Developments: Other Suburban Retail

Competition on North East Road is amazing. The area is one of the most consistent low price fuel areas.
10-40c lower than the general fuel price everywhere else everyday.

Re: Why all the netball courts?

For water tanks you may be thinking of this old tank (heritage listed?): https://maps.app.goo.gl/cqfgHpmbzwvNo95H8 Netball clearly moved from the west to the east side of Anzac Hwy with new courts. The old courts I have seen used for storage or training by various organisations such as ambulances et...

Re: Pole Replacement North Terrace

I thought the poles were bent during installation of the overhead cables, not years later.
Possible during install single poles were holding extra load temporarily until cables were affixed to more poles.

Re: Tunnel under the airport ASAP!

Aidan is surely right, the creek space is tiny and not suitable. You build on Sir Donald Bradman or Richmond Roads.

While we talk about airport access can I ask how and why did Airport Road between Sir Donald Bradman and Henley Beach roads come to exist?
A big wide road to basically nowhere.

Melbourne also has an extensive tram network which runs mostly on the roads. Are they clogging up the roads but generating much of the PT usage?

Re: Petrol Station Owners

6 pump locations in a fairly large facility. Petrol prices listed at the bottom of the sign. Petrol is part of their offer, it is not their only offer. These are not petrol stations with a pie warmer. They are convenience stores with petrol. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201115/b1a1ec2741a91761...
