Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

Above all the rail corridor should be preserved as a rail corridor, even if this proposal doesn’t get up, it may have another future use we are not aware of today. That aside, let private enterprise put forward their business proposal in this particular case and let market forces do the rest. One th...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

John Gerber, the owner of Chateau Tanunda is attempting, once again, to re-launch a plan to bring back the Wine Train to run from Gawler to Tanunda with the ultimate aim of ARS to Tanunda in the longer term. As most already know, Tanunda is now end of the line since the recent severing of it on the ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

This revised proposal is a joke. Why does everything to do with the Adelaide CBD come back to on-street car parking? Adelaide CBD has more car parking station spaces available than either Sydney CBD or Melbourne CBD, why do people still expect on-street parking immediately at the front of the CBD bu...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

I think you could argue the Entertainment Centre has as good or better public transport connections than Adelaide Oval -- it's physically closer to both the tramline and railway as well as key bus routes. I am not sure if your comment is sarcasm or if you are serious? If serious, what are you smoki...

Re: Events Post-Covid

The Fringe and Adelaide Festival are still happening at this stage. The Fringe has a variety of changes to comply with restrictions, and the venues will be laid out differently. The Feast Festival is currently happening in Adelaide, which was already a bit of a test of how events might happen in th...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

Fellas one important point about a soccer stadium. If we want a FIFA sanctioned stadium capable of attracting any World Cup matches (men or women) the stadium has to be 40,000 seat and covered. Anything less will always be a backyard stadium. Both Liberal and Labour need to acknowledge this. Please...

Re: Events Post-Covid

Due to the virus, Tennis Australia will move all tournaments to be played in Melbourne for this summer. Therefore Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart, Sydney, and Perth will not host their respective events this summer. Melbourne comes out as the big winner, who would have thought considering the m...

And the joke continues with these pie in the sky, unworkable concepts – and that is very reason there is no proper plan of action. There is no single focus and there are too many conflicting self-interest groups. The most practical solution still might be a properly rebuilt Memorial Drive for hardco...

Re: Superloop 500

This announcement is of no surprise to me.

See my comments on this topic back in February this year.

Its future has been under a cloud in the background, since the start of the year.

It was just a matter of what explanation would be provided to justify the axing.

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

When the NS MW is completed, freight on the Melbourne-Perth freight corridor via Adelaide, (regardless if that freight is stopping in Adelaide or passing through), will take the shortest/fastest/most economical route, and that will be the 6KM stretch of Cross Road joining the SE FW to the new NS MW....

Re: Adelaide Oval news and events

The India Test series has been locked in for this summer. The four Tests have been awarded to Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney & Brisbane – Perth misses out (good).

With this weeks announced pending closure (mid 2021) of West End Brewery at Thebarton surely this site would be a prime candidate as a replacement for Hindmarsh Stadium. The previously proposed railyards site could then be used for a smaller 15K multiuse arena. Surely the Crows jump all over the We...
