Re: Superloop 500

No 500 in the city would be a huge loss. Doesn't really make sense to blame the pandemic when we are having football with 20,000 spectators going. Masks are supposed to protect you? Why can't the riggers putting up grand stands and marquees where masks? The street circuit event, either for the Supe...

Is it just me ?.......because every time I look at this new apartment building I think of the 1970's.....
In the long shots definitely. Looks modern up close though.

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

Can you just elaborate what you mean/understand how a road can make a profit? Do you mean a cost/benefit analysis? I am curious do you know how they value/ monetise the economic benefits? Yes a CBA, and no I have no idea. I have a few Civ Eng friends, and Adelaide being tiny, they've all had some k...

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

I was told this weekend that the Feds are refusing to commit major funding to the main stretch, even if the state Libs had a shovel ready plan for the infrastructure stimulus money on time, because there's no business case that can be written up which shows it will make a profit. No profit means zer...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

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. The brewery site is 100% beyond doubt...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Finally another one of those "simple and obvious ways to make public transport better in Adelaide" ideas has made it through to the top tiers of government. (The other and most obvious example of this is the Flinders train line, first proposed in 1969......reality in 2020) Let me take a guess how t...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The stations are bargain basement compared to Oaklands, and they continue to have at grade pedestrian crossings, nothing but the cheapest for anything that isn't about cars from the State Liberal Government as per usual

[U/C] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

If the South Australian government had allowed an AFL hub to be established in Adelaide (instead of letting the Qld government doing it) then the Grand Final would probably have come to Adelaide. The AFL did not want to establish a hub in Adelaide, they demanded open borders. Neither Adelaide nor P...

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

Doesn't make much sense that they'd introduce another noise wall design; R2P is only 1km and connects the Superway with the T2T. Since the Superway doesn't have noise walls, using the T2T design helps keep an element of flow. I agree with differentiating the larger sections but not for a short conn...

It's not meant to be exclusive for sports teams all the time, I mean they're already going to struggle massively to make a profit so why would they shoot themselves in the foot extra hard by turning away any paying customers, but I'd wager it will be when the Indian Cricket Team hits town whether th...

Re: 250 homes to be demolished for 650 new ones

So let's bulldoze 250 run down homes, that if renovated might actually have some character in favour of building 650 shit looking shoeboxes that in twenty years will look terrible. Great idea. These developments all depend on the quality of the landscaping and public shared treatments. If the housi...
