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

It shows major construction work on the proposed tunnel, which would form Stage 1 of the project, might not start until 2024 and may not be completed until mid-2028. The papers also reveals work on Stages 2a and 2b, between Anzac Highway and the River Torrens, would not begin until Stage 1 was fini...

le'Cornu's actually ceased trading in 1985 then then site was empty until 1990 when it got demolished so we have been waiting 35 years for something to happen. Wake me up we there is a tower crane on site!

[APP] Re: Former LeCornu Redevelopment | Mixed Use

Despite being promised for release nearly a year ago, and despite council purchasing the site 3 years ago to 'end the delays', plans will now not be shown to the public until next year. Article at InDaily : 'After 30 years, a longer wait to see plans for vacant Le Cornu site' Jeez we should just gi...

Some of the light poles along North Terrace will be replaced over the coming few weeks. Are there any that are still crooked film the original extension works?
A 2-year old project and the street lights are already crooked? What happened??

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

Is there any need for Seaford to stop at Showgrounds, even at showtime? It's not much of a walk to the south entry from Goodwood. That was the whole point of building the Showground station. :wallbash: Nobody will want to walk 5-10 minutes from Goodwood when there’s a perfectly good station that wa...

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

Do agree that a seaford express should always stop at one of the Belair stations (Goodwood, Showgrounds) to make it easier to transfer to the Belair line too. Probably Goodwood if longer term they upgrade it and make it easier to transfer to a tram as well. I'd say both. Showground year-round for a...

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

Saw the bridge sections for myself while driving past. Is it just me or is the green that they've chosen hideous? I'm surprised they didn't just go with the same dark grey as the Darlington road bridges and actually chose to use colour. Colour is not a bad thing, burnt orange on the Flinders Link lo...

Re: [CAN] 10 Anzac Highway | Kaufland Supermarket

Sorry but more public housing is wrong. There isn't enough employment, so why should such an even bigger burden be put on those who do have jobs? Provide employment, fix the damn economy and there wont be such an increased need for the government to provide housing. These two sites should be sold o...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

It looks like the vandals used bleach or some kind of cleaner which removed the tarnishing/weathering. Not sure what can be done other than completely removing the weathering on the rest of the pig and bringing it back to “fresh” metal. Very petty attack on a completely uncontroversial Adelaide icon.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Well, well overdue. The interchange should be moved to the new Flinders Station anyway. By the looks of the animation there will be a bus stop under the viaduct on Main South Road If you drive through Darlington you can see the northbound and southbound Stop 27 Main South Road being finished off.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The 4000-class trains were manufactured by Bombardier. Perhaps Labor should also explain why it thought a foreign company was a better supplier than an Australian one for those. Manufactured in Australia at Bombardier’s Dandenong plant (originally owned by Comeng), with a shell based on the locally...

In addition to the new digital bus stop screen which was installed a while ago, the wind screens at FMC bus interchange have now been refurbished.

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

If anything, the SA government should be making sure that exporting from SA is the cheapest option. A viable export port somewhere southeast of the Murray Mouth and/or a gentler railway corridor over the Mount Lofty Ranges would make it much easier to keep freight from the Southeast and Riverland o...
