Re: U/C: Electrification & Upgrade of the Adelaide Rail Netw

The shuttle service currently ending at South Terrace could continue to Goodwood Station, ditto for any future Outer Harbour line, this would provide a lot of empty carriages waiting to be filled. Having passengers transfer at Goodwood would mean less transferring at North Terrace. A location that ...

Re: Off the plan purchase details ?

Having witnessed other people get into the OTP stuff and being an investor myself, all I'll recommend is stay away from off the plan apartments! The developers often have very fixed terms and clauses, and often selling at a premium price for being new. Starting to see this already in Melbourne and B...

Re: U/C: Electrification & Upgrade of the Adelaide Rail Netw

Why can't they just run the diesel trains back on the line until it's resolved? it's not like they they changed the track gauge, or did they? There were diesel trains running at reduced intervals this afternoon, but they were taken off Grange line services as a result of the shortage of available r...

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

The satellite photographs as at 9 Feb 2016 clearly shows a reinforced concrete "strip" being built between the northbound surface road and where the lowered roadway will eventually be constructed. A photograph in the latest Construction Newsletter has a photo showing this construction as "Top of th...

Nope, it was definitely three lanes each way prior to the new extensions being constructed.

[COM] Re: East Park, Kent Town | 36m | 11 Levels

Pretty sure its piling equipment. I think of the kind that completes the basement walls prior to excavation if that makes any sense. This is just from my observation. Not fact. This looks about right. So they excavate a trench to the required depth and fill the excavation with a bentonite slurry to...

Some creative project naming there... I am pretty sure there was another project called Park Central in Adelaide only a few years ago?

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

Might need to split the South Road service on ramp in two to avoid the merging issues apparent in the current concept, with the onramp crossing over the exit lane from the motorway to Ayliffes Road. I wish something similar had been done where the Gateway Motorway joins the Pacific Motorway merge he...

Those interchanges mean that Adelaide drivers will have to get used to merging and picking the correct lane or end up going down the wrong route - left lane to South Road, right lane to Ayliffes Road.

Re: News & Discussion: Trains

Halleluja! Let's hope that this is funded and that they finally fix the train line to nowhere! A passing loop at Clovelly Park should be enough to ensure a 15 minute headway, unless they plan to duplicate more of the track. The passing loop was included in one of the first Tonsley Line proposals th...

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

With all the scope changes to the project occurring now, Darlington upgrade isn't really an appropriate name given that almost the entire scope of works falls into Bedford Park. Great to see the increased scope of works coming through on the infrastructure projects - there must be contractors biddin...

My friends family owns the for work company for this building and he works on it daily. He was telling me that it should reach its full height by September 2016.

Alright...so from Torrens Road, travelling either East towards the City or West towards the beach, how do we get onto the motorway? There doesn't seem to be any access... If you are on Torrens Road heading east or west, you could use the surface South Road. It has 2 lanes heading north/south so you...
