Re: I hope everyone is travelling well and getting through this.

Couple of days ago we didn't see this coming :o Think this is the right move, go hard now. So what's everyone planning to do for next 6 days or more? If people paid attention and read between the lines of what the premier was saying, they would have realized this was a strong possibility of happeni...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

The location I suggest is about 650m from ARS, if they build a second foot bridge. About 660 without a footbridge. How did you come to that distance just out of interest? I can't find a route from ARS under 830m, with a route involving a new footbridge being nearer 1km. I'm not trying to be pedanti...

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

Why would we want more buses on a motorway? There are trains down south which are much faster then a bus to get into the city. We want to get Adelaide moving not slow it down. Motor Ways are for cars, we don’t need more buses in Adelaide to clog up our road system. Our road system is already clogge...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

Not that I mentioned distances, but it's actually about 600m to the tram stop and nearly 900m to the train stop at Bowden and 1.3km to the North Adelaide station. None of that changes the mentioned fact that the stadium is out of the way of these tram and train stations. For Adelaide Oval they built...

[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...

Re: Tunnel under the airport ASAP!

In this hypothetical, why would you put it in the drain or remove the drain?

Surely it would be possible to re-concrete and reinforce that drain, and build on top of it, so that it's more like a stormwater sewer?

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

I was under the impression that the southern tunnel will finish just south of the tram line which means it will continue past cross road unless I interpreted it incorrectly. Wasn't aware of that. Where did you see/read this? https://indaily.com.au/news/2020/11/10/budget-2020-the-key-measures/#north...

I'm still trying to work out what the possibilities are going to be in regards to the new tunnel at cross road. a) will there be full entry/exit from the tunnel at cross road? if so will this mean the existing railway line remains at grade or will the railway line need to go above the surface roads...

Re: Tunnel under the airport ASAP!

If they buy up the properties along that stormwater drain, they could build a non-stop road. Bit of a funky interchange linking it to the NSM and JCD, run the road around the northern end of the airport and some on/off ramps at Sir Richard Williams ave..and you have your airport link.
