It will certainly end up a b grade cafe area and the tower will probably never happen

The tower will definitely get built. It's a great piece of land for a commercial tower being gifted, and getting this plaza built is the price being paid.

So westbound will be dumped at a dead end on west terrace?
There's a bike crossing there that joins the bike path in the Western parkland and is already a popular route for cyclists. The other criticisms are definitely odd, but that part makes sense.

That looks very silly and I'm sure there will be lots of complaining voices.

Which means it's perfect. :D
Check the ABC Adelaide Facebook post re: this, they're going bananas.
If it's the same type of complaints the pigs got then it's a good sign!

Is there going to be anything in that tunnel?
Retail space.
That's optimistic for any business that sets up there considering on weekdays there probably won't be much foot traffic going that way.

Re: Tunnel under the airport ASAP!

I'm unsure how it follows from reduced aircraft numbers that the runways full length isn't required. Long runways are really only needed for long haul flights, but there are very few of those at the moment. I'm sure a commercial arrangement could be arranged with the airlines to keep those few serv...

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

With talk of a transit corridor mainly from the perspective of O Bahn use of Grenfell Street, does anyone know why the O Bahn has not been considered for electrification in its current form?

Re: Tunnel under the airport ASAP!

I've finally thought of a way we could take advantage of Covid: With very few aircraft using Adelaide Airport at the moment, and widebodies in particular likely to be seldom seen this year and next, there's far less need to keep the main runway open for its full length. Which means we have a rare o...

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

I think a problem with that median setup is that it leaves less space for footpaths and overtaking lanes for buses when the goal should be to make it a more pleasant environment for pedestrians and a faster corridor for public transport. The bus stop appears to be the concrete pad, and the through ...

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

The O-Bahn tunnel was quite cheap at $160 million. The thing is, there are no bus stops inside the tunnel. When you put bus stops in a tunnel, the cost shoots up because the tunnel will be wider where the stops are, plus you need ramps for the pedestrians. It's looking at the problem the wrong way....
