Re: Main South Road & Victor Harbor Road Upgrade

Any direct link between the Southern Expressway and Victor Harbor Road will require bridges over the Onkaparinga River and also significant cuttings into the hilly landscape around it. You would also be going through the Onkaparinga River National Park, which could be problematic. There are a lot o...

[APP] Re: 75-79 King William Street | 124m | 36 Levels | Hotel

Agree with the pedestrian weatherproofing idea however, is this the lady that is responsible for letting the way mouth cheese and shitty student accommodation on North Terrace get the green light? If so, she should have no say in what is tasteful. I bet her home has plaid drapes with brown carpet. ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Hi All, In light of the issues with commute times to Mount Barker via the freeway and the extension discussions on this thread concerning the resurrection of the train to Stirling and Mount Barker.

Re: News & Discussion: Cycling

DIT have notified residents around Goodwood Station that there will be "Geotechnical investigations" over the next few days. Could this be a revival of the bike path over the Seaford and Belair lines?

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Here's the latest from the Riverbank to Market Link SA Health instructed the City of Adelaide to defer the construction of Bentham Street due to the utilisation of the Peppers Hotel as a medi-hotel. We are awaiting further instruction from SA Health. The design of Pitt Street is progressing. Thanks,...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

I would rather question why The Advertiser is happy to commit journalists to this trash and not to more newsworthy stories. Probably a newsdrop... or maybe trash stories about the City Council get lots of clicks? How about reporting what's happening with the Riverbank to Market Link? Or the North Te...

Re: Geelong Victoria Developments

As shown in the image is the 5 stages of the CBD West residential developments. Two of the high-rises seen here have been built. The tallest of the development is 30 storeys and approximately 140m in height, which I'm assuming will give Geelong the tallest skyline outside of the major cities. I thi...

Re: Main South Road & Victor Harbor Road Upgrade

I think option A seems like the best way to go for the moment. Surprised at the price tag though... its literally bitumen kerbing , manual labour and some street lights. Am I missing something here? They are building a new bridge over Pedler Creek and demolishing the existing one. Maybe also some l...

Re: Main South Road & Victor Harbor Road Upgrade

I thought The the Victor Harbor Road Duplication and the Main South Road Duplication were separate Projects, now suddenly they've been merged into the same budget? They probably did it to have the same contractors work on both projects at the same time, which could save costs in administration and ...
