There is a lift for access.
Check the map.

The board inside Adelaide Railway Station has been updated with the latest renders, some of which show more detail that we haven't yet seen.

I am all for this development but that office tower in this location is an absolute disgrace. They should call it the 30 pieces of silver tower. The govt should have had more backbone and refused Walkers money if this was the trade-off & eye-sore legacy for generations to come.

Spotted workmen around the northern perimeter of the Festival Centre this morning. Looks like work is about to get underway on the new promenade.

Are you sure they weren't there to start setting up for the tour down under?

No, it looks like it's for the Festival Centre upgrade.

There was quite a bit of activity this morning with parts of the building now barricaded off.

Bit disappointed about having to walk around to KWS to get to Adelaide Oval on Monday night, but at least something's going on here.

Was that the cricket with the Strikers? What a huge noise level was going on. I have been watching attendances to the big bash games in all states - there were 43000 at that one, 30000 at the one before in Melbourne. It seems attendances in Adelaide are almost always disproportionately higher given our population in comparison to other cities.

To me it says the planners have a winner here given the bridge, the casino, the railway and tram access, the riverbank development and proximity to the city. Others are watching this very closely.

i'm a lover of cricket in general, and go to T20 games whenever i can. Must say though i'm sooo bored wih the same background 'entertainment' year after year. I believe it's identical country-wide (munsters theme, clapping hands, 'coooeee' call, etc). For god's sake some variety please...
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

They've all been done to death and are now cringeworthy.

Anyway - how is this one getting on?

Have they knocked the front out of the Festival Centre yet?
