Re: SA Economy

New global study about the economic impact of robotics & automation identifies greatest risk for SA in Australia: 'Robots set to take 20m jobs globally by 2030, SA and Victoria will be hard hit, warns report' The relevant quote about SA: It suggests that in Australia, South Australia is most vulnera...

[PRO] Re: 54-58 Elizabeth Street | ~54m | 17 Levels |Student Accom

This site was technically meant to be stage 3, so it'll be interesting what happens with Stage 2 (given the resident's corporation rejected the initial proposal for the Balfours corner). I'm not fussed about it being student apartments so long as it's architecturally sound. The disappointing thing a...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

Adelaide has some great modernist (I guess this one is deco?) and brutalist buildings, which sadly are a bit unappreciated compared to the 19th century ones. Funny you should say so, as the ABC has just posted an article about that very fact. Good read: 'Adelaide's brutalist architecture celebrated...

I thought the current W&C hospital at North Adelaide was nominated as a potential site after they vacate.
That'd be a great site, but I'm not sure it'd meet the games schedule given the new W&C is unlikely to be complete before 2025. And hospital construction has a way of blowing out..

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

If the tram museum could be brought to the Port, and if the National Motor Museum opened a campus (or simply relocated from Birdwood) there, marketing the Museums in the Port as a transportation discovery destination would be a cinch. There'd be aviation, rail, motor and maritime all in the one pla...

Re: News & Developments: Bowden TOD

I was at Bowden the other weekend, and as I hadn't been there for quite a while, I was surprised how much vacant land is still yet to be redeveloped. As Bowden has been earmarked as the preferred potential site for the Athletes Village should Adelaide bid & win the CW games, maybe that will fill in...

Re: SA Economy

To spit ball: Education and research have multiplying employment and income effects if the government supports them. Where's the plan beyond SAHMRI 2 for BioMed City? In which fields of medical research could we double down and establish pre-eminence? If successful, can we attract Big Pharma? What m...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Yeah, that's what I'd expect - massive degradation over distance.

This is where the potential of hydrogen is so promising. In essence, we could bottle our ample wind and sun and ship it overseas.

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

As I posted the other month on the Trams forum on this site, I speculated a tram extension statement of some sort by the end of this year. Even against all the odds and all the anti-PT noise coming out pre & post budget from this Govt, I still expect something. Although the statement / announcement...

Yeah, let's be sensible throwing such accusations around, so that when real corruption comes up we know what the word means.

What we have here is classic partisan misdirection and misinformation. Anything but the straightup truth.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

To be fair, while street view reveals few regulatory significant trees, it's not clear to me why they'd need to clearfell the lot nor why landscape restoration isn't factored into DPTI's plans. The residents are within their rights to push for a more amenable outcome, although could perhaps lay off ...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

The Marshall government’s abandonment of Port Adelaide reaches new depths as they’ve now put the Port Dock spur line on ice, following their pulling of funding for the Failie and the ‘public interest” trashing of Heritage listing for Shed 26. I hadn't heard about the Failie being defunded. So the H...
