[PRO] Re: Brighton Road Grade Separation

Can someone in the know please tell me the point of this grade separation, when there are further bottlenecks at Tapleys/Anzac - in my view traffic merely gets to the bottlenecks quicker

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

I use the Belair Line regularly and from what I can tell, the service is very well patronised (especially during peak hour). Someone mentioned closing stations, I don't think that is required, Lynton is actually a very busy stop. Even in its current form (without much improvement), the service is st...

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

Yep, agreed with all said - this STINKS.

So the Libs claim grade separation is investment in P.T - umm, strictly not true , it's to ease congestion for motorists predominately.

Wonder what the costing for a new stadium would be, something like the one in Brisbane?

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Looking at that video , the upgrade looks pretty bleak to me, more trees and plantings are required.

The previous station was not even old and with some foresight, I agree with previous poster, they at least could reuse some materials for other station upgrades, but then that doesn't help our poor mo...

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

I know its bad, and yes i'm probably an asshole - but i'd prefer a Contemporary Art Gallery to be honest. We had some fantastic designs from the competition - all for nought it appears.

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

They just don't get it do they?

In a country like Japan, with a very successful public transport system, at almost every major station, there is a sizable shopping precinct, makes sense you see?

Off topic, but when considering the recent station upgrade at Marion - missed opportunity there too!

I'd say if this mad march loop demonstrates strong patronage - it would be a good test case for an extended city loop perhaps.

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

I think the update is realistic at this point, given the timeframes for the ATP event next year. $10 million well spent, the courts etc have already been upgraded. Perhaps future upgrades would make this court a secondary arena with a larger court elsewhere if there is room?

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

What's the cost benefit analysis of spending $$$ on a facility that is only really used once per year. Surely it doesn't really stack up. Unless of course its a multi purpose arena.
