[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

everything was drip fed to us. There is an up-side to being drip-fed. It should lower the risk by breaking the project up into more manageable sections. DPTI is getting experienced at executing billion dollar upgrades now, but imagine if the first substantial project (superway) was a $5 billion dol...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I think you've caught yourself up in semantics and entirely missed his point. Whatever corporate-speak euphemism or public sector bludger tropes you want to use, there are many real world examples of the downsides to public service of the process (as with East Coast rail). And my point - which is t...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

robably not, given they have basically been gagged from even commenting on it. Some PSAs (Passenger Service Assistants) found out about the privatisation through word of mouth - some even from passengers. The debate over privatisation of Adelaide's light and heavy rail will not so much be about the...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Etsa and SA water assets are still owned by the sa government and exclusive control of operation is leased out. Getting more specific, SA Water is a government owned corporation, with some independence from government but also a lot in common - for example, staff are given HR rankings - instead of ...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

That shows that quite a bit of effort went into planning the MATS plan - it was not just a "big hands, small map" thought bubble before an election. I wonder if anyone has done or is doing that level of planning for the North-South Motorway, GlobeLink hills bypass or links from the South Eastern Fr...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

It also leads to people purchasing and constructing on land, speculatively or otherwise- which should already be quarantined. One thing i've often wondered is whether the government has the power to retrospectively "quarantine" land in this way, without purchasing it or compensating the owners. Doe...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

A Qantas 747 (flight QFA1364) just flew past my work window on approach to Adelaide AP, (coming from Rockhampton Previous to that it flew an odd looking track from Sydney to Rockhampton this morning). Some kind of special charter flight? Not often you see a Qantas widebody gracing our skies these d...

Port Wakefield Overpass and Highway Duplication Project - Concept Animation July 2019 /x9qCI9qcYzk I think this has been well thought out.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Closer to the interchange, or aligned with Flinders Drive. Which is already within walking distance to the station, and the station footbridge will connect to the bus interchange via the access road and footpath between the Wilson Carpark and the Cancer Centre. For those that are accessibility-impa...
