Re: #Official Mining Thread

just out of curiosity, why is the NT government involved in the 15000 page report. is it because BHP wants to use the SA-NT railway, eventhough they are using an SA port to ship the ore.

Re: Ian Smith: It's a shame Adelaide is crumbling.

They said yeah we know South Australia that's where they make the best wine in the world. I was in NZ a few years ago staying in a backpackers. I met a group...

Re: Ian Smith: It's a shame Adelaide is crumbling.

Although this article outlines some truths about SA, particularly buisness aspects, IMO there is one core issue about SA that fails to be emphasized. SA needs to concentrate on setting up graduate positions, particularly for university graduates. For example SA could become the research centre for g...

Re: #PRO: City Busway - O-Bahn to West Tce

According to some of the Paynem, Norwood and St Peters ppl in that article, putting 2 bus lanes down the middle of Hackney road will 'clog it up' .... ah yeah that makes sense :roll:
