[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I use Regency Road and the T2T all the time to get to the airport, the beach, etc. - but traffic is becoming pretty bad at the Main North Road intersection. Muller Road/North East Road is also a shocking intersection if you're not simply going up or down North East Road. The green right-turn light f...

[COM] Re: Westfield Marion (Extension)

A shopping centre like Chadstone draws people from all over Melbourne (and interstate) so there’s no reason Marion’s visitors would be limited to the local area.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

There’s a big new structure being built in the Airport Business Park close to Tapleys Hill Rd and Burbridge Rd. Anyone know who the planned business/tenant is? New Mitsubishi headquarters perhaps?? Mitsubishi's going in the corner of the main entrance - Sir Donald Bradman Drive and Sir Richard Will...

[PRO] Re: 29 Twin Street | ~130m | 38lvls | Student accom

I'm not a fan. Seems like there's barely any glass and windows - looks like a giant box with a few airholes randomly poked in.

Hopefully it's better in real life if it goes ahead.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Singapore Airlines is planning a “major announcement” at Adelaide Airport tomorrow. Any guesses?

[PRO] Re: Kangaroo Island Bridge - $5b

Dukes Highway (including the Swanport Bridge which is actually Princes Highway), and the rest of the Sturt Highway with a Truro bypass and probably on a changed alignment through the Riverland. And speaking of Kangaroo Island... Main South Road between Myponga and Cape Jervis isn't much fun. I'm gu...

[PRO] Re: Kangaroo Island Bridge - $5b

We'd be better off duplicating the Victor Harbor Road and the Dukes Highway... and reducing the costs of the ferry.

It was also mentioned in the paper a bridge might threaten the island's biodiversity.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

QantasLink were tossing up between Whyalla and Mount Gambier before they eventually went with the former. It must have been sketchy for a while but I wonder if demand is picking up now that the steelworks have been saved. We can only hope they'll take another look at the Mount - a relatively large, ...

In this development, would that be the same? Could we see taller proposals in this area because of this development paving a way?
From my understanding there's no prescribed height limit on the development site, but there is along Rundle Street? I could be wrong...

That should be something any purchaser of CBD apartments takes into consideration and if they don't they are foolish. Once a contract is signed there are very few things to enable you to get out of it. A building going up next door blocking your view is not one of them. The only way it potentially ...

Re: 2018 South Australian State Election

The Labor Government has done a lot to make Adelaide more dynamic and exciting - but the Oakden scandal is a complete loss of moral authority.

Of course, who knows which party SA Best and the independents will back to form government...

It will eventually be dwarfed by Realm Adelaide, so I'm not overly disappointed.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

As a new domestic airline into Adelaide, it will be tough to succeed. I hope they have a big marketing budget. Your average traveller will still type Newcastle into the Qantas, Virgin or Jetstar websites.

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

Wouldn’t it just be the the properties on the western side that would be affected? Surely the motorway has to go under Regency Road like the rest of the project.
