If Dwell and the Swiss cheese building on Waymouth are the standard, then we're stuffed.

Cheese grater is the SAHMRI building I think.

I really hope I'm not one who is considered to jump in just to post negativity and criticism, but I have to make an exception in this case to say that looks horrible, just totally irredeemably horrible.

[PRO] Re: Goodwood/Springbank/Daws Road Intersection

Glad they went with this in the end. Would seem to be a future-proof solution for Springbank Road with the single lane dividing into two through lanes and two turning lanes. Not that I have any understanding of the feasibility of upgrades to that road, just that it has always been quite an annoying ...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Interesting points SBD - I imagine speed limits will still be varied for different types of road conditions based on those likelihoods but there are still a lot of efficiencies that intelligent traffic could make. So even though we won't have 100km/h traffic on every suburban street, we might have a...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Certainly no expert on this but if all vehicles are eventually driverless, won't they be far more efficient in the way that they move on the roads? Cars will be able to travel in automated convoys, merge seamlessly at high speeds etc. All cars might be akin to taxis and summoned as required, rather ...

Possibly, although the rail service might be sought after by the McLaren Vale community and businesses to the extent that they are willing to support its conversion back to rail?

I might have to go for a walk by this way before casting judgement I think. The photo on the previous page looked like a translucent gold, the one just posted above looks like the faded yellow :) I believe that the actual effect of gold colour cannot be represented in the RGB colour space of comput...
