Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

I think it's more distressing that people actually still lap this populist policy crap up. Labor SA are a privatisation machine, this faux concern is completely transparent and it is utterly bizzare that anyone who can click their own fingers is actually falling for it. They won't cancel any contrac...

[APP] Re: [APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

I don't see the complaint about food and drink prices. It's no different to pricing at any other captive venue or event, and it should just be assumed there's some kind of premium on them. Comparisons between other stadiums on who is 10 or 20c cheaper/dearer for a pint and some hot chips is dumb, a...

They need to buy another chemist for the license.

Are we aware of any pharmacies closing down in the mall?

I would be curious to see the hotels financial modelling and what their profit forecasts are based upon? Quick scenario to consider: 39 event days at Oval per annum ( 22 AFL, 1 SANFL, 15 Cricket, 1 concert) On event days they would be getting a room rate of $300 per room. $300 x 138 rooms = $41,400...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

A 26 tonne load limit to be imposed on the King William Rd bridge, with significant repairs needed within the next decade. I guess this makes a tramline into North Adelaide contingent on the bridge being repaired first. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-09-04/king-william-road-adelaide-bridge-might-...

Does anyone know how the heritage building is looking? I hope its still in ok condition and hasn't been trashed inside I read somewhere that the restoration will be made difficult because of poor workmanship of the developers. This includes the underground carpark being higher than approved. Its a ...

They would want to be very very careful with what they do.

The central market charm might be lost for good if they try and make it what it isn't.

Adelaides most densely populated council, Holdfast Bay is served by train and tram lines. A lot more can be done to increase density a long the Seaford line, Oaklands has so much potential, so much low density housing that could be turned into 4 to 6 story apartment blocks, Brighton you can do the ...

Unless we get China money there will never be a decent train system in Adelaide. Its too easy to kill on economics. Like the tram system, the train system doesn't service the densely populated parts of Adelaide so it'll never get the patronage. That's a relatively easy fix. If it's too expensive to...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

'A new bus services contract' [emoji38] $1billion is surprisingly cheap to upgrade the freight alignment to 160km/h. Half from the Feds and half from the state means the state only needs to find $50 mil a year to get it completed in a decade. This could be partially funded by a levy on developers o...

Idiots.
Hopefully they do stop it.

That would be a great outcome.
