Re: 2018 South Australian State Election

Not long now. ABC News has produced a handy summary of SA state election promises (for 3 parties) to date. Costings are included, where given, but some are noticeably absent. The South Australian election is fast approaching and the Labor Party, Liberal Party and Nick Xenophon's SA Best have all bee...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

News this morning that the Turnbull government is going to buy out the NSW and Vic govts Snowy 2.0 shares for $6 billion. Huge boost to the infrastructure etc budgets of these two states but no mention yet of the possible total cost of this massive project. The deal means the Commonwealth will wholl...

Re: Fringe Festival

Any comments on the fringe events so far ? Looks like Gluttony is a lot bigger this year. I hope they're able to bring back the parade on the opening night again next year. The Fringe Festival is in full swing. Great vibe around the city! We have booked into seven shows across the city and suburbs,...

Re: News & Discussion: Transport Projects

Why can't the state Liberals also then talk to their Canberra mates about reinstating the money that was supposed to be allocated to the Gawler line electrification? Tragic that the Gawler line electrification has been left in limbo. Federal Liberals have dudded SA on infrastructure funding, especi...

Re: News & Discussion: Transport Projects

ABC News carried this item on the row over suitability and costings of the proposed Port Wakefield Road single lane overpass. Marshall - Mullighan spat. Port Wakefield overpass proposed by SA Liberals, but Labor slams costing. A road overpass would be built just north of Port Wakefield to improve sa...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

6000 is too small. 10000-12000, based on similar business model to Rod Laver Arena is sensible. The bulk of RLA's income is from concerts, not tennis. If we're seriously talking about using Memorial Drive for NBL it should be bigger than the current stadium which is usually at capacity. If you brin...

On the 13 Jan the TDU christens the new Motorsport Park with its first "event". It will be interesting to see the progress as we haven't seen photos/videos of the work for a while. Agree. Interesting concept and a chance to look at the venue (progress). Revolve24 Australia at The Bend Motorsport Pa...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Agree with others here. This 6k proposal is far too small. Great location, needs to be multi-purpose for concerts etc and include basketball. Bulldoze Next Gen. I hope the Tennis folk have a re-think, with a funding carrot, and see the opportunities with this site, so accessible to the city and publ...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Agree with your sentiments.
When this plan came out, my immediate thought was to change stops at the Railway Station tram stop, if needed. Minimal walking to change direction.
