[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Interesting article from the ABC about some internal emails from the company that clad the new Adelaide Convention Centre. Especially this part: The employee also said that the Adelaide Venue Management Authority were a "key client". " We're working with them on the business case for the new multip...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

More to do with how the concrete is used. The Obahn relies on precision alignment of the track vertical and horizontal so as not to throw the vehicles around too much. Buses are as ridged as railcars, they bounce around. There is also significant force on the curves which does not exist on a normal...

[U/C] Re: [U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

I would much rather this, than Federation Square in Melbourne, (which is more like what a design comp would come up with), which everyone seems to rave about, but in reality is a rather hot desolate public space that looks more like the outback, than southern Victoria.
