Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Great find! I do believe the area around Parkmore Ave was intended as the northern end of the Noarlunga Freeway as per the MATS Plan. It would then follow this reservation and use the Tonsley line. https://i.imgur.com/48RlrtH.png http://www.ozroads.com.au/SA/freeways.htm says North-South Freeway: <...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

Looking forward to the state government paying the same amount of money to them to only do maintenance on the roads the transport industry double dip pays for, and nowhere else The state government only pays for the main roads now, so I doubt that would change. The local roads that clog up with sch...

Project is meant to be done later in 2021. Three lanes just for a service road is unnecessary.

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

For years water has been pooling under many pavers, resulting in pedestrians getting soaked each time they step on loose stones.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Hampstead Road is a major freight route - I'm sure Botany Road is not. However, there are many roads in Adelaide that could benefit from this treatment.

Just saw on the news that Emirates has pulled out of Adelaide :o

Hopefully it's just during the pandemic.

Did a Google search re: southern O-Bahn, and came back to Sensational Adelaide via an old post by Rhino: Regarding a southern O'Bahn - this was looked into in the 1990s and the only viable route utilised the old Glenelg train corridor and then the Sturt Linear Reserve. It required 22 bridges to be b...

Re: News & Developments: Mawson Lakes

Interesting to see Renewal SA are selling the land at Mawson Lakes that includes most of the bus interchange and all the car parking. I gather various easements and Land Management Agreements will be in place to ensure ongoing public access. I presume a developer will do some form of commercial and...

I'm also thinking the remaining part of the corridor will be upgraded as one big project, but will be delivered in successive stages.

[ONH] Re: News & Developments: Parafield Airport Retail

Does anyone seriously think The District will actually start development. Apparently they were struggling to attract retailers even before COVID hit. As someone who lives in Salisbury, I can't see it happening. They would be better off linking it to Mawson Lakes in some form. There's already a half...

Well the transparent Tiser and government Are clearly at work to stop this project. Today it’s another negative article. People around Australia, wonder why nothing happens in SA; this is why!
