Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

If it does happen, it won't take long to realise that there is zero viability in charging people $30 return for a bus to and fro the city when for a little bit extra you can catch an Uber or taxi to the front door of your hotel or house. Even if J!X services are not part of the new Network, there i...

[APP] Re: Peregrine HQ | 38m | 8 levels | Kensington

The scale is not out of place nowadays, but the helipad certainly is. I am not as upset by the helipad as it appears that some people are, but I don't think it's necessary either. It sounds more like a vanity project than anything practical. Correct, it's just a certain owner/director of Peregrine ...

Re: Beer Garden

Bold prediction: in three weeks' time, SA will begin to see the end of the virus. How are you defining that? New cases will be in single digits at most. I just feel that we've got it not so bad here in SA. As long as we keep borders closed, keep recovery internalised and everyone does the right thi...

Just so we can get back to regular discussion, the article I posted on the previous page mentions the 138m height and is a reliable source (being syndicated from a Murdoch mag): https://invest.cityofadelaide.com.au/blog/koomo-restaurant-will-be-adelaides-highest-cbd-diner-when-it-opens-in-crowne-pl...

Re: [VIS] New Concert Hall

88 O'Connell in North Adelaide (former Le Cornu site) would be a good option and can bring some much needed vitality to the area. In addition, it would build a case for a northward tram extension.

I can't find anything on the height either - not a source that states 138m anyway. There have been a few variations to the Development Application over time, but I looked through the most recent with no luck.

There were some excavators on site today, so I would say yes. Pretty sure slab was being ripped up.

I would hope that the Saturday night Nxxx buses aren't cut. They're extremely useful.

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Contracts, Service & Policy

Its time for cash tickets to be withdrawn......permanently. Yes, let's do it now during the coronavirus epidemic. Perfect opportunity to go "cashless" public transport. Today's change is permanent. If that is the case then it is time to really ramp up the marketing of the MetroCard. Cash this year....

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

As I posted in a different thread, Adelaide Metro will no longer sell tickets on buses. Other announcements within.

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Contracts, Service & Policy

Adelaide Metro going cashless from today. Bus drivers will no longer sell paper tickets, which will undoubtedly speed up service times. MetroCARD balance will now be updated within the hour, rather than the current 24-hour period. More info soon. Paper tickets being slowly phased out, with a reducti...

The SCG is rubbish. This list loses all credibility with that inclusion.
