Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

Yes, it's utterly baffling that we have a mentality that people should get off the train/bus/tram, hop in their car, drive somewhere else and park, shop/errands, and then drive home. It forces even those within walking distance from a station/interchange to have to use a car. They don't even have to...

I would rather see the $200m go towards much needed level crossing removals. The two intersections earmarked for upgrades are nowhere near as high priority as removing either the Park Terrace, Salisbury or Cross/Marion Roads tram crossing.
Torrens Rd level crossing too.

(On that note, recent footpath upgrades on Hindley Street, North Tce and in the Mall have been absolutely butchered by various service works (NBN, gas lines) with no sign of forthcoming restoration...)
Rundle St's is atrocious. They haven't matched either the colour or the texture properly.

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

It would make more sense to me to make the Grange line all stops to ASR, and the outer harbour/port dock line limited stops up to Woodville (ie. only the higher patronised/catchment stations).

[APP] Re: 269 North Terrace | 118m | 36 Levels | Student accommodation

The Oaks Embassy, Horizon, EDS (or whatever it's called these days) stretch opposite the Convention Centre is pretty awful, and Urbanest on Bank St is a terrible recent addition. To the east, the John Martins carpark sucks a lot of energy out (particularly due to it's woeful ground level), and the P...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

:wallbash: ? What's wrong with this idea? Sure, it might bring more cars into the city, but until private vehicles are matched with adequate/reliable public transport, I don't think we can expect people to go without. And this is coming from someone who rides a bike, rides on PT and wants to see an...

Not sure why you would use a coating like that when you can tint concrete while making it.

The Frome St awnings aren't a good addition, although it looks like that's a requirement they've been battling with (Government architect wants pedestrian cover, but also wants it to fit with the vertical composition of the building).

Genuine question.

But how is 20mins regular?

Doesn't that just make people want to drive?
Agreed. 20mins peak and 30mins off peak isn't good enough. Need double those frequencies for it to get enough traction.

They're not anti-PT, but they'll never argue for PT at the expense of cars.

Re: Shift Hindmarsh Stadium into the city

I don't see the need to relocate to the city, or near AO. Hindmarsh is near the city and well connected to transport — I think there is value in building up Hindmarsh as an inner suburb destination (along with Bowden), with the stadium and Entertainment Centre as the centrepieces, infill around the ...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

Surprised the Parklands Preservation Society aren't protesting this. So long as the site is landscaped well I expect it would fit in with their aims of the parklands as an open public space. While some hard surfaces go down for skating purposes they aren't really much different than those laid down...
