[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Ran past the Torrens Road intersection and saw the new screens that have been put up.

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

That large shed is big enough to build two ships side by side! Remember, this is only the shipyard. There is a boatyard to be built alongside. Approximately $1b worth of infrastructure at Osborne over the next couple of years. Thanks Spurdo. I went down to have a look a while ago and was blown away ...

Re: News & Developments: Prospect

Ok, so not technically Prospect but close enough. There is a DPA in place to rezone a 8060 sqm site on Belford Street in Devon Park from commercial to medium residential. Not a huge development (about 40 dwellings consisting of townhouses and apartments) however with the just completed Park Link on ...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I’m loving how they have dug holes in the T2T already!! Making all traffic slow to 60 because the far left lane in each direction has a plate over the hole... really‽ From those pictures, T2T really is the poverty stricken section. Are those poles at Grange, Port and Torrens actually finished? Is th...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Here's an idea. Remove all the relatively young natives trees that have been planted at the site of the new WCH that we all know will be ripped up shortly. 'Sell' them to the residents of both Devonport Terrace and Exeter Terrace as trees that will be used for the remediation post project completion...

[PRO] Re: Torrens Road Grade Separation

Wouldn't you include a grade separation of Hawker Street while you are at it considering it is only 500m away from Torrens Road?

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

A net gain to open space (as in, parklands restoration) as well as full community access would make this tolerable. You'd presume it wouldn't need to be anywhere near as large without the full competitive swimming set up. Car parking can go underground or not at all -- public transport options (inc...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Edinburgh is home to our strategic maritime surveillance wing, that's not the kind of unit that shares space with the public It's home to a lot more then that. The maritime surveillance wing would be based at DST, not at the RAAF base. Um, no. Both maritime surveillance squadrons are based at Edinb...

There's bigger issues around than the the name of a station Like finishing the shelters at Hallett Cove and Hallett Cove Beach, maybe even Seaford Meadows and Seaford. In winter these stations with open style design are cold places to wait for a train. Do they still run diesel trains on the Seaford...

Looks good! Much better effort than the new Bowden station.
Bowden isn’t on the Seaford line...
