[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I totally agree with you SBD. So what is your/the forums thoughts on the Fed. Govt spending $9.3billion on inland rail from Melb (via NSW) to Brisbane for freight? ie why the inland rail will work here vs road and what do you think are the differences to our situation?https://inlandrail.artc.com.au...

Community open day currently scheduled for Sunday 9 February. Likely to take another couple of weeks after that before opening to traffic.
Community open day deferred until Sunday 16 February. Will be where the current site office is near the intersection of Waterloo Corner Road.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

I understand the need to address the current scenario with the Adelaide Aquatic Centre. Deteriorating facilities, high maintenance costs etc. Not sure if the Adelaide Footy Club offering 1 lap pool is the solution. For the Adelaide Crows, i think that Thebarton Oval offers a potential solution. Room...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

Not my normal viewing, but the regional rail people managed to get a piece up on Today Tonight about the impending dismantlement of the Barossa railway: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=522246301666452 The locals say they want the railway, but will they actually use it? The population in the Baros...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Business class was certainly refurbished. Cant say the same for economy.

Part of the "showing age" comment also refers to the pedigree of the aircraft. The B777 was developed in the mid 90's with very minor upgrades / enhancements since (pending 777X). It is also much noisier than other aircraft.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

I was on EK441 / EK440 very recently. To say that both flights were half full would be generous. Not surprised about rumours of dropping back from daily.
In addition, the B777's used on this flight are showing their age. Will go with Qatar or Singapore A350 next time.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Fiji Airways offered terrible connections through Nadi. They were essentially trying to enforce a stopover when most people want to get to their destination as soon as possible. Jetstar flew ADL - AKL once upon a time. Again it failed because of the poor timings and not connecting to QF coded onward...

Good info. Thanks for posting.

The other stats that would be interesting to know are the load factors out of Adelaide.

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

This whole thing reminds me of an argument happening in many households: And old piece of clothing sits in the wardrobe doing nothing for "x" amount of years because the owner either refuses to throw out or believes that it will come back into fashion.
