[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

My prediction (have I said this before?) is nothing remotely as grand: The surface roads/trench configuration will continue south from the end of T2T - West Thebby will go, as will most of the heritage buildings along South Road. There'll be a short cut and cover tunnel under HBR intersection to sp...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Also a question regarding this tunnel that's being investigated, if they did go with a cut and cover tunnel, how would they deal with traffic management? Surely they wouldn't demolish properties forg a temporary road? Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk Well, nobody knows right now do they? There'...

[APP] Re: 269 North Terrace | 118m | 34 Levels | Student accommodation

I’m dissapponted the legal challenge failed purely because how shit this student tower is going to look in such a prominent location. But I really don’t understand the logic behind the challenge. If Kyren did buy this property too would Adelaidean be as tall or what...? And say in the near future wh...

Re: Website not Secure?

Sorry it took a while but should be fixed now. Still coming up on iOS/Safari. Although I have noticed the same "website not secure" notification pop up on some other sites too when logging in while using Safari, so perhaps it's a an iOS/Safari issue, especially if you've applied a fix and it's stil...

[APP] Re: 322 KWS - Echelon | 114m | 2 x 31 Lvls | Mixed Use

I wonder why this didn’t work? Was it the marketing ? Who was this aimed at? I’ve heard it was geared toward retirees? From what I understood it was to be a high rise retirement village essentially. It was probably the better design of the 100m+ proposals imho. Shame they couldn't rework it and gea...

They really need a creative in their department. This looks cheap af. Much better than coiled razor wire. i suspect its primary purpose is to prevent people from walking across the "bridge" or trying to be the first to tag it. Those orange screens wont stop taggers.

Not for the whole corridor. Hell, people were still building along the corridor last I checked. On a positive note, hopefully this has finally got an unstoppable momentum, no matter what method is used. Both sides of politics have been woeful in the past at a long term vision for freight and genera...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

A couple of things. There was a grand union at that intersection from 1909 to 1958, with no major earthworks required. The curves were much tighter. There's a grand union in Melbourne at the Balaclava junction. It's a much narrower intersecrion than North Tce/King Wm. intersection, and modern trams...

Ermm...the local traffic in the area? or do you think that to go from Torrens Road to Port Road, people should have to deviate all the way to South Road/T2T?? :sly: It's a vital link to Port Road and Torrens Rd(and onto Days Road, Regency Rd and an alternative to getting to the NS Motorway via Libe...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

I imagine that the narrow underpass serves as a traffic calming device. Drivers normally drive slower in narrower lanes. What is the perceived benefit of speeding up the traffic by widening the underpass? What would be the effect of closing it to vehicular traffic completely and making it pedestria...
