Re: SA Economy

Of course, people into food/wine, know of Adelaide. Is that a reason for people to move to SA? Are they booming industries creating tens of thousands of jobs? No. There's the problem with that example. Ship building in Whyalla from the 40's to 70's. Problem with that is obvious. It's 2019. Most Sout...

Re: SA Economy

Marshall hasn't done shit to address it, regardless of what the figures say. The only thing that's going to stop young people moving interstate is jobs and economic opportunity in SA. The jobs are interstate. The economic opportunities are interstate. Until there's jobs and economic opportunity here...

Those intersection costs though - when you've gotta pay those lollypop workers 70 bucks an hour to stand around, no wonder it costs so much.
They don't get paid $70/hour.

Well I'm surprised that the developer didn't wait for the neighbouring block to hit the market before they did anything with this site.

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

So a $40m price tag is too much for something that has already been promised and there is a lot riding on this project going ahead meanwhile the government have promised $98m for an upgrade of the Magill Road/Port Rush Road intersection which is total funding overkill. I have not seen an explanatio...

[PRO] Re: [PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

How cost effective is storing concrete sleepers he claims are for Brighton right at the Port Spur site, which is not an active railyard? Does Knoll think we’re all idiots? There is a smelly lack of transparency happening which FOI will no doubt reveal. Will the $40 million detailed costing (nice ro...

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

LOL, and now Knoll is claiming they're not for the Port Dock project, but for Rail Revitalisation and projects like the Brighton Rd and Torrens Rd level crossings. That's why they're all lined up next to the Port Dock project. :roll: So they've ordered materials for two projects that are still in t...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

All valid questions, it will certainly be an interesting transition, but it will happen eventually so we might as well plan around it. The reality is, we are decades away from driverless cars being the norm. And my main point is that we are similarly decades away from an extensive freeway network (...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Call me daft, but somehow I just can't see driverless cars being a big thing for many decades yet. But nor will an extensive freeway network. So is it even feasible to build such a network in the amount of time it would take automation to potentially deem it unnecessary? You keep saying things like...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I'd still question the point of spending $billions now to solve a problem that is quite likely to not exist in the future. I'd bet good money that the pace of population growth and traffic congestion in Adelaide will not outpace technology-based solutions to mass people movement which don't require...
