[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

The new drive-through video of the Regency to Pym project is up now. As always, feedback is welcome! https://youtu.be/TcyIHxtngB4 Cant remember if I suggested this from one of your previous videos, but perhaps slow the footage down on key areas like the bridge construction. But other then that :app...

Re: Moving the airport to a less populated area

[...] Why they have an airport that has 10x the traffic compared to Adelaide is also interesting, is it geography? Has the state of Texas targeted this? Combine the population of Dallas and Fort Worth and their greater metro area and you are looking at over 7.5 million people (US Census Bureau 2019...

Re: #Official Defence Thread

That's why I said it's either being delayed till they announce work is officially starting on the frigates and subs, which will be accompanied by a rounded off figure of "new" jobs for those projects, and then oh btw we're sending 700 maintenance jobs to WA, but yeh you got XXXX new jobs here. Or th...

Re: #Official Defence Thread

Any news yesterday about the proposed shift to WA of collins class maintenance from Scmo? Could not access on line his Osborne speech or any other from him yesterday. Hopefully no change - we cant afford mid stream alterations like that - esp. in covid. Did he say anything about infrastructure spen...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Yes because solar and wind has really driven the price down for consumers in South Australia. Oh wait a minute....reality at the door :roll: [emoji38] Actually, solar and wind are the cheapest sources of electricity we have in this state. It's the gas and diesel generators (the latter which are use...

Re: News & Discussion: National Broadband Network

If the government had insisted on "fibre or nothing", would as many homes have had NBN internet at >15Mb/s at the beginning of the COVID-19 shutdown as we did? It seems that this "upgrade" is scheduled to start after the first rollout is finished. My FTTN NBN is significantly faster than the ADSL i...

Re: Moving the airport to a less populated area

I'd say well beyond 50 years we wont see the airport moved, or a new airport built. Even with the best case scenario for population growth.
But that doesn't mean we can't theorize what ifs.

[U/C] Re: SkyCity Adelaide Casino Expansion | 55m | 12 Levels | Hotel

Multi million dollar casino expansion and new hotel, but the old building still has a rusted out flag pole. It's the small things and finer details sometimes that make the bigger impression.

did you get permission to take that photo? :lol:

Probably just for within the work site it self, might be safety related.

Re: Moving the airport to a less populated area

Actually I think it may have been Dallas. They have an airport, Dallas Love Field Airport, about 6km from the start of tall buildings (their uptown) or 9km from their official "downtown". This isn't even the main airport for the region, with the huge Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport serving 7...
