Re: News & Discussion: Trams

At least when you are standing on the tracks to read it, you will know in real time if you are about to be run over. 😉 Reminds me of back in 2008 they installed those dot-matrix info screens at some train stations, CityRail in Sydney had them since the late 80s-early 90s and were phasing them out a...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

The order for new electric trains for the Gawler line has just been cut from 15 3-car sets down to 12. Stupid decision, we'll need more trains not less. I remember the last Labor govt were attacked by the Liberals for not buying enough trams and ended up grabbing some second-hand from Madrid for do...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

a city with the size and population of adelaide needs a north south non stop motorway at the very minimum. we are the only mainland capital city without one and have fallen well behind. Not quite.. in Sydney there is still 8km of arterial road with about 22 sets of lights between the M2 Motorway an...

Re: News & Discussion: Other Transport Projects

Those pictures really say all this. That station should definitely be an extreme example, but even a station is actually quite unacceptable to get worse in that situation. Which pictures? What station? Very similar to this post on page 1 Those photos really say it all. That station must surely be a...

[APP] Re: 51 Pirie Street | 114m | 28 Levels | Hotel

The hotel design looks good and is a decent height, but I think I prefer the original proposal from back in 2010 8)

The facade of that heritage building should be preserved, maybe move it down the street in front of the ACC building so that it's right next door to the Epworth Building.

On the topic of Pirie St, was walking around yesterday and noticed that most of the zebra crossing outside the council building has now been removed. :toilet:
Maybe to be replaced with something like this in South Brisbane: :lol:

What is Ibis going to do for parking?
Same thing a lot of city hotels do, use one of the many many parking stations in the city.

Looks good, great to see another hotel interested in Adelaide. My only concern with this is if the Western side is a massive concrete wall :(

[U/C] Re: GPO Exchange | 85m | 22 Levels | Office

As I hoped, this one is reminding me more and more of 101 Collins Street, Melbourne. You're right about that. lol how? These two buildings look nothing alike, and 101 Collins is 170m taller. I think it reminds me more of the Pre-Refurb ANZ building on Martin Place in Sydney, similar height, similar...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

The parking station should be demolished, if there's need for parking it should be built underground.

I dont know how they got away with building it in the first place so close to the Botanic Gardens. :roll:

[COM] Re: Armada Arndale (Redevelopment) | $200m

Maybe the owners of Arndale should pressure the state govt to rename Kilkenny train station to 'Arndale Centre', it's about a 10min walk from the shopping centre which is a similar distance as Westfield Marion is from Oaklands station :wink:

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

I know right. Gawler electrification work began in 2012.

If only they'd just get on with it and put up the wires, like why can't they do it as quickly as Oaklands seems to be getting done? :roll:

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

I think it's just some people don't know how to drive. The lanes in the underpass are 2.7m wide, the average SUV and 4WD is about 2m wide, our standard road lanes are a very generous 3.5m. In the suburbs there's less than 2.7m on some streets when there are cars parked both sides. Getting though tig...
