[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I imagine the decision on the slant of the walls would mostly depend on the available space. Unless it's required for engineering reasons it's certainly not worth the extra acquisition costs to have slanted walls.

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I'm really not understanding the hatred of the Thebby on here, it is a significant venue and a massive cultural contributor to this city. Of course there was going to be a response to any threat to it. If it's "a demolition that will never happen", then why can't the government just come straight o...

[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

Had beers sitting on Rundle Street today. The tower proper is much better than the podium. Just my opinion. Overall, happy with this being our new tallest 😀 I also enjoy an afternoon beer in the sun on rundle street. Unfortunately this tower is going to block the sun for those sitting on rundle str...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

The ABC article mentions that two schools may need to be acquired to make way, yet didn't name them. Did the News Corp article mention school names? Yes, Richmond Primary School and Kilmara Primary/Convent, in a picture at the bottom of the printed article. I agree with the earlier sentiment, this ...

Re: 2036 Olympic Games bid for Adelaide

Kudos for big thinking, but don't waste your energy on fantasy. Australia is currently backing Brisbane for our 3rd Olympics (hoping for 2032), and I would expect Melbourne to get another go after then before any other city (by which point, it'll again be our largest city). Maybe next century Adela...

Classic Jets Fighter Museum at Parafield Airport looks like it's set to close, with all the lots being auctioned off individually.

That's really sad! Been in there a couple of times and shame more people didn't seem to know about it.

The plan for the final stretch is as follows: - new elevated structure over the Torrens - trench between the above and ANZAC Highway, with short tunnels at Henley Beach Road and Sir Donald Bradman Drive - elevated structure in Edwardstown. That sounds like a decent solution, do you have a source fo...

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

Could it have anything to do with marshal scrapping the riverbank committee or whatever it was called last year. Around the time the bridge was built there was dispute over who was going to be paying for upkeep, with the council saying they couldn't afford to take it on board. Suspect it's sat in a...

If you take away the things that make it unique, then you're completely stuck in the mode of whichever stadium in the country is the most recent is the best. That's a game that can only ever be won for a short period of time. Finding ways to leverage the unique aspects of the stadium is thinking la...

Who is talking about not having vision? Many people who support the hill remaining do so not because of a lack of vision, but because of the vision of it being intentionally unique. You talk about it attracting bigger events, but do you have any examples of events that didn't happen at AO which wou...

I personally think we should go for the Winter Olympics.
The forecast for todays July day is a high of 16c, don't think we quite fit the requirements.
Just re-open the ski slope at Mt Thebarton, and you're sorted.
I'm in.

Re: 2036 Olympic Games bid for Adelaide

An Adelaide Olympic Games bid in 2036, if successful, will be game changing and life changing for many people in Adelaide and South Australia. It will transform Adelaide and South Australia in a way that's never been done before, for many generations to come. And 2036 is Adelaide and South Australi...
