Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Looks like all the Outer Northern bus routes may be reorganised once the electrification of the Gawler Line is complete. No more city buses from so far out....they will all be feeder buses to the train system. They just need to talk to the people who run Perth public transport and COPY what they do...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

So connecting Buses to Trains makes sense. I assume.buses to the obahn too? The map suggests the O-Bahn is part of Outer North East, so will continue with Torrens Transit. One of the joint venture partners for the north-south package that includes the trams is currently also the operator of Canberr...

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

Finally Adelaide gets a highly reflective glass facade, and interesting un-boxlike shape, but it is on a squat 12 storey structure. How about cladding the awful 80's intercontinental in this shiny glass, and we might be on to something. The shape is ok enough but that awful faux sandstone on concre...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

Because my origin is the top of Magill Rd and destination is Queen St Norwood near the western side of the Magill Rd and Portrush Rd intersection. If it’s really backed up I’ll drive down Beulah Rd, but overall it doesn’t save much time because I have to get back to the Queen St / Magill Rd interse...

Re: Glen Osmond and Fullarton Road intersection upgrade

Construction cost could be minimised by completely closing the intersection for a few weeks/months of round-the-clock work. Did you work for DPTI's rail division?? LOL. No, but I used to commute along Portrush Road back when it was only one lane each way between Kensington and Magill Roads. My solu...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

Have you ever driven on this section of road at peak hour? I do it every weekday. If it's so bad, why do you always take that route? Because my origin is the top of Magill Rd and destination is Queen St Norwood near the western side of the Magill Rd and Portrush Rd intersection. If it’s really back...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

Why is this even needed? This is just overkill. That money could have been so much better spent on more useful and worthy 'congestion busting' initiatives. Have you ever driven on this section of road at peak hour? I do it every weekday. If you have, you would understand why it’s required. Apparent...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

I don’t mind the Crows plan, however the leisure pool components must at least replace and improve upon what is there currently, no less. This is the most popular part of the Aquatic Centre.

Spaa, steam room and sauna must also be included.

If Campbelltown City Council can build and run their own indoor swimming centre (ARC), Adelaide City Council can too.

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

I wonder if either political party took to the 2022 election a bold agenda of the greatest transformation of the Adelaide parklands since they were first established, would it be a vote winner? I don’t mean development over the parklands. I mean taking a handful of our most important city (but under...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

On a tangent, I think a stadium at the golf course would be a great catalyst for better pedestrian facilities at Morphett Road and a footbridge across the river towards the hospital. Tbh, although I'm fairly tepid on the idea of a new stadium overall, this would be the worst option in my view. Bett...
