Re: Connect the Gawler and Outer Harbor rail lines

Why stop there? Lay tracks on the old Semaphore and Northfield lines and then you'd have quite a long east-west route in the north of the city. Much similar to Melbourne's Suburban Rail Loop, but much cheaper to construct since most of the route is at surface level and already there. We still don't...

Really wishing this was taller. Those curves are so sexy.
Highly reflective glazing in a curved shape always looks good. Because the sunlight and surroundings reflect at subtly different angles on each pane of glass.

The casino building will be a ripper once finished.

[PRO] Re: [PRO] Re: Torrens Road Grade Separation

Wouldn't you include a grade separation of Hawker Street while you are at it considering it is only 500m away from Torrens Road? The rail itself doesn't move, Torrens Road will go over the tracks on a bridge, so there is no impact on Hawker Street. Fun fact, Hawker Street used to have a bridge when...

No word/plans yet on what will be happening to the Wakefield hospital when Calvary move out in the coming months. Does anyone here know more? The big question is will Cromwell demo it for a big new development or just renovate it (and if so, for what?) It’s a big 8,700 sqm site... It’s hard to imag...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

A second airport dedicated to freight is not supported by SA export data by $$$ value. Cant see Infrastructure Australia given it much priority. SA exports are down to 2.25% of Australia’s exports by value and very little of that is air freighted in dedicated cargo planes. Main SA exports by value ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

How many cargo flights do we get? The tiny amount we get doesn't justify a second airport just for the sake of it. There's a lot of it that gets sent on commercial international flights. I wouldn't say its enough to justify an entire airport for it. We haven't seen a Cathay Cargo aircraft for years...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

The freeway and airport of GlobeLink are incidental to the key point of the railway. It will be a slight improvement to rail freight between Melbourne and Adelaide, but more significant for rail freight between Melbourne and Perth/Darwin. Putting in a freeway in the same corridor at the same time m...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

I can’t see it happening for passengers .. it’s just too far away with our relatively small population & amount of flights. The time to travel there/back won’t justify it. I think it will be hard enough getting the business model to justify the $1bn-$2bn spend. Can I ask the forum, why do you think...

No superlatives about the design, but nice, elegant, timeless glazing which will date well.
