Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

That analysis is fine in theory, but in reality it is a lot more complex. There is also the annoyance factor, people for some reason prefer to catch express services over all stop services even if there is a longer wait for departure. For example, I have seen people catch a later express train than...

Re: SA Economy

As requested....... SA records highest level of population growth in five years – but still lags behind every other state South Australia has a population paradox – we’re growing faster than at any time since 2014 but being eclipsed by Tasmania. What does this mean for our economy? Daniel Wills, St...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

Having worked in 400KWS back when it was first built, most people found it very workable. The free tram right out front actually made meetings in the 'core' of the CBD easier to get to than it is for a lot of offices located, say, in the Hindmarsh Sq vicinity. I do think there are a number of busin...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

That’s not really a great location for office space. But superb for apartments. Please explain why not a good location for office space? Not a prime location if you were going to build 18 levels of office space. I know offices exist in the southern part of KW St, I’m just saying it’s not the best.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

A city loop and extension to North Adelaide is a no brainer The others I doubt very much They are close to the city and well served by regular bus services In the future if these areas become denser , maybe Agree though it will need to be a Labor Govt that does it Sent from my SM-J730G using Tapata...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Why do we have so many buses that go from the CBD to the outer northern suburbs? Should just have one bus that goes from CBD up Main North Rd that terminates in Elizabeth. All other outer North buses should be feeder routes to the nearest train station. This will of course be even more effective onc...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The Gawler Line can be made more efficient by culling several stations: Kudla, Nurlutta, Parafield Gardens and Greenfields can all be removed. Agree. We should then have a 15 minute daytime all stops service (like Seaford) for the remaining stations. Afterwards, all stations should be upgraded to r...

I have always thought that there is a big opportunity to build a park and ride at West Lakes, similar to the TTP park and ride.

What about Johnny Farnham? He’s a notable omission
What notable connection to Adelaide does he have?
Sorry I’m mistaken. I thought he grew up here, but having googled it, he didn’t.

No, one that can be shared. But as said above, a City Loop could open up ARS to make it more feasible.
Make ARS for feasible for what? If we build an underground CBD loop, ARS as it currently stands is all but redundant!

I visited a number of those buildings about a week ago.

They have created a series of iconic new buildings over the past 10 years.

The Harris Scarfe space would be perfect for Uni Qlo. Whether they take up 1 or 2 floors though - I think 1 floor would be sufficent for them in comparison to their other stores.
Would any major chain be game enough to take up space on the first floor in Rundle Mall anymore?

Its a stock standard building. Nothing great about it, nothing all that bad either. Simplistic more then anything else.
Just wait till the monstrosity next door goes up.
Agree. Adelaidean doesn’t win any beauty awards but it’s no shocker either.
