Re: #UC: 5 lvl Car Park & Pedestrian Plaza - Adelaide Airpor

I would argue it's not "convenient" to make people walk an extra 200-500 metres with luggage but im not lazy, so ill do it.

Re: #U/C - Adelaide Airport Control Tower - 50m - $16 millio

The new control tower is almost there. It looks seriously like it could be ready for business in the not too distant future. All the glass is in, and the paint job now extends to the base with only a few sections left to be completed. http://www.5dme.net/latest/03-10-11/20111003_6.JPG http://www.5dm...
