[APP] Re: 203 North Terrace | 109m | 33 levels | Student Accom

There is a chance this won't get built. The student tower next to Adelaidean has stalled. The Twin Street tower was proposed and approved ages ago and there's been no action since. The only project I can think of that is going up that is specifically student accommodation is the one on Waymouth Stre...

If this goes ahead, traffic management is going to be an absolute nightmare being at the intersection of the city's two busiest streets. The construction gantries will have to take up one lane of each street. Major congestion bottlenecks will follow.

Something doesn't seem right here.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

This will be a one term government. No doubt about it. If even their backers (business who donate their money to support their campaign) can't support the Liberals, then they have buckley's chance of mounting an effective electoral campaign. And even the most experienced political pundits would tell...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Is there a reason why they seem to have stopped halfway, and looks half-finished? Surely asphalt on the footpath isn't the final design outcome...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams


After the American Civil War the entire American South brought their gauge into line with the rest of the USA.

They converted 11,500 miles of track in 36 hours
Yeah, using black slavery... bit of an important omission there.

[VIS] Re: Interstate Trains at Adelaide Railway Station

I think one of the severely underestimated benefits is tourists looking to go on a day trip to the Hills without having to take the car (or the Barossa). I count myself in this category. If there was a passenger rail service available, which improves accessibility and a different means of getting t...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

This is a stupid policy. With the emergence of driverless AI and electric vehicles in the next 10-20 years, it is very likely that the need and demand for both on street and off street carparking spaces will actually be far less, because the newer technology vehicles will be used in a much more effi...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

I'm a little perplexed where the demand for all these hotel rooms is coming from - even if the bulk of clientele is corporate travellers. The prices that some of the chains charge for what are very basically offerings is extortionate. Doesn't seem like a satisfactory explanation.
