Re: PRO: 330m Magic Tower Melbourne | Aus Tallest

May's fools, obviously.

That plot of land is barely 10m by 10m.

Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

An Edward Street tunnel is more palatable than land acquisition along Cross Road. Smart thinking Goodsy.

[VIS] Re: Adelaide Contemporary Art Gallery - Designs on Page 6

TBH I prefer the Adjaye Associates and BVN design. The built form appears to provide amazing viewing experiences inside, whilst still being sympathetic, yet modern and a landmark design compared to the rest of the old RAH site. The use of materials and colours is a winner too.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

However you want to spin it, $162m in new funding over four years is pathetic. We have 8% of the national population. Out of a $25b infrastructure package, we should have got $2b in new money for the next four years.

Those renders don't help the argument at all. It basically looks like the State Administration Centre Mark II.

And we do not need TWO of those monstrosities.

Re: News & Discussion: Buses

A step in the right direction. Would rather it come back under full government ownership or just under one sole operator. There are a lot of efficiencies to be made.

Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

Rereading the statement released by the State Liberals, there was mention that $1b of the project cost is for property acquisition alone. This makes me think that the project is likely to be a trench, not a tunnel, and what is meant by a short tunnel is just really a glorified way of saying a "big u...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I wouldn't say deliberate, but given the sheer amount of incompetence, it wouldn't surprise me if they've missed a few of the basics. They really couldn't run a chook raffle.
