[U/C] Re: [U/C] Re: SkyCity Adelaide Casino Expansion | 55m | 12 Levels | Hotel

This is a week old (sorry, forgot to upload), but shows a different perspective from other photos and also shows the Festival Tower columns starting to come out of the ground! Do the columns wed this site to the existing design or would it be possible for another design to be engineered to the same...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

As I have said before, the moment the Libs started talking about tunnels etc was just a delay tactic not to build anything. Another 10yrs is a horrible thought, but gives a clear understanding why someone has allowed a brand new petrol station built on the eastern side of south roads at Eddy Town. ...

That's the problem in SA..they are making it up as they go along, stage by stage. And the clowns sitting in parliament are talking about tunnels...HAAAAAAAAAAAH.. [/quote] Yeah totally agree. The ALP plan was fine. A couple of short tunnels under Bradman and HB Road. Why pursue this fantasy of a tun...

Re RTCC.

Was the then Bank SA tower when constructed in the late 80's built to the RTCC ceiling, or was RTCC increased at that time to accommodate the tower?

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

What is with the total deteriorated landscaping at the Festival Centre tram stop. Have the ACC washed their hands of it? It's an absolute disgrace. This is the one of Adelaide's icon destination points and the area surrounding the Tram stop looks like something one would see in a third world country...

:applause: Will be a fantastic day when the wrecking ball meets the current POS building. Absolutely. The location is at the very core of the commercial district and the current hideosity is an embarrassment. As is the building across the road (National Mutual) not to mention the row of dischevilled...

[U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

With bits of MATS basically built in some form or another, most of the rest should be built in some form or another as well. A second motorway/freeway running north/north east should be built, as the northern suburbs will be where most of our new population growth will happen and it's too wide of a...

So there is a change.org petition going around about "saving the Thebarton Theatre". People already have their panties in a bunch about a demolition that will never happen. Does not bode well for anything other than a completely buried tunnel through here, regardless of how well a trench might mana...

It may have already been posted on here, however if not the health of the fig trees at the northern end is not good. In fact they may well be dying. So the whole saga of preserving some fig trees at some point in the not too distant future could well be a dead issue (no pun intended) Before anyone a...
