Re: Mad March 2019

Interesting that 200000 have attended Yabarra. Of all the great things about the festival, this wasn't one of them. I thought the display was most underwhelming, and some of the inflatable displays downright tacky. People wandering around on the bank seemed to be a bit lost, bored or bewildered. I ...

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

Building over train lines is expensive and not always desirable. We have better opportunities for suburban infill in the existing properties surrounding the train station, as well as the vacant land on the existing station which will be used for mixed use business. When the time comes and demand is...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

To hasten death of the Findon arena and building the case for a city-based facility, the 36ers are moving to the Entertainment Centre from next season: https://www.outline.com/SyXvWH Could not be a better move as far as promotion of the 36ers. The stadium at Beverly is tired, cramped and was build ...

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

In hindsight, the West Lakes devlopment should have left the stadium and instead be built at Seaton Park or the golf course. The new development would already have a railway to the city :wallbash: At least the Port Adelaide development will have Port Dock railway station. While we are discussing ur...

Re: Mad March 2019

Was in Adelaide a couple of weekends back for a function, with a mate from Perth. Spent a great Saturday night bar hopping from West end to East end including a bite in Peel street. A seriously good night, and my mate was genuinely very impressed by the vibe in Adelaide.-The venues, the variety, the...

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

There's substantial space for TODs at Kilkenny and Seaton Park stations. Thank you. There is literally acres of wasted ex industrial space adjacent to Kilkenny station before we go carving up golf courses. The Grange train is more than viable as an all stops, particularly with urban infill, and to ...

F. F. S Just make Grange a spur line line...........change at Woodville.

Port Dock - City........all stops

Outer Harbor - City.....all stops to Woodville, express to city.
Surely it is not worthwhile to run a train (Grange) for 4 stops with a bloody great golf course in the middle?

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

North of underpass: 46k In underpass: 36k South of underpass: 51k Source: LocationSA (2017 data) Thanks. That implies that the underpass see's 2/3 to 3/4 of the traffic compared to other nearby sections. That would likely imply that while 2 lanes either direction is low for a freeway, it's unlikely...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

...Which doesn't make sense, as it would merely be an interchange like Oaklands: some buses would stop there, but none would terminate there. What population do you regard as being needed to support a railway? Do you think building the Seaford Line was justified? Have you noticed that many of the s...

[APP] Re: 269 North Terrace | 118m | 36 Levels | Student accommodation

But at-least the Stamford is old enough that it's probably due for some kind of a makeover. Unfortunately with a lot of the aforementioned buildings, they're mostly new and won't need a re-treatment for some time. I actually find it strange that they gave 1 KWS a facelift when it was probably one o...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

claybro, WTF do you think it is that I'm proposing? Your comprehension of my previous post seems to be very poor. So let me sum up my "poor" understanding. You have apparently presented one option of a cheaper alternative of UPGRADING EXISTING TONSLEY STATION to interchange status in lieu of the cu...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Rubbish! All the stations I mentioned would be positioned for optimal bus interchange opportunities, so that all outer southern suburbs residents would be able to catch the bus to the train station to get tho the City more quickly. Thus means Southlink (or their successor) wouldn't need to deploy s...

[APP] Re: 269 North Terrace | 118m | 36 Levels | Student accommodation

Looking at the renders, I have to say I actually like this much more than the Adelaidean. It's sleak, clean, has something of a Manhattan banking tower (a touch of 1970's retro). The Adelaidean is busy, unclear, looks like a cheap 1990s resort hotel, or more like somebody took West Franklin (which ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

claybro, I make no apologies for presenting the cheaper option. DPTI's Flinders Link plan is catastrophic for Adelaide's long term development, as it would make it very difficult to extend the line further (and if they did somehow manage it, the route would be very slow and expensive). However it d...
