[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Hmm. Fans sitting square on to a centre court which is diagonally tens of metres away. Check. Barely adequate makeshift facilities. Check. Much fanfare from adoring Adelaide media ignoring Adelaide facilities as a laughing stock. Check. Not much has changed in 70 odd years eh?

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

A city loop and extension to North Adelaide is a no brainer The others I doubt very much They are close to the city and well served by regular bus services In the future if these areas become denser , maybe Agree though it will need to be a Labor Govt that does it Sent from my SM-J730G using Tapata...

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

Nice views but any chance of one colour of grass in elder park preferably green. It looks shocking. It should really resemble Parliament House Canberra or the West End Brewery river grass. I know all the events that are held there cause it. Heavy use aside, the ACC staff have no idea about coring o...

Why is this utterly embarrassing effort still listed as a vision on this thread? You all know deep down, now this roof is on, this will be as good as it gets for decades to come.

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

The main point is that even for an elevated road, the section through Thebarton and Mile End is currently only two lanes each direction, so there is no room to put an elevated road unless entire strips of houses and business on one or both sides of the road are wiped out. By the time compulsory acq...

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

I don't think we should contemplate trying to shoehorn a square field stadium into the Memorial drive site. Surely though a decent undercover arena for tennis and basketball and other one off events is warranted. Beverly is a joke of a location for basketball, and the new upgrade here is a bit of a ...

From AdelaideNow: An elevated roadway should be constructed over South Rd to avoid tunnels and the decade it will take to build them, the Civil Construction Federation says. As the State Government prepares to release its preferred option to finish the final stages of the North-South Corridor, the ...

Let's not forget though that the main goal that the Government wants to achieve is a non stop corridor from Gawler to Old Noarlunga. Does the non stop motorway have to follow the South Road exactly? What I am getting at is there could be a elevated roadway above Port Road and James Congdon Drive be...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

So far Labor has stayed silent on their policy/proposal for the final 10.5km. I expect it could be a political issue before the next election [max. 2 years 3 months time]. However if the Libs get tenders, sign contracts in the meantime for it to be a 10-year+ plan then that's it, right? We're Labor...

Good to hear The Reject Shop will be returning to the Port

I was hoping the port might be attracting less of these type of retailers... not more of the same.

Re: Great Southern train from Adelaide to Brisbane: Australia's new luxury train unveiled

Wow !! Look at those prices !! Definitely for rich train enthusiasts only!! How bloody rediculous. It's not the Orient Express. There is absolutely no history to this route, and how could any level of service justify nearly $8k for a couple of days stuck on a train, through some pretty boring count...

Was hoping this might get better as it progressed... but it's awful. Just awful. This is our main state tennis stadium ffs. Looks more like a local suburban leisure centre constructed by the local council.

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

If the viaduct is chosen for section between Edwardstown and Tonsley only the Daws Road point will need an interchange I think. The service road at ground level will see a lot less traffic so congestion won't be an issue. You would think basic on/off ramp setup and then something more significant f...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

my guess would he that tunneling is too problematic, if they don't want to acquire all the land back then an elevated road may be the only option. :2cents: There is nothing problematic about tunnelling in Adelaide other than the states finances. It seems "issues" are used to prevent things happenin...
