Re: After the North South Corridor..

The next corridor that the State Gov should focus on improving is Tapleys Hill Road. Grade separations: Tapleys Hill/Trimmer Tapleys Hill/Grange Roads Tapleys Hill/Henley Beach Roads Tapleys Hill/Burbridge Roads I couldn't agree more. Journeys between the north-west to the south west shouldn't need...

[VIS] Re: Interstate Trains at Adelaide Railway Station

How do we attract to Virgin Trains to come to Adelaide and run services between Adelaide and Melbourne? By all means let GSR run cruiseships on rails whereas a company like Virgin could focus on no frills services. you can't attract an international company like that without proving that they could...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

To be fair, while street view reveals few regulatory significant trees, it's not clear to me why they'd need to clearfell the lot nor why landscape restoration isn't factored into DPTI's plans. The residents are within their rights to push for a more amenable outcome, although could perhaps lay off...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

I see both sides of the story re: the trees. It does make Ovingham and Dudley Park stations look a little more aesthetically pleasing. The noise argument is worth further discussion, because electric trains are basically silent. Yes Electric trains are quieter, but wasn't it residents near the Bela...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

Hopefully the hundreds of millions is residential development will mean that government stimulus will become less relevant in the near future. But really, what is with developers and their allergy to public transport as an inclusive part of their develooements. Why aren't the relevant developers ban...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

And my main point is that we are similarly decades away from an extensive freeway network (other than the NS motorway) - not that I'm aware of any level of government proposing one be built, but the opinion of several posters on this thread is that further new large roads will be required after thi...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I'm not sure I buy the argument that we're going to need more big roads in the future to cope with increased congestion. In fact I would say there is a strong argument that we're approaching peak congestion with the rapidly impending semi-automation and eventual full-automation of vehicles. Especia...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

in hindsight it would have been a far better option for the state government to redevelop the Adelaide aquatic centre into the state aquatic centre rather than dumping it out at Oaklands Park. Then we would have a state maintained centre, in public hands, with exclusive public access in a public par...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

The Adelaide parklands would have to be the most over rated, under utilised patch of dirt of any capital city in Australia. They are neither native bush, or manacured park. Contrary to popular belief, the only thing poeple from other states know about the parklands is when they drive through them, a...

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

At the time the council was estimating upkeep costs of up to $500,000 a year to keep the bridge and surrounds in good condition, hoping the state government would help out. I assume that state contribution never ended up happening? One wonders what ACC do with the millions in extra rates they are r...
