Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

I saw people on Facebook claim it would use 46.25MW/day at 100% capacity. I think they pulled that from the wiki page. 46.25 * 365 = 16,881.25MW/year which is 405,150MWh per year, so solar plant on the dirt out front would provide 1/63 of the power required There are currently plans to install sola...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Miniso is empty... I see this as good for mankind. Funnily enough the other similar place around on Grenfell Street (Pop Mart?) has a landlord's notice in the window, still full of pop culture knock off tat however. Wonder if the one at Churchill is still going? I have been to Churchill for the las...

Re: Adelaide Oval Redevelopment

I guess the point being, that the phenomenal cost of the AO upgrade is justifiable in terms of even just AFL games some 900000 plus thousand per year over two clubs.- A huge bonus for the CBD that AO attracts over a million extra visitors into the CBD each year, including the cricket, once again ma...

Re: Adelaide Oval Redevelopment

Then, even if Adelaide United won every home game, and soccer crowds DOUBLED to say 12000 per home game.......Now if Adelaide united go back to just a middle rung club, and there are a few "incidences" at the stadium or outside? Not a good bet if you ask me. United averaged 11,287 this year, 12,644...

Re: Adelaide Oval Redevelopment

If the tram line stopped infront of Coopers Stadium you could fill it ever week, they should have forced the entertainment center to switch the entrance to Manton street so the tram line could go down there instead of port road. I wonder if with a small upgrade to Hindmarsh (cover for eastern stand...

It was 20k for the 2000 Olympic Football tournament, You can only fit seats in at the southern corners due to the roads on the northern side.

Re: Adelaide Oval Redevelopment

Unless Hindmarsh gets redeveloped to 25,000 - 30,000 or a new venue is built with that capacity, finals will be at AO. Since the first United game at AO which drew 33,126 their attendences there haven't been amazing. The Elimination final last year vs. Brisbane only drew 20,155, followed bu the Vic...

The govt never actually explained how a Light-Rail would integrate with the existing rail network, whether it would just run between Flinders Uni and Woodlands Park and people interchange there with the train, or if the trams would share the train tracks as far as goodwood or run parallel to the ra...

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

Have also been thinking about where the on/off ramps for the North-South Motorway are likely to be. I suspect they will be very widely spaced, and only link to the most major arterial roads to minimise construction cost. I think PREXY, Regency Rd, Port Rd, Anzac Hwy, Ayliffes Rd and SEXY intersecti...

Re: COM: Adelaide Oval Redevelopment

I hate the SANFL (as an entity and an administrative organisation). Filty, terrible ethos. It's run by old male white dinosaurs who should have retired decades ago. So you hate grass roots football then? The SANFL isn't the only form of grass roots football. ChillyPhilly also stated "as an entity a...

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

A large percentage of traffic (I would guess close to 50%) that travels through Darlington of a morning and afternoon comes down the hill from either Main South Rd or Flagstaff Hill Rd and this upgrade is going to make absolutely no difference to this traffic. Currently a major bottle neck occurs a...
