Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Labor will announce this weekend that they will take back any tram or train services that are outsourced by the Liberals if they are elected at the 2022 state election. I believe the option of taking back the bus contracts will be explored too. Good news for those of us who have concluded that ther...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Found this in a magazine I picked up from World Routes, adds something to the "where next" conversation! I'm not sure what the reason is for quite different layout of the two graphs.

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Handrails don’t look too bad. They will be replaced in coming weeks with the same large screens found on the other bridges. When driving on it at the moment I am taking in the view. Dont see why the bridge would need throw screens as it is not designed for pedestrian access. Yes you could lob an ap...

Re: Glenelg Ferry & Cruise ship terminal

The first Glenelg Jetty was 381 metres long with a T-head and wooden lighthouse. This section was destroyed by fire in 1873. In 1906 a three-storey pavilion was added at the end of the jetty and railway tracks were laid along its length to service coastal shipping. The aquarium was built in 1929, s...

Re: Glenelg Ferry & Cruise ship terminal

lol Adelaide and damn grass :P How deep is the water at the end of the jetty? Had a look at the ships coming in this cruise season, up to around 8~m draught at most. Extend a new more solid 'pier' further out then the current jetty, slap a tram line on it? :banana: I'm pretty sure that by the time ...

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

Are they eliminating the right turn from Kings road onto PWR? Not sure where you mean, kings road and port Wakefield road dont intersect. Doesn't Bolivar road end at the roundabout with kings road the new intersecting road? That's how I understood the plans to do that roundabout too. However the ro...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Looks like the Darlington road will be called The Southern Expressway (not the North South Motorway) Permanent overhead signage has now been installed at the ayliffes road entrance. Makes sense given it's not connected to any other parts of NSM, nor will it be for at least some years to come. Also ...

So what i read is there will be a signalised intersection at Kings Road and at Hodgson Road, that'll be close to one another
It looks like it will be about 350 metres.

[U/C] Re: New Calvary Hospital | 60m | 12 lvls | Cnr Angas/Pulteney

From 21/9. Looks great in the sun. Is this really completely finished? I swear the renders had the Calvary hospital logo on that giant blank white column on the right of this picture? Surely having spent so much money to build this you would think the logo would feature somewhere? The hospitals are...

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

Surely the next traffic switch to a new bridge will be the new port Wakefield northbound at the northern interchange? As I recall, there are four distinct second-tier contracts each for a section of the project (roughly centred on each interchange). Therefore which switch is "next" depends on the r...

[APP] Re: 203 North Terrace | 109m | 33 levels | Student Accom

If this goes ahead, it’ll be the third recent student accomodation to be built over 100m (along with Twin St and the other North Tce one). Wonder when the market reaches saturation point. I wonder how easy it is to reconfigure "student accommodation" to anything else when the market moves to requir...

Remember, these are the people who brought you a one-way freeway.
It was a solution that worked for its time. they are also the people who are undoing the reversible lane on Flagstaff Road - was that created when Labor was in government?
