Re: Crane Counter: CBD 8 | Metro 4| Total 12

If you use Chrome as your browser photos come out rotated through 90 degrees yet if you use internet explorer they remain correct. This has something to do with how Chrome interprets portrait pictures by trying to transfer them to landscape pictures. Firefox, Chrome and Edge display the thumbnails ...

Re: Major construction & supply chains?

Hi, so, I have no real idea about the logistics of a major construction project, but was curious how dependent are they on outside supply? Practically, if SA keeps constructions sites open, i.e. as long as the state gov doesn't shutdown non-essential work, can companies actually complete the projec...

Re: Beer Garden

Apples and oranges. One is a state controlled entity that was orderesld to do it, the other is a private corporation. China also refused US assistance. Of course, only radical communists in SA who support the communist Chinese dictatorship would be supportive and think the better move is to raid ot...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Team Adelaide is mostly Liberal-aligned. The rest are mixed. Simms is obviously a former Greens senator, and we all know Moran to be conservative-leaning. But, of course, municipal politics in this state is supposed to be non-partisan... So Team Adelaide reflects the current "will of the people" ac...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Do "Team Adelaide" and "Team not-Adelaide" align to state political parties in any way, or are they across state politics with their own arbitrary divisions?

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Lots of routes will disappear. Other routes will be dramatically changed. Also quite a few through routing changes. Total new Route numbers for majority of routes. The 44x, 45x and 46x routes sound fairly much as they are now. Doesn't seem to be a significant change in the coverage area for new dev...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

People are really struggling with reading comprehension here. Skybus will only be delivering airside, shuttle services not city connections. Although why the airport feels the need to outsource such basic operations is an interesting question. Yeah that is very interesting indeed. There's only 2 sh...

Re: News & Discussion: National Broadband Network

Surely we would be better served if 5G rollout was beefed up rather than trying to connect every single premesis to NBN. Radio waves have an implicit maximum (shared) bandwidth. If everyone used 5G mobile data instead of fixed lines and local wifi, I imagine (but have not seen any study to confirm ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

You guys are talking about transport into the city. Wasn't the press release only about the bus to the stand-off aircraft, and the bus to the long-term car park. Does Adelaide Airport's contractor really charge the passengers for these trips?

Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

If they shut the borders, would freight/semi deliveries & flights ie cargo in/out of SA then stop? Or would you expect this to be exempt? Does anyone know the value of how much we import vs export (interstate and overseas) as a state? Would rail then be the alternative in/out of SA? I guess "they" ...

Re: News & Developments: Elizabeth & Salisbury

The site on Womma Road (just east of Stebonheath Road, south side) that had an aluminium and steel place on it was flattened a few weeks ago. A new concrete slab building is going up, and large underground tanks being installed today, so I assume it is another new fuel outlet. There are no signs to...

Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

Coles & Woolies are struggling to supply their stores. It's not just the stores struggling now, but the distribution centres. There's literally no point in doing this, because within an hour of stores opening, the essential supplies that everyone is trying to hunt down are gone. They do not get aro...

Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

I suspect night replenishment might be where Coles choose to deploy the 5000-odd casual staff they are reportedly taking on. My guess was that it is business continuity risk management. They want to have 5000 people who have already undergone whatever staff induction and training might be required,...
