Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

So, in summary, the changes were proposed to address the reasons why some people do not currently use public transport. The proposal was then dumped because some people who currently use it complained. If "we" want more people on public transport, it has to be made more attractive to the people who ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Some tweaks to AdelaideMetro timetables and stop numbering effective from tomorrow - doesn't appear to be much but normally there is more than a day's notice (appears AdMet only posted it today). https://adelaidemetro.com.au/Announcements2/Service-updates/Adelaide-Metro-bus-service-changes A number...

The Playford Ramada hotel has come out for Tender today.

So far only seen Romaldi involved.
At least that had not been cancelled like other things near the car park.

Re: Beer Garden

I think our best option is Hindmarsh with temporary stands to fill the corners in. I dont think Adelaide Oval meets FIFA requirements. Probably too late to start building a new rectangular stadium in the city, knowing there'd be construction delays. If it was the mens World Cup I reckon we would be...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

The Overland really must mean something more to regional Victorians than it does to regional South Australians. The Vics are stumping up more money to keep the Overland running. From In Daily .... Victorian country newspaper, the Stawell Times-News, reported today the Victorian Government had signe...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

What might be the next big wind farm in SA, and what does it need to make it happen? Ceres Project on Yorke Peninsula - possibly waiting for Rex Minerals' Hillside Mine near Ardrossan Port Augusta Renewable Energy Park Twin Creek - opponents talk about destroying wombat habitat and the Barossa envir...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

By the same token it's unlikely Mawson Lakes would be as successful as it is without UniSA there, and given the MFP proposals it made sense to have a uni campus there that does a lot of engineering and IT stuff. The Levels Campus (now called Mawson Lakes) of the South Australian Institute of Techno...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

There needs to be some changes to the network. Now it's back to square 1. Agreed. Now instead of one big package, there are likely to be minor changes and tweaks all over the place, and every change that results in a bus stop moving or a road not serviced will have Koutsantonis crowing about how Li...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

The State Government looks set to back down from its controversial plan to cut hundreds of bus stops and routes. https://www.facebook.com/9NewsAdelaide/videos/957724154677031/ An epic fail from Knoll. Now he needs to fall on his sword and resign as minister. It might have been a good idea overall (...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

By that argument, nearly every rooftop solar panel in the state should be disconnected, as they don't provide reliable electricity to the grid 24/7. There is already talk of disconnecting rooftop solar during times of high generation as it overloads the grid. Rooftop solar is now getting to the poi...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Why should renewables subsidise gas? That's absurd to me, presupposing both the continuing cost of gas and the absence of other options? In any event, we (emphasised, because we own it) have an abundance of gas; it's only expensive because we haven't reserved it for our use first, exports second. E...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

If only the federal government had built the Heavy Water Reactor at Jervis Bay then we probably wouldn’t need to worry about having a failing South Africa-tier Power grid. If we'd had a nuclear power station since the 1970s, it would be due for retirement anyway. We'd still be discussing whether a ...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Contracts, Service & Policy

Well when that bus has no bus lane its stuck in the traffic jam like everyone else. The very least State Government should be doing is bus priority at more traffic lights. For example stop 16 southbound Main North Road could have a B Light allowing the bus jump ahead similiar to arrangement at Jame...
