Re: What other areas should host the Tour Down Under?

Don't forget that each stage needs 2 sprint zones and 1 King of the Mountain with a significant enough gradient on the route up the hill. The sprints can be pretty much any where that a town has a roughly flat main street - not much shortage of them in SA. Are there detailed rules for a KOM? For a ...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

North Adelaide is empty becuase everyone is in the small bars or peel street Exactly! North Adelaide doesn't advertise itself well. If it wants footy/cricket fans to go that way for food/drink/entertainment, then it needs to say so in places the fans will see and consider. How many people here incl...

Re: What other areas should host the Tour Down Under?

What other areas or routes would you like to see in Tour Down Under? I personally would like to see a route starting from Mount Barker , go via the Old Princes Highway and ending in Murray Bridge Or Freeling to Truro via Kapunda and Eudunda Or Aldinga to Cape Jervis via Yankallila Tanunda to Clare ...

[PRO] Re: 10 Anzac Highway | Kaufland Supermarket

It's taking quite a while. I wonder when they'll start construction? Perhaps the Prospect one will get built first after all? Do they even have a distribution centre ready yet? Setting up a new supermarket chain from scratch is no easy feat! IGA should have spare capacity in its distribution chain ...

[U/C] Re: [U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Line marking has been changed at South Rd/Regency intersection - Initial observation seems to be quite an improvement on what was a bottleneck. What have they done? South rd has changed to 2 x lanes northbound, 2 x lanes right turn into Regency. Was previously 3 x northbound, 1 x right turn. I wond...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

I wonder how deep the water table in the area is, and if it rises when the Torrens floods. What happens if the bottom of the car park is below it? The site of the car park does rise a fair bit from the river heading up to North Terrace. Generally basements are constructed either with a waterproofin...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Just some random thoughts in response. I should imagine that if the Outer Harbor and Grange trains were converted to trams the trams would run to Adelaide Railway Station as the trains do at the moment. The money invested in the grade separation from both the Gawler line and the standard gauge also...

I just want to see a combined Woolworths, Big W, Dan Murphys and pub :lol: Coles group could probably do bigger combination though Coles, Kmart/Target, First Choice Liquor/Liquorland, Bunnings, Charlies Diner They kind of tried that concept 30 odd years ago with "SuperK" Port Adelaide.

[COM] Re: U/C: Armada Arndale Redevelopment | $200m

You keep trying to use smaller centres as a basis of comparison, but Arndale isn't a Golden Grove Village or Churchill Road etc it's one of the six big suburban malls in SA (Marion, West Lakes, TTP, Arndale, Elizabeth and Colonnades). Does anyone know where to find objective numbers (total floor ar...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

... From Adelaide to Woodville, it goes about as fast as nearby Port Road (60 km/h). Then, on the Grange line spur, the speed boards say 90 km/h. Sure enough, measured by the GPS on my phone, the train does reach 90 km/h! A typical tram cannot do this. The Grange train takes 22 minutes to travel fr...

Oh, wow... Where did he take the bus to? Looking at his Twitter feed, he does claim he was catching that bus to Morphett Vale, Woodcroft, Flinders Medical which are not served by the train. However, the twitter feed also shows him lamenting cuts to route 150 from Osborne by catching it with his Che...
