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

Reality is however wether it be missiles or jumpers, there is still hundreds of metres of easily accessible low concrete barriers right next to what look like footpaths (whilst not actually meant for foot traffic). I think they are splash barriers to prevent car crash debris from landing in the mot...

By GPS I did mean Google Maps or if you must, TomTom based services like Apple Maps.

If you use anything other than Google Maps you have junk traffic data ;)

Maybe Bolivar which now very much looks like kings road on a map after the semi recent realignment.

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

Traffic reports already talk about "queuing at the northern end of the North-South Motorway". Traffic reports are adverts that try to get your attention by pretending to include important information. They are not concerned with giving accurate or easy to understand info. "Queuing at the northern e...

Why hasn't anyone complained about the addition of the Roof Climb business to Adelaide Oval? They had to make changes to the roof's of the stands for it you know. The roof climb is a unique attraction. It is worthy of putting on adverts for the state. The restaurant is a unique offer, worthy of pos...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Yes Pelican Point was offline and not selling gas.....at all.......Engie owns Pelican Point meaning it made 0 dollars that week, allowing all the money to go to its competitor AGL (who own Torrens Island). How is that maximizing profits? Anyway this will be the subject of the upcoming court case. E...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Will they have every piece of power production rolling during heatwaves? Yes! I just want to highlight the answer to this is NO!!!!!!!! Private companies doing supply vs demand are not driven by a need to maximize units sold, they are driven by a need to maximize profits. Pelican Point could have b...

Do the gas companies want to make money? Yes! Will they have every piece of power production rolling during heatwaves? Yes!

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

There is plenty more electrical infrastructure to be built in South Australia (solar farms, wind farms and storage) These gas generators will not be stopping that..... I disagree. These generators are now in the supply vs demand pool. They will lead to 273mw of generation to not be built by someone...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

You either believe the emergency generators were never required and should have never been built - aka SA Labor were planning to waste 600mil of tax payers money on a bad idea. 400mil of this loss will now not be spent. Or you believe the emergency generators were a reasonable idea and SA Liberal ha...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

The point nearly everyone is making is that a long term lease is regarded as privatised, that is common use of language. This is selling the usable life of the asset. With these now to be in general operation means their purpose of having the ability to inject another 273mw in to the system will be ...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

ETSA, SA Water, Bank SA were all "privatised".......assets and operational control were all transferred to third parties with no further government control. Etsa and SA water assets are still owned by the sa government and exclusive control of operation is leased out. Etsa, SA water and buses have ...
