I thought an arborist has said these trees are healthy and will live to at least 2039.

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Are we suggesting the MATS plan is a poster child of how to run a city? This has all come up because of the big picture large interchange designed in the MATS plan; it was never built. Someone got paid big money to draw up a dream that was never built. Is that the goal? Spend big dollars for big pla...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

I thought the majority of approvals are obtained for the speculated value rather than because they ever planned to build something.

I doubt many of these approved projects will ever be built. Hence I would prefer to hear about projects that are actually progressing towards construction.

Are approvals all that important?

Tell me when something is under construction. [emoji16]

Re: Commonwealth Games in Adelaide

Why do you need all runners in a 100m race in the one venue?
100m in Adelaide is the same as 100m in China?
Of course the answer is the conditions are not equal so the competition would be unfair.

To be fair all players would need the same network conditions. Also you need to be able to control the machine to prove it isn't running unapprove or modified software or hardware
You need to be all in the same room.

Re: Connect the Gawler and Outer Harbor rail lines

Our ticketing system does not collect sufficient data to assess the actual demand. There is no way to assess the potential demand. Why use the ticketing system? You can track users via their Bluetooth or wifi devices. Basically everyone has a phone in their pocket with Bluetooth or wifi on. The gov...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

There is other investments to make other than property. The tax makes those holding more land than they need to live pay society for the land withheld from the society that gives the land its value. It also prevents inflating house prices due to lack of land supply. If property is such a poor invest...

Aren't the overhead signs how you get a bearing of where you are? Besides in this day and age most modern cars have inbuilt GPS or aftermarket units, and everyone has a mobile with google/apple maps.

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

You do not want 50km of road to look the same.
It would be boring and makes it difficult to get a bearing of where you are.

Every section should feel unique.
It will keep drivers more alert and make for less people missing their turn off.
