Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

I would not at all be ok with going from having electricity 24/7, 365 days a year, to basically having a 1984 style Command Economy where I am told when I am allowed to turn on my Air Conditioner or take a shower. If this is the plan you renewables advocates have for the future, then I must say tha...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

We can't be designing a power grid by telling people when and how they can heat their hot water,- large scale industry certainly will not operate like that, they will just offshore where China and India are building coal fired power stations like there is no tomorrow. That is exactly how it has bee...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Add temporary load to the network if we are approaching over 100% supply of demand.
If a lack of load is a problem that seems very easy to design a fix for.
But there is obviously even better and cheaper ways than that.

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

The cost in tunnels is not only in construction but also in ongoing maintenance. It is the lighting, communication systems including repeaters, sprinkler systems, fans and sensors. And the ongoing costs to test the structures integrity and repair it. The Hysen tunnels are costing an extra $15million...

[U/C] Re: [U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

Been many years since I used Majors road, has traffic increased enough on this spot to even warrant an entry/exit for this road? Surely the existing South Road or Lonsdale are adequate to acces Majors? There is little traffic on the road with nearly nothing built on it. Only the suburbs of Hallett ...

Yes.
Surely a roof, gym and spa is not worth $50 million.
Also why must it be year round and with a roof.
Where is the options of roof less?

There is nothing local to access between T2T and Brickworks, so why do you need a local road?

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

Nothing needs to happen at the river other than knock over a few buildings and block a side street off. Once the buildings are gone the corner can be eased via the new land.
I imagine the motorway will be pushed to Jervois Ave.
I'm pretty sure there is enough room for 3+3 on the existing bridge.

Re: SA Economy

China pays about $10-15 an hour (depending on exchange rate) for a basic manufacturing type job. And that increases by more than 10% year on year. Specialised industry, such as electronics, are likely much higher paid. It is clearly lower than Australia for now but it isn't $2 a day. And the gap is ...

Re: Magill/Portrush Road Intersection Upgrade | $98m

A tunnel from north of Magill Road intersection to south of Greenhill Road intersection would work better But that is a massively expensive tunnel that is not at all close to the budget for this project. This gets a few driveways off a major road that should have never had driveways on it to begin ...
