Re: SA Economy

But there are a lot of boarded up shops in the suburbs. It's noticeable at Hallett Cove, and worse at Noarlunga where half the downstairs level of Colonnades is boarded up. And even in the City, the Gallerie's been closed for years and the Myer Centre can't fill its upper levels. There are too many...

Re: Harris Scarfe has gone broke

News should be forced to make it more clear what is a paid for advert and what is actually an organic story. But their entire business model since forever is based on selling adverts not news to customers. Facebook is even worse. All the posts about people visiting, sharing or liking companies are m...

Bedford Industries would not have been giving away their land.
They likely wanted a bunch of money for their land and to have a new facility built. It may have been far more costly to move them.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Can't Myers building just fill in the void between basement and ground and move the food court to ground? Move maybe lincraft and a gym to basement.
Move the pub to mall side on 1st or 2nd is easy.
Myers could take space in 2nd and close the upper levels.
And have office and apartments above that?

Re: Glenelg Ferry & Cruise ship terminal

In the past there was not the discrimination act. You would need to run some form of on-demand shuttle now. Which means the pier would need to be flat enough to drive a small buggy on. Eg the current pier surface would not be suitable. There also was not the building fire safety requirements. If the...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

The problem I have with a huge bridge or tunnel is they just keep costing money forever. They are not permanent structures. Constant checks for cracking and movement. What is the expected life of the superway? I imagine it will degrade over time to the point that it probably needs to be entirely reb...

Re: Glenelg Ferry & Cruise ship terminal

Is there a huge demand to walk or drive 200m up a pier to some business?

All I see is lots of money to build and run a facility with poor access.

Who's budget would include the money to buy every property that may or may not be part of a future road project? Also factor in the lost employment, GST, income tax, land tax, council rates, water and sewage etc etc for whatever time period until this unknown project is actually to occur. What if th...

Re: SA Economy

I thought the GST was split based on things like the states demographic.
SA gets more GST because it houses a higher percentage of retired Australians.
The more elderly the more GST to cover their costs.
