Pretty believable timelines until the end of 2020. Then it gets weird.

I think it's being dragged out not because of other sections, but because of the State Election in 2022.
Yep! It will be complete just in time to remind everyone of what they've done!

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

As far as I know the tunnel is not suitable for car traffic. You only have one lane each way. There should be double carriageways and an emergency lane each side. The emergency lane is very important. Also I'm not sure if there are any exits should there be an accident, a pile up or worse still a h...

Rev having a quiet discussion without insulting anybody (from page 30): So how exactly do you think a discussion and debate occurs? I don't know how it happens over in the UK, but for the rest of the planet it generally involves people with different opinions and views sharing them and making their ...

But I don't think height is necessarily the key. I think better design of buildings is far more important, and it being a proper entertainment precinct, especially in that location.
Agreeing with rev's opinion here.

How about my fans on here actually make a coherent and strong counter argument for a change, and maybe you'll convince me that you're opinion is correct and mine is wrong? Opinions are not right or wrong. They're just opinions. You can get facts right or wrong, but when you are talking about what s...

Rev, I respect your right to disagree with me.
It's you who doesn't respect anyone's right to disagree with you. Sometimes I put up arguments, sometimes I just can't be bothered. I still don't have to agree with you.

As Ho Really said recently, it's okay to disagree.

Get over it.

Rev is well known on these boards for voicing opinions, insulting anyone who disagrees, and then claiming to be a victim.
It's his formula. Don't even try to deal with it.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Yes long-term vision. That's how all projects should be looked at. Of course the tunnel and any improvement or expansion of the O-Bahn in time will pay for itself, commuters and price hikes permitting. Thanks Long-term vision is a good thing, but that does not mean it needs to be acted on from the ...

but at least the stadium will be completed and give better viewing conditions for those that choose the northern end. As you said, these people choose to view from the Northern end. Why? Most likely because they like the atmosphere there, out in the open under the trees, on the grass. I don't think...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I don't use the O-Bahn and when I did the tunnel wasn't completed. My wife does though. Regularly. Perhaps not every day as you as she also catches other buses to and from work. She's OK with the outcome, however she doesn't believe the time saved equates to the money spent. We all have our opinion...

And more should be done to encourage businesses to take on mature age apprentices, because there's many people out there who are under employed in various industries, and would jump at the chance to change careers/industries if it meant continuous full time and secure work.

Re: SA Economy

Young people complaining that the ad is ageist, while older people are having a laugh. Political correctness gone stupid as usual.

If you don't like the ad, fair enough, but most people are bagging it on behalf of a section of the population they know nothing about.

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

A zig zag is really not a practical way to get a 1.6km long freight train down a slope though, and we already have a big horse-shoe - it goes via Blackwood.
However, a Spiral would work (I think) and would also be really really cool.
