Re: SA Economy

Why do we need to be importing people to fill skills shortages, when we have high unemployment in this country? Why isn't more being done to train people in THIS country? ...JOBS JOBS JOBS. While I totally agree with you about spending money on training people, there is another reality - a lot of A...

[APP] Re: 73-85 Pirie Street | 89m | 22 Levels | Office

Yes, it's incomplete, but is moving forward. The point is, it disproves the argument that it's not worth moving from the norm. Not only have they gone for something much taller, but it is a huge leap from the standard glass box.

Currently in terms of appartments and office space, things are pretty bland.

They don’t have too much to compare with, so why spend $$$$ trying to stand out?

Re: Adelaide Plains | Development and News

I wonder how big the blocks would be to entice people out there? It says wide, tree-lined streets, I hope the blocks are a decent size (around 1000 sq m) too. I honestly don't see any need for medium density in some of our country towns, and it sounds like this is more of an altruistic development t...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

IIRC, The Superway was built with Commonwealth money after a commonwealth-funded study was done into what would be most beneficial for the freight task at the time. The State Govt may have had to throw some money at it too, I don't recall, but the Commonwealth money was definitely for that particula...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

There is another issue - the land is Crown Land that was dedicated to SAWater to care for and maintain the water infrastructure. At a profit to themselves, of course. Now it can be argued that being self-sufficient power-wise is in line with that, but only if they use the power themselves. If they s...

As an aside, is there a plan to widen/upgrade the footpaths in Bentham St?
There's a plan to turn Bentham St into shared space as part of the Railway Station to Central Market route. The work has already started. See separate thread.

I'm not sure if the trams were diverted to the new Henley Beach Road alignment or not.
According to a tramways map from the late 1950s, it was.

Re: News & Developments: Henley Beach & Grange

Trams used to come to Henley Beach, along Henley Beach Road until the big S bend. From there they went on to a viaduct across the Reedbeds (Weetunga) swamp, basically along the alignment of what is now HMAS Australia Road, to reach Henley Beach. When the Breakout Creek was dug in 1939, the Reedbeds ...

Re: News & Developments: Henley Beach & Grange

Actually looking at Google Streeview the gradient of a Military Road entrance would probably be too great. No, it isn't. Come to Aldgate or Bridgewater and look at how steep the ramps are to the supermarket car parks. But, while you're looking at Streetview, look across the road to the northeast co...

I was under the impression that the Britannia Roundabout issue was finished as is? Every time I've been through there lately the traffic has flowed and it's been easy to get through there.
