[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

To park land or to not park land is the question.

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

EVERYTHING on the northern side of North Terrace is in the Park Lands. I have a copy of Light's original plan and back then he didn't factor in the Railways, Museum, Library, University, Art Gallery etc. He drew a spot for Government House, a hospital in the east park lands, army barracks, storage ...

Re: Whyalla | Developments & News

Re: Whyalla | Developments & News

In Western Australia a few years ago (when the mining boom was in full swing), new iron ore deposits were being discovered in what they refer to as the Mid-West. Alanah McTiernen, their Transport Minister, made it clear that ore could not be moved to port using the road network, in effect forcing th...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Yes, but they are known differently for how committed they are to Public Works projects (infrastructure, public transport, hospitals, schools ...). While they have both committed to finishing the North-South Expressway, I believe one party would accomplish it quicker than the other. Just my opinion.
