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

About 4 years ago DEW (DEWNR at the time) consolidated 7 sites into 81-95 Waymouth St.

Very good for productivity but the floorplates are large enough for about 120 people per floor, which can get very noisy.

Re: #Projects: Mount Barker

I don't expect that plaza to be particularly large after all those buildings go in. The available land is not huge.

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

You can't make a freight railway more efficient by reducing the horizontal distance if it still goes over the highest point. If it's 1:45 or 1:48 now from near Keswick to Mount Lofty, the fix has to be to not go near Mount Lofty Station, not to find a more direct route. The route does not have to b...

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

Rail is great for hauling freight long distances, or for hauling bulk (rocks and seeds) on a regular basis. It is not so good for short distance (up to about 800km) general freight because of the time needed to transload from truck to train and back to truck for final delivery, vs stay on the truck ...

Ernst & Young from Wednesday will have all it's 6,000 staff in Australia working from home. But SCOMO still has his head up his own ass.
Don't expect it to come out of there any time soon

I would love to see no traffic lights around the ANZAC Highway and Donald Bradman Drive. Imagine what could be possible here ? Get ANZAC Highway moving !!!
There are no traffic lights at this intersection, as Anzac Highway and sir Donald Bradman Drive do not meet each other.

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

I hate to say this but I think Bank Street and Leigh Street should be fully reopened to cars, we should be focusing the money on our squares including Victoria Square. I think the East End strip should be extended into Rundle Mall, activate it at night time with restaurants, cafes, etc I think Gawl...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

I'd like to see a new ring route, new road between Phillips Street and War Memorial Drive and extend Ward Street to the new road. Widen the War Memorial Drive between King William Road and Hackney Road. What purpose does that serve? If it's cross city traffic then we absolutely don't want to be sen...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

The central problem is that the rail track network was privatised. Its a classic problem of externalities. Grain lines don't generate enough profit to directly pay for their upkeep. But functioning grain lines have overall positive benefit for the state's economy and society. It is the same story f...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

While your idea has merit, I think what SBD is trying to get across is that the rubbish needs sorting closer to home, or you get what SKM was doing - compacting co-mingled recyclables and shipping it somewhere else. At the receival point, the co-mingled recyclables were not in a fit state to be sepa...

Re: SA Economy

Tasmania isn't an economic powerhouse but still they have higher population growth. It's pathetic. What is the demographic of people moving to Tasmania? Clean air and a slower pace attracts retirees. Retirees travel and spend to start with, but that reduces the further they are into retirement. The...

Don't forget that Salisbury Highway should be alot quieter once the Northern Connector is up and running so there shouldn't be any major problems merging/changing lanes. What Salisbury Highway traffic will move on to the Northern Connector? They are divergent routes. Are you talking about the short...

[PRO] Re: 134-136 Wright Street | ~52m | 16 Levels | Motel

The idea of a motel was originally a motoring hotel - a hotel for motorists travelling between endpoints of their journey. As such they were typically 1- or 2-storey buildings with outdoor parking, and catered typically for short stays. The definition has obviously changed over time.

Now that Gawler is expanding its a pity we don't have a third track which will allow trains to be express between Gawler and Adelaide. Is an express train between end points a good idea? Will the trains be full? Wouldn't it make more sense to run express from the station where the train fills up (w...
