[COM] Re: [U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

I looked into this, unless DPTI is a member of Google’s Base Map Partner Program, not a lot will happen until Google’s algorithms draw the new route. For example with t2t it took a few weeks to be properly formed in maps. People like us can submit an edit I believe. I was impressed that my TomTom G...

Re: News & Discussion: Cycling

Lets not forget that the so called "strong trader backlash" against the Pirie St bike path in 2016 was basically one cafe owner who was either mates with or duped by Alex Antic into commenting in the media.

[PRO] Re: Birkenhead Bridge Upgrade Project

The shared pathway on the bridge itself is perfectly fine. It's reasonably new, fairly wide & much improved compared to the old setup (ie no path at all). What needs significant improvement are the approaches to the bridge along Nelson St. There are good shared pathways just a couple of hundred met...

Easter's in April. Id like to think at least the main carriageway would be open then.
How long before traffic was the T2T open day?

The Superway Open Day was well before it even looked close, if I remember.
T2T open day was Sep 23 2018 & it was opened to traffic the weekend after.

I assume this crane is for the site some large steel trusses & tanks are being lifted into the RAH - looks like water tanks or boilers maybe? that blue-green instant grass spray was sprayed all over the SAHMRI 2 site last Friday, so I'm guessing that might mean not much will happen for a while http...

[PRO] Re: Goodwood/Springbank/Daws Road Intersection

There's no reason Peter Van couldn't wrangle a deal with the government to relocate to a new building on the corner next to the high school where the existing road will be removed. Might work out cheaper for the government. Would be a shame to lose the green space though. How about the area where t...

Re: News & Discussion: Low/Mid-Rise CBD Development

Adelaide Uni has added extra floors to all three of its medical school buildings. In the 1950's (I think) the original med school building (now Helen Mayo South building) on Frome Rd was extended and a 6th floor added (it's hard to tell, but you can see a subtle difference in the masonry compared to...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

What criteria was that list founded on? Not sure how Adelaide is so low by comparison to Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. Considering Perth and Sydney have separate buildings for their domestic and international terminals, meanwhile Melbourne has one of the most dated and maze-like terminal in Australi...

[SWP] Re: SAHMRI Stage 2

It's probably only me, but I always liked the brutalist bunker type design of the control centre, with its angled glass windows. as a kid I always liked seeing it - it was about the most futuristic looking building I knew of in Adelaide. The new building looks fantastic, but I will miss the control...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

A 26 tonne load limit to be imposed on the King William Rd bridge, with significant repairs needed within the next decade. I guess this makes a tramline into North Adelaide contingent on the bridge being repaired first. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-09-04/king-william-road-adelaide-bridge-might-...

[U/C] Re: Brickworks Redevelopment | $70m

Hang on didn’t the revamp only just happen? Why so much change already? Probably because it's not doing great. The Woolworths and Dan Murphy's are generally busy, and a few of the eateries, but the rest of the centre struggles. There's still a couple of tenancies that have never been filled. I real...
