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...

[APP] 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...

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...

I thought that cemetery is historical? Pretty sure all cemetaries would be historical. I think each plot is bought for a pre determined number of years (20/50/100) Once this period has elapsed if nobody decides to 'renew' for lack of a better word, the plot can be excavated and reused. Perhaps it i...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

These emergency generators are essentially modified aircraft engines (which shows just much power a modern passenger jet requires!). But it also suggests 25 years is probably about their expected lifespan, so they might be coming out of lease just as they need decommissioning (if they're still in us...

They've got a tram corridor in mind - that pleases me.
In the 2014 report they actually called it a tram corridor. "High capacity public transport" sounds like something the PR team came up with so they could avoid all mention of the dreaded "T" word in the current report.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

A Qantas 747 (flight QFA1364) just flew past my work window on approach to Adelaide AP, (coming from Rockhampton :?: Previous to that it flew an odd looking track from Sydney to Rockhampton this morning). Some kind of special charter flight? Not often you see a Qantas widebody gracing our skies thes...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Monarto failed, because just as it was to get off the ground, population growth, which had been phenomenal in the post war years, suddenly ground to a halt in the 70's, the oil crises hit, fuel skyrocketed, and a far flung satellite city was not deemed attractive under such circumstances. A change ...

As for automation, there are two thoughts on the progress of this. Although some experts assume traffic will decrease with autonomous vehicles, there is another train of thought that demand for high speed freeway style roads will actually increase as the autonomous vehicles will require this to rea...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

You all seem to be forgetting that Sydney airport is not open 24/7. Even Heathrow has a similar curfew to Adelaide. There are no strong legal barriers preventing Heathrow operating 24/7, it's mostly operational choice, despite how busy the airport is. Curfews are a little bit symbolic - it give loc...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Maybe they plan to tunnel under the runways! My estimate is it’s only 1km from the end of Richmond Rd to the other side of the terminal (the old airport area). The 2009 & 2014 Airport master plans show the planned Richmond Rd entrance - it involves a new roundabout built near the end of Richmond Rd...

Re: News & Discussion: Cycling

Great news, is this the final piece of the puzzle between Port Adelaide and the CBD? It's the last major piece of work I think. Charles Sturt council was also rejuvenating a reserve in Croydon that the path runs through, but that should be finished soon, if not already. It's a brilliant example of ...
