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 ...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Obviously the primary reason SAWater is doing this is because they have done the sums and worked out it will save/make them money but I think it's a win environmentally too - Pine tree plantations sequester about 1-2 tonnes of CO2 per acre per year. (& if a fire swept through the area one day, most ...

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

I agree. I think though it needs to extend to St Vincent St, even if they need to demolish some of the Magistrates Court Building. One day they could link a tram connecting from here (St Vincent St) over the Nelson St bridge & down Semaphore Rd to the beach. Rather than demolish the Magistrates Cou...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

onthehouse .com .au will possibly tell you the sale history & rough current market value of the house in question. If the data is accurate & up to date it looks like a lot of properties around Pym St were sold in 2017 & 2018, probably to the govt. There's likely only a couple of holdouts left now.

And before that, when I was a kid, it ended at a stop sign at Regency Road. The post for the stop sign was mounted in a 44-gallon drum of dirt, or maybe concrete, and Regency Road had no kerb along the northern side. You had to use Days Road to get to Grand Junction Road. Christ, what century was t...

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

Any reason considering the advantages over bitumen they don’t build more roads out of concrete then? Anyone know how does the cost compare? This was discussed before. Concrete roads are more expensive but have reduced maintainance costs, especially for roads that see a high amount of truck usage Co...

The 2014 masterplan for Adelaide Airport https://www.adelaideairport.com.au/corporate/community/adelaide-airport-master-plan/ has a range of future growth scenarios modeled that show how far away the realistic need for a second airport is - the existing airport wont reach its passenger or freight mo...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Especially the part where the tram has to change direction. That makes no sense. Plus if the gradient at North Tce/King William is a problem for trams turning, just wait till someone points out the gradient on Frome Rd as you complete this little loop & return to North Tce. Concept art of the traml...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

That is the stupidest proposal I've ever heard of. Running a tram along Victoria Drive is literally a tram to nowhere. Adelaide University and Botanic Gardens are already serviced by the new route to the East End. :wallbash: Especially the part where the tram has to change direction. That makes no ...

Linear park underpass for south road was finally reopened today - some two months late AND they hardly did anything during the extended closure, given 2/3rds of it is still built from the 'rustic' timber which is well past its used-by date, but whatever. On the approach to the underpass, heading ea...
