I thought the Adelaide Test Match crowds were a bit sparse as well whilst in attendance, but considering the first 2 days of the Adelaide Test were e...

Re: News & Discussion: Cycling

I am not sure if other people have heard of issues with the new bikeway section in Frome Street but earlier today I witnessed from a distance what could have been a nasty escalation between two men and two male cyclists. Two men in office clothes were using the cycle way as their pedestrian path str...

BOLD multibillion-dollar infrastructure plans including a 24-hour export airport at Monarto should be ditched, South Australia’s Freight Council boss says. https://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/opponents-urge-state-government-to-start-again-on-its-centrepiece-infrastructure-project/new...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

In regards to the freight airport part of the proposal, the people doing the study need to come out and outline even in the broadest terms at this time, exactly what freight types are earmarked to be shipped through a dedicated facility with dedicated freight planes, to get past first base. I am str...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

The India Pacific would probably miss Adelaide as well if there was a rail bypass. The Indian Pacific being the train from Sydney to Perth did not originally come into Adelaide when it was used as genuine passenger train and regular people used it. People from Adelaide travelled on the SAR governme...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

The quality is going to be remembered long after any delays or the cost. Even though the project has been a dogs breakfast, it is best to delay any opening until any known issues are addressed properly to get right. I really hope there is a full post mortem of this project, so if future tram extensi...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

In the UK the Motorway building boom started in the late 1950’s, got into full swing during the 1960’s and lasted about four decades, but only short links here and there have been added since.

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

Having the 5 squares both surrounded by and carved up by high traffic, high noise, wide streets totally writes them off as attractive parks to visit. The Colonel got a few things right with the city plan, but the parks within the city centre he did not. I've seen too many lively city parks in other...
