Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

Bring back the grand central hotel. http://www.adelaideheritage.net.au/all-site-profiles/grand-central-hotel/ Maybe it’s time to consider a long term plan to make Rundle Street East a Mall, it could be done in two stages over a period of years, the first stage from Frome Street to East Terrace and ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

This latest thinking from ACC is plain wrong. Trying to bring up an old idea that is backwards. As part of the City Access project for the O’Bahn, both East Terrace and Rundle Road were redeveloped in parts which allowed for an additional 50+ on street car parks in the area for a trade off in remov...

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...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

There will be another debate if the Adelaide Crows take over the Aquatic Centre, rebuild & expand it to make it their HQ, Club and training grounds. Personally as a rate payer of ACC I would be all for it, increased activity for North Adelaide, better use of the area than today and probably be bette...

FYI The Perth Test Match total crowd numbers have come in with a total of approx 80,000, compared to the recent Adelaide Test Match of approx 112,000. 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...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

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...
