[VIS] Re: Interstate Trains at Adelaide Railway Station

can't see Adelaide Metro agreeing to have the Overland or any other regional train come into ARS, it's their precious territory, I think the State Government would have to construct the Metro City Loop. At present the currrent Government are fixated with roads although the Hove level Crossing is in ...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

trams through the CBD aren't going to make money, WHY, because they are in the free travel zone, just look at the city students that travel from City West, Victoria Square, City South and South Terrace, too bad for a commuter in peak hour to travel beyond South Terrace and the number of fare evaders...

Re: Should Adelaide bid for a theme park...'a la' Disneyland etc.

don't see the need for a theme park, the Showgrounds could open more frequently for side shows but we need innovative centres. Our museum is a Natural Museum which you can only visit so many times, we need a museum such Sydney Powerhouse, Melbourne / Victoria Museum, Spotswood Science Museum. We hav...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

There were plans to build a new station across from the Hills site due to the proposed extension of Castle Plaza, which folded when the land was found to be fairly toxic and no one prepared to foot the bill. It would make more sense to close Woodlands Park and Edwardstown and build a new station wit...

Re: Mount Gambier | Developments & News

sad to see Masters go, had a far better and interesting range than Bunnings, would have liked the partnership taken away from Woolworths. Visited a hardware chain in Germany which had a range and price that would have competed more than well against Bunnings

Re: Mount Gambier | Developments & News

Mt Gambier's economy as well as parts of the Limestone Coast suffer as a result of no passenger rail. The choice is car, bus, plane. The car is convenient, the bus is not popular choice and slow, plane is expensive. When Sharpe Airlines had their Adelaide service it was cheaper to fly to Portland th...
