Re: News & Developments: Other Suburban Retail

An article a month ago https://www.fiveaa.com.au/david-and-will-2/real-reason-an-iconic-adelaide-target-store-is-closing-has-been-revealed/ . The centre will get a $10M. So it will be a Drakes a Woolies and Dan Murphys. The BWS will close and Woolies transfer the licence to Dan Murphys, they did the...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The Mawson Lakes station carpark land would look good with some 6ish story apartment buildings overlooking a green square (theres some examples at Bowden). But whats going too happen to the carpark? Thats a lot of cars https://www.google.com/maps/@-34.8051667,138.6129698,3a,75y,64.09h,97.86t/data=!3...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Something I think should be done once the Flinders Line opens, create two lines. Flinders Line would be all stops from Adelaide Railway Station and Seaford would be Adelaide Showground (make this the interchange for the Belair line), Woodlands Park and the Seaford line would start here. Flinders Lin...

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

Let's say there's a busway instead of the train lines, let's just look at the Gawler line electrified and passenger numbers. A 4000 class train can hold 540 people, but in reality it's more likely going to have closer to 350. Theres 8 trains an hour in peak direction, a bus would hold about 50 peopl...

Re: News & Developments: Other Suburban Retail

Fulham Gardens Target is not closing. Fulham Gardens is not on the list close or become a Kmart. In SA there's 5 stores closing (or already closed) Clare, Naracoorte, Millicent, Pasadena and Port Lincoln and 4 converting to Kmart Berri, Murray Bridge, Port Augusta and Victor Harbor. Pasadena is the ...

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

How frequent is the Flinders line going to run? I would think every 15min in peak if they want Uni students / medical workers to use it and the people from the 12 x G2X buses an hour. The single section of track is only 2.5km, it starts just north of Mitchell Park Station. Looking at old timetables ...

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

They really should make a bus stop at the station, a one way road (loop) could easily be built. Enter Flinders Drive, left onto the service road, left at the weird roundabout, left after the station and left back onto Main South Road. If the grade is too steep you could make a turn around area next ...

[ONH] Re: Parafield Airport | Developments & News

Parafield Airport already is too valuable to be an airport. There's like 4 or 5 square kilometres of land that can be developed into housing. The land is worth well over a billion dollars.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

The proposed changes to the buses obviously reflect a desire by the state government to get "better value" from their bus contracts. Yes there are winners and losers.......the winners are people who leave near main transport corridors ie railways, tram lines, main roads. Their services have stayed ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

I hope the "G" buses stop at the new Flinders station. I had to walk from the 681 (this bus is being removed) bus stop 26B on University Drive to the main entrance, it was a 650m walk and 8 mins, the train station would be about 500m from the medical centre interchange, the govt seriously cant think...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

It's bizarre, the 300 misses Henley now but they add more of a dog leg in West Beach. It's all just weird, half the night buses are gone. Lot's of routes gone, some routes that should be a Go Zone are only "connectors" - removing multiple routes and replacing them all with a "connector" is crap, a l...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

There's extra width available at the old brickworks, I think a tunnel portal there until James Congdon Drive. A cheaper section from James Congdon to Anzac Highway, to get back some of the tunnel costs. The tunnel would be 3km and the cheaper next section 1.5km. A lot of properties would need to go ...

[REJ] Re: Glenburnie Tce and Gray St., Plympton

The block is probably too small, not sure what number it is but 1 Glenburnie Tce is an odd shape and 1000sqm and number 2 is a rectangle but only 680sqm The street is also narrow and lacks on street parking. It looks too bulky for the site.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Would be pretty easy to turn Grenfell Street into a nice tree lined bus street, you would need to allow cars to travel east though for the Rundle Place carpark. You could remove the parking / bus stop lane from each side, which would make the footpath 3m wider and plant some trees and than there's o...
