Re: News & Discussion: Other Metropolitan Developments

The numbers of units in this article is wrong, the empty block is 21 units, but there's not 3 X 45 unit blocks. There's the 21 unit block, the next block is un renovated and has 24 units and the back two blocks which are renovated have 15 and 6 units, this is from looking on Google maps. The article...

Re: News & Discussion : New Restaurants, Bars & Night Clubs

HQ holds 2300 people, thats insane. How many staff have lots their jobs? It would be mind boggling the amount of money it makes on a Friday or Saturday night. There's a lot of turnover of patrons throughout the night in nightclubs, that could be 5000+ people coming and going.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

It's about people thinking they're more entitled to a service because they travel further. What we need is a higher frequency service so people use it, express services will cause longer wait times, especially services that express a lot of stations. A minimum 15 minute service is needed during the ...

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

Good its included, this is Adelaide after all and that connection is not cheap, its important but expensive. Adelaide is known for stupid decisions like the one way expressway lol. Now all we need is to finish the North - South motorway and build a connection to the SE Freeway.

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

Is there going to be a south bound exit from the Port River Expressway onto the Superway, when this is complete? This would be the quickest way for anyone from the LeFevre Peninsula to get to the CBD and beyond including freight , theres a lot of industry up that way and having trucks avoid Grand Ju...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

I would say it's mainly price, but I found tickets on the Overland for $69 (weirdly the concession price is more at $84 lol), the V/Line bus (and train) to Melbourne is $67.20. But most people using the bus service would have a pension card which makes the bus only $33.60 (you can use any states pen...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

What suburb is Fletchers Slip in? Google Maps shows it as being in New Port. The name New Port has a bad stigma from the last development. Are they going to link into Glanville train station at all, the last development failed on that point, right next to Ethelton Station and the station is hidden.

I wonder if the "small format supermarket" will be a Coles Local, seems like the perfect location for one of Coles' new style stores.

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

All that it says is I need to turn onto the left side of the road, not what lane. No turn line, so you can turn into either lane. The NSW image I showed is correct. Go ask a professional. You can turn into any lane if you're turning from a single right turning lane https://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/images/...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

I had some guy abuse me because I turned right into the left lane, he was in the slip lane and had to give way to me. It was a singe right turn lane into a two lanes, I can choose either lane to turn into. From NSW but the rule is the same https://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/images/roads/safety-rules/roadrul...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Still seems like a lot of power. So 1 MWDay = 24MWh, because you need an output of 1MW each hour. So the plant needs a constant 46.25MW (this figure might not be right) of power every hour to run. So a 50MW power plant will produce 1200MWh in a day, but its output is 50MW. I get it now MWh is the ac...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Where are you getting the 405,150MWh per year from? The plant is using 46.25 Mw a day , therefore you get 46.25 / 24 = 1.93MWh. The calculation to get to 405,150 is assuming it's using 46.25MWh, theres 8760 hours in a year so 46.25 x 8760 is 405.150. 1.93MWh = 1930KWh. Adelaide consumes about 1200MW...

Shop 95 at Munno Para seems tiny for Rite Price, shop 96 seems to be empty so maybe they will take up both https://www.munno.com.au/images/stores/ ... _flyer.pdf - it will be ver close to the other Rite Price (cooling) lol

That petrol station isn't very old (maybe 5 years?). Oh well - stupid decision allowing it to be built there.
