Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Islington can have bus stops / turn around / small interchange on the western side, there's room there. Unless you rebuild Islington and have it accessed from the bridge, lift and stairs going down to a new centre platform. Also why would you close the Outer Harbor train just to build a line down Po...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Smaller loops are good but wont have the patronage to warrant a bus every 10mins. The giant loop I mentioned Mawson to Smithfield is probably too big, another option would be a Smithfield to Salisbury Loop and a Salisbury -Salisbury East - Mawson - Salisbury West - Salisbury loop. Whatever way it go...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Having certain routes terminate at train stations could work, especially on the Gawler and Seaford lines. Why do we need buses like the 228 heading all the way into the CBD. What you need to do is increase the frequency of the trains at the connecting stations - 10 min frequency would be good. I dou...

Re: Adelaide Plains | Development and News

Looks similar to the Two Wells development. Once the Northern Connector and South Road is finished it would be a pretty quick trip into the city and western / southern suburbs.

Since Big W is set to close 30 stores in the next 3 years do you think Big W will reopen when after the redevelopment?

[VIS] Re: Central Market

The promenade would end at about the middle of where the current Coles is, it looks to be about 25m wide The promenade can’t possibly be 25m wide. That would make it as wide as Rundle Mall. I think you are being fooled by the perspective view. It’s probably between 12-15m wide. Look at the third pi...

[VIS] Re: Central Market

Look clearly at the third picture, you can see 32 Grote street across the road, it's opposite Coles, the white building it's 12m wide, this might be useful information when trying to look at the scale . Looking at Google maps that would mean the atrium / promenade would start at about the first wind...

Coles is about 25m to the west of the atrium / promenade, the promenade lines up with the white building next to La Boheme on Google maps - which will line Coles front entry with the market - https://www.google.com/maps/@-34.928691,138.597819,3a,75y,175.7h,88.72t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1szzoVd6znROUX6T-v...

The images show a Coles supermarket under the actual markets a big open atrium that will link the old markets to the new area which is where the current Coles is which will have offices above it - the recently refurbed facade will obviously remain and the old markets behind it will be rebuilt with a...

[PRO] Re: 10 Anzac Highway | Kaufland Supermarket

The trading laws are non-exempt shops can open midnight to 9pm on Weekdays, midnight to 5pm on Saturday and 11am to 5pm on Sundays. Kaufland could build a store at the airport and be allowed to trade 24/7 since it's on federal land, this is how Harbortown trades on public holidays it's not in one of...

[PRO] Re: Goodwood/Springbank/Daws Road Intersection

There's no way a realigned dog-leg intersection can be quicker than a standard cross intersection. The east-west traffic via the dog leg will always take longer to clear than a standard intersection, therefore traffic going north-south will be forced to wait longer. If the lights are continuous a ca...

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

The service pattern should be pretty simple if each line runs every 30 mins inter-peak then Port Dock and Grange are all stations and Outer Harbor is express Bowden to Woodvile. The Gawler line timetable is a mess, when electrified it should run every 10 mins in inter peak. All stops every 20 min an...

The Tavern was next to the stadium, why would they demolish it. They didn't demolish the Sports Medicine Clinic, that was on the other side of the oval.
