Re: The Federal Politics Thread

#LiarFromTheShire is trending on twitter, not because of any left attack on him, but because people are angry they aren't getting their tax cuts immediately, which should tell you most of what you need to know about the result in every state bar Queensland

Re: The Federal Politics Thread

So people ultimately decided that any level of racism, environmental destruction, corruption, and abuse of the vulnerable was acceptable so long as they got to keep the tax refund they didn't pay taxes for. Still, that greed will work out for SA now, because the Centre Alliance look almost certain t...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I wouldn't be surprised if both NEXY and SEXY were dropped, and the whole thing was rebadged as the North-South Motorway from start to finish

[U/C] Re: SkyCity Adelaide Casino Expansion | 55m | 12 Levels | Hotel

It was my understanding that, once the new bit was built, they were going to take the opportunity from half of everything moving into the new space to return the interior of the existing building to its original? heritage? format, as part of a general upgrade and update.

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Another famous full price half measure from the state Liberals, the multipurpose court stadium should absolutely be built where the centre courts are now, no need to do anything to the indoor cricket centre because it'd fit just fine - the current Memorial Drive 'stadium' is no longer fit for purpos...

Re: Oaklands Crossing | $174m

Surely though, at a distance of 450m from platform end to platform end, we can agree that Marino and Marino Rocks should be knocked over and dragged together into one new station at the halfway point.

Re: Oaklands Crossing | $174m

Could not agree more. Radical consolidation of stations, in better locations would enable many more of these modern stations and actually attract many new riders, instead of pandering to a handful of people at each little suburban stop now. I will never not wonder why both Emerson and Clarence Park...

[U/C] Re: Westfield Tea Tree Plaza (Extension)

The whole Modbury Hub area is run down and a lost opportunity and now with these clowns closing the TAFE and the Service SA the future is cloudy The TAFE is now occupied by Datacom, with near 1000 on site employees, of which I am newly one, so it's not dead yet. Starting to cause issues with the lo...

Ok where is the signage for ride sharing? I don’t recall seeing that either.
I imagine you have to catch it in the brief 15 minutes before a taxi driver shows up and tears it down, the airport belongs to the Taxi Clan

How long until new Oaklands has a car park of meaningful size? Asking for a friend looking to turn the second leg of my, I mean his two bus trip home from his new job at Modbury from +90 minutes in peak hour, into 20 minutes train + 15-20minutes drive.

[PRO] Re: Aldinga Rail Extension | $800m

A tourist train to the Barossa makes much more sense, if only because they didn't rip up the line, it's all still there (as far as Nuri anyway). After clearing away the overgrowth and doing the maintenance that hasn't been done, It could probably even start operating before they got around to spendi...

Trackless trams and agile on-demand buses, Knoll does know the private car that took him to Christian Brothers College every morning wasn't public transport, right?
