[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

Another span has gone up, pretty sure it's the one next to the cop shop, but I had a bad angle from South Rd so it could also have been the Sturt Rd crossing

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Inbound trains were 2 cars, and people were being left behind at Mawson Lakes (granted, the bogans crowding around the door and not moving down the train weren't helping). This is a big problem in football season too, and requires an attitude change from passengers that comes about before I shout i...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The State of South Australia is incapable of eking out efficiency gains due to the baked-in inefficiency of the public service and this is one of the reasons that the operations are being outsourced. Or maybe the Government of South Australia is unwilling to eke out efficiency gains due to their ba...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

The Happy Valley Reservoir Solar Farm is proceeding, I drove past today down Black Rd and all of the pine plantations had already been cut down, save for a 40 metre deep curtain along the fence line. Looks like they caved to the pressure of residents diagonally adjacent who liked to think they were ...

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

It's pretty clear to all but the wilfully opbtuse at this point that the Labor plan was the best one, and the only reason we have the current Liberal plan is because of how badly their half measure was shot down, and this option was the only way they could move forward without having to back track a...

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

I think you're overestimating the amount of traffic in the area. In all the times I've driven through I've rarely encountered a single car in the area. This, plus the fact that the Flinders Line will have a low frequency, makes grade separation pointless. I was hoping for something better regarding...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Sounds like the problem with the Myer Centre is a bit of a rock and a hard place - it's so poorly designed that it's never going to be successful and profitable as currently constructed, but it's so big that it's too expensive to demolish and rebuild.

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

The sight of road at one end and pedestrian level crossings at both ends of the new station is a bit disappointing, surely now is the opportunity to grade separate, when the line is closed, the land all around is dry grass, and the construction equipment is on hand. Alawoona Ave is only going to inc...

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

Let’s look at the two plans. Labor clearly shows Peter Van and Caltex still in place. Liberals are just cutting right through this. Is this another moment of stupidly, party politics, we can’t be seen doing what the other side has planned. Instead of doing what is best! This state is so “french wor...

Much more detail in the InDaily article just posted . Relevant tidbits that indicate final design is far from settled: The plan wasn't supposed to be presented for another 3 months, but Anne Moran, Robert Simms, and the North Adelaide society types were able to force this presentation to happen ear...

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

Ideally the riverbank needs a bunch of shorter trees that can link the existing red gums together while not blocking out the view of the riverbank buildings, and still proving all the shade/windbreak/temperature/etc benefits that trees bring
