Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Beyond fare hikes, privatisation and park-and-rides, it appears the Liberals have no plans for public transport infrastructure in this term with the possible exception of an O-Bahn 'extension' to Golden Grove (Gawler electrification is an ongoing project and doesn't count). Also no sign of them com...

Knoll said the Government would ensure that “the existing frontline workforce will be provided with the greatest level of opportunity for ongoing work”.
The existing work force will get first go at having to apply for their old jobs on casual contracts at half the rate, magnanimous gesture.

[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

The SACA board are really on board, spruiking the development and its ‘stunning’ (their words) plans to its members. Stunning as the plans may be the clunky design shown in the renders is just so disappointing looking more like a mediocre block of flats tacked on as an afterthought than an architec...

Haven't been to Perth stadium, but I have been to Marvel, and it's trash compared to AO. I've sat in every stand at AO since the rebuild for either football, soccer, or cricket, and never had an issue seeing all of the playing area from my seat, and I'm talking after they rejigged the cricket member...

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

The Woodville-Grange branch line will be the next likely target as not viable from some inside the Liberal party. There will try on an argument that buses do the job and the $$$ required to keep this branch line open are too high. I wonder how many Liberal donors and party executives are members of...

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

Progressing through these has identified potential opportunities to further improve public transport services and connectivity for Port Adelaide and more broadly, the north western suburbs. And you can bet your bottom dollar that these 'improvements' will involve a shitty bus service. A shitty bus ...

Possibly they think that prams have wheels, so should use the cycle lane?
It's more that they have prams, so think that they have right of way over all other people at all other times under all other circumstances, and boy will they tell you about it if you think otherwise.

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

It really feels like this is getting no further along. It's just announcements and re-annoucements of funding and planning. I guess I'm naïve about DPTI's processes, but with all the studies so far, I'm surprised we need yet another to decide an option. Do they need to update assumptions, go furthe...
