[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

The fact that the core is split into two sections, makes me wonder if there'll be a new slip form added for the smaller section. I believe the top two offset floors have lift access... I'll need to go back and find the plans on the DA. Wouldn't that make it three sections? They already shrank the c...

[APP] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

Glossing over the serious issues that Perth Stadium has, like the too hard playing surface, and the need for view and atmosphere obstructing crowd control fences around the entire fence line because the grandstands are elevated above the playing field. At least it doesn't kill its own grass as well,...

We'll see what happens when the fig trees die and have to be removed. Or when the Commonwealth Games are staged and there's a huge downpour and people start sliding down the hill.
Because it has never rained on the hill before

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

I catch the various G20/21/22 buses a lot these days, and boy are there some ancient buses still in service on those lines. Oldest is some single floor level model that must be from the early 80s, is it any wonder people don't want to ride them (along with the route and time issues). Certainly overd...

Great pictures Norman. Who is responsible for watering the lawn?
I only hope it still looks this good this time next year.
Surely there's an automated sprinkler system setup for it? If not, wow..
Pretty sure they put those purple pipe irrigation grids under every bit of green on the upgrade

Hard to take a good photo on the move, but you get the big 3 in a line from the mouth of the parklands tunnel

The current curve of Taylors Bridge (the South Road bridge over the Torrens) probably isn't friendly to a speed of 80 km/h either.
Disinterring a third of Hindmarsh Cemetery to accommodate a shallower curve at the current level is not likely to be a popular solution

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

The whole area needs to be looked at as one precinct not as individual projects. From Montefiore Road to Pennington Tce to Frome Road/War Memorial Drive on the eastern side and to the southern side of the Torrens- elder park & the boat house and restaraunt, and Torrens Parade Ground. On the one sid...

Why would you need to get rid of them... Things just need to be moved around What do you want this land to be used for? Be specific. Cheers Uhh..

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Plenty of room to build a multipurpose centre court arena over the current grandstand, two show courts plus visitor amenities over Next Gen, and then leave the rest as they've been developing it, with no need to build over pinky flat. Though, I can see the advantages in closing Memorial Drive to tra...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Why would we split up the potential CBD sports precinct by moving the Tennis out to what is effectively the middle of nowhere as far as public transport and hospitality/retail is concerned instead of moving the Netball to Memorial Drive?
