This sounds blizzare, but I'm actually looking forward to this intersection being fixed.
Not bizarre at all. I'm looking forward to it too. All signalised dog-leg intersections on major thoroughfares should be removed.

The Peter Van building is pretty much gone. Shitadelaide’s posted a video to their Instagram of the last wall being torn down.

[U/C] Re: Her Majesty’s Theatre Expansion

Prior to the renovation, the theatre was very run down but was also in a largely original state. As much of the theatre was demolished, it is now essentially a modern building, with a heritage facade. Fast forward 50-100 years from now when what is currently a newly renovated building becomes run d...

[PRO] Re: 10 Anzac Highway | Kaufland Supermarket

It's a shame that Renewal SA didn't snap up the site. If it had been turned into a Bowden-style development keeping part of the saw-tooth factory It would've been a nice feature to keep some of the brick facade along Maple Avenue as part of the new construction or even part of the old saw-tooth fact...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

It looks better than before, but there's no pattern to the numbers. If they're doing a re-numbering, why not give the routes a pattern? For example, east-west buses are even numbered, north-south are odd numbered. Not a bad idea. Would make wayfinding much easier if you're trying to navigate the ne...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

G20 back to 218 G21 back to 212 G22 back to 219 These are the buses I use to get into and out of the city each day, and it looks like they won't exist anymore if I'm reading that list right. So I'll be up to 3 bus trips to work, 3 bus trips home each day, as I catch the Obahn up to TTP after reachi...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

Rail is great for hauling freight long distances, or for hauling bulk (rocks and seeds) on a regular basis. It is not so good for short distance (up to about 800km) general freight because of the time needed to transload from truck to train and back to truck for final delivery, vs stay on the truck...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

The entire project hinges on what kind of solution is devised between Cross Road and Darlington. An elevated superway or lowered motorway cutting would be too disruptive and prevented by costly acquisitions of significant businesses, so those options can be thrown out. A hybrid tunnel and ground-lev...

Doing the maths on Google maps for trips; Pakenham to Corio 120km about 90min and Aldinga to Nuriootpa 120km about 90min. I was actually shocked that Geelong to Pakenham is only 120km. It's crazy how long Adelaide is 100km from Sellicks Beach to Hewett. Greater Melbourne stretches well over 100km f...

I'm sure the Onkaparinga Valley could do without the bridge.
The river already has two bridges (MSR, Coast to Vines) and the rail viaduct over the wetlands. What’s one more bridge?

Years ago, I remember them changing the signs. I think it might have been when the superway was being constructed, because prior to the NC being complete we had 3 seperate M2's M2 Nexy M2 (Superway) M2 Sexy We still do: northern expressway - superway, t2t, Southern expressway.

[VIS] Re: Interstate Trains at Adelaide Railway Station

They would need to change the departure time of the Overland as Adelaide Railway Station is almost at capacity in peak hour. Or do that when the CBD underground link is in operation. There’s no hope getting The Overland or any regional trains into ARS until the Gawler-Seaford underground link has b...
