Re: Lack of Major planning in Adelaide...

yeh your right, but i just think people are very short sighted in situations like water supply. They just get pissed off and want solutions e.g. putting in bores, but have no idea of the long term effects of the ground water and environment. I know cause ny dad works in ground water. i know the gove...

Now that the crane is coming down, does that mean that the concrete fencing jutting out on to

Re: Lack of Major planning in Adelaide...

[quote="Bulldozer"] Someone said there are plans: underpasses, desalination, hopsitals, etc. but the reality is that they are mostly haphazard, reactionary plans. The desal is a classic - for years desalination was derided until Adelaide is at absolute crisis point with water and the public is screa...

Re: Lack of Major planning in Adelaide...

Yeh i think your right jimmy. If the government preposed their plans there would be alot less people complaining e.g. all tram extensions, general cbd development, heavy transport infrastructure, etc. Then people know exactly what the government is doing and stands for.

Re: Glenelg Tram Line Upgrade

I think Pat.Conlon sums it up best. First it was criticized for being a waste of money and now for being
too popular.

Re: #Completed : Adelaide Airport

Re: Glenelg Tram Line Upgrade

The streets of adelaide are some of the widest in the country and can easily accommodate both cars and ...

Re: Glenelg Tram Line Upgrade

I won't stop whinging until they fill it in or fix the problems. Why would the government waste money (in your opinion) building a 31m tram line then a few weeks later have it pulled up? surely this would be a waste of tax payers money. Even if you hate them it is much cheaper to leave it in and wo...
