Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

I think it's just some people don't know how to drive. The lanes in the underpass are 2.7m wide, the average SUV and 4WD is about 2m wide, our standard road lanes are a very generous 3.5m. In the suburbs there's less than 2.7m on some streets when there are cars parked both sides. Getting though tig...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

O-Bahn buses have side door loading. How long have they been doing that for? Since Monday 26th March 2018: https://adelaidemetro.com.au/Announcements/News/All-day-every-day-O-Bahn-all-door-boarding Seen a few people from out of town tapping their metrocard to touch-off when exiting, might need a si...

Oh wow, something with a curve, even if it's just one corner it will be a welcome change to the boxy Adelaide skyline. Height is also decent, should block out Westpac a bit. :applause: But.. this has me a little worried it may never get up. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-07-23/construction-set-for-...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

For a slight change of pace — good that the updated announcements on the tram tell you which side the platform will be at each stop, but the "in the direction of travel" at the end of every announcement is like nails on a chalkboard. What idiot wouldn't understand that 'left' and 'right' is relativ...

I would assume that the whole continuation will end up being called the North-South Motorway... they even have started putting signs up that say it -- https://www.google.com/maps/@-34.8750976,138.5696467,3a,21.6y,74.98h,90.83t/data=!3m9!1e1!3m7!1s9svHKpxSJLdVdKFJA0aR2Q!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!9m2!1b1!2i...

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

Not sure if anyone noticed in the video fly through also, the ITS signs say 80km/h. 90km/h on the superway, down to 80km/h? Yes, Torrens to Torrens and this new section will be 80km/h. What's the reasoning behind this? Surely it can't be safety...90km/h on a bridge...but 80km/h on a surface road an...

6-8 floors is fine for Aldinga apparently, but 12 floors is 'too tall' for the middle of the city? :sly:

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

The slow work is annoying for the finishing touches after how quickly tracks went in, but i'm sure it wont be long and trams will be running. At least it isn't the complete fiasco Sydney has been putting up with since 2014, still nowhere near finished, and it will be over-crowded from opening day. :...

..This is a real shame I say.
Meanwhile the city's new tallest is getting built a block away. How is it out of scale when it is so close to a building more than twice its height?

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Pisoni might, and it will probs be a very low key thing.

I'm thinking this will be the last tram extension for a while, this new state govt has much more important projects to work on like an expansion to the National Wine Centre, and duplication of the Hindmarsh Island Bridge. :wink:
