Re: News & Discussion: Laneway Revitalisation Projects

Adelaide City Council isn't alone with the asphalt footpath thing..

And, yes, it infuriates me when people spell it O'Bahn. No, it's not Irish, thank you.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Central Markets

They should have just allowed U-turns at the Pitt St intersection and saved a few $$, just put a sign in the median that says carpark access via U-turn with an arrow to illustrate for the simpletons.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

My guess is it's probably just Zara relocating from Burnside to the CBD.

[COM] Re: PRO: Oaklands Rail Overpass

It is not improving public transport one iota , train passengers are perfectly happy with or without it, it only improves the lives of motorists. No, no, no.........train passengers will benefit from grade separation, in the future it will enable frequency of services to improve, one train every te...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport

Like with most public transport innovations in this city i'm looking forward to it not being put in anywhere else, and never functioning properly. :lol:

I dont see why the Federal Govt need a business case for a project that has already commenced construction, the poles are in the ground already FFS :roll:

Re: Infill Developments | Metropolitan Adelaide

The 4-storey building next to Paradise Interchange got rejected by the DAC, because it was "too large", and not in line with Campbelltown Council’s development plan. :roll: Rejects 4-story apartments for being "too large", but will likely say yes to a big ugly 5-story carpark just like the one at T...

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

I shouldn't be negative, but I'm praying that this structure won't result in a permanent snails pace speed restriction like what the trams have on a bridge over South Rd that was just built a few years ago I do recall trams did run at a snails pace on the South Rd bridge before the recent issues, a...

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

No work done to the station other than new retaining walls for garden beds on the southern side - although heard from DTPI shortly before the line closed that they were planning to replace the shelters and install new benches whilst the line was closed. Hopefully that'll come in the near future as ...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport

One of my biggest public transport peeves at the moment isn't so much the transport but the infrastructure: specifically, the Park Tce level crossing in Salisbury. It's a nightmare at the best of times - not helped by a chaotic and extremely uncoordinated local road network, along with the freight ...

Re: News & Discussion: Chinatown

I've been to a lot of Chinatowns around AU and Adelaide's is pretty much exactly the same as the rest of them. I've never noticed anything wrong with the paving/lighting on Moonta St, but Field St just across Gouger St has almost no footpath, it literally is a dirty concrete jungle with no seating.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I agree with Shuz, ticks a lot of boxes and lays the foundations of an inner-suburban light-rail network, from this there could be extensions to any of the following: North Adel/Prospect, Melb St/Walkerville/Collinswood, Norwood/Magill/Marden. The only problem I can see with this is the Festival Cen...

Re: News & Discussion: Buses

Adelaide doesnt do 'cool' or 'new' very well with public transport signage. The yellow poles will never be changed, the transport department think they're so great that they're at all train and tram stops as well. :lol:
