Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Bit of a tangent, but does anyone know the chances of rail heading north east in either the medium term or long term future? I’m guessing the o-Bahn corridor would make the job somewhat easier, and from what I understand the obhan is approaching the end of its estimated useful life. The service is r...

But these petrol station supply non renewable energy which isn't sustainable over the long term. In 15 - 20 years time electric cars will have...

This, and the SA Water building on the opposite side of the square are two of the greatest waste of prime CBD real estate in the last decade. Unlike Melbourne where the prime sites were quarantined from developement until a proposal of adequate landmark design and proportion were proposed. Na, ther...

[U/C] Adelaide Oval Hotel

“however its real beauty died a long time ago when the original stands were taken down. This was even before the Bradman Stand was built on the Torrens end. Do you remember the grassed hill next to it? If you can't then you don't know what Adelaide Oval was” If you don’t remember the opening back in...
