Re: Article: City Tram Track To Grow

Re: Mitsubishi to Shut Adelaide Plant

Strange how this happens right after Australia starts attacking the Japanese for whale hunting???

Revenge tactic maybe??

Re: APPROVED: $60m State Swimming Centre

Re: Adelaide Transport Woes

Well dont hold your breath AtD and adam because it doesnt seem like we will get a big overhaul of any of these.

The government has said they have put money for south road and our trains, but whether they actually do anything about it is a different story!!

Re: Ideas on how to attract more people to SA?

This is what I am talking about toofar also. We can harp on about our laid back lifestyle all we want, but the majority of people we will attract are people wanting to put their feet up and enjoy a relaxed lifestyle. I too hear a lot of peoples stories how they come to Adelaide from Sydney, however ...

But decided that he may want to consid...

Re: Article: City Tram Track To Grow

So will409. If we were to overhaul all our track to tip top shape, and electrified our network, what speeds could we achieve and how much time would we be saving?

Re: Melbourne risks becoming 'a backwater like Adelaide': Brumby

Other than to get a better job, another reason why so many people leave Adelaide to Melbourne and Sydney is so they can live in 'The Cool City.' Its like when your in high school and you wish you hung around in the cool crowd, so you abandon your friends to join the popular gang (Melbourne) who make...

Re: Ideas on how to attract more people to SA?

In saying this, if we were to promote Adelaide as a cheap city, then what kind of people will we be looking at bringing over here?

We might end up as one big refugee camp for the poor.
