[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

Why are they only planning this now!! Seems very chaotic, it' s no surprise that this section was to form part of a continuous motorway.

[CAN] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

Just thought i'd reactivate this thread:

1. To illustrate the folly of our state govt
2. To clarify if this is cancelled once and for all, or I am sure I read somewhere that the Libs Govt was conducting a further study on the viability?

[VIS] Re: A new inner-city stadium is one of a raft of big ticket projects on the government's agenda this year.

Completely agree with the sentiments on this forum. This proposal is bat shit crazy - there is no way it can stack up economically, are sporting complexes and roads all this government cares about? Especially after scrapping a relatively modest rail extension to Port Adelaide (which would aid gentri...

[PRO] Re: Brighton Road Grade Separation

Can someone in the know please tell me the point of this grade separation, when there are further bottlenecks at Tapleys/Anzac - in my view traffic merely gets to the bottlenecks quicker

[CAN] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

I use the Belair Line regularly and from what I can tell, the service is very well patronised (especially during peak hour). Someone mentioned closing stations, I don't think that is required, Lynton is actually a very busy stop. Even in its current form (without much improvement), the service is st...

[CAN] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

Yep, agreed with all said - this STINKS.

So the Libs claim grade separation is investment in P.T - umm, strictly not true , it's to ease congestion for motorists predominately.

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Looking at that video , the upgrade looks pretty bleak to me, more trees and plantings are required.

I know its bad, and yes i'm probably an asshole - but i'd prefer a Contemporary Art Gallery to be honest. We had some fantastic designs from the competition - all for nought it appears.

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

They just don't get it do they?

In a country like Japan, with a very successful public transport system, at almost every major station, there is a sizable shopping precinct, makes sense you see?

Off topic, but when considering the recent station upgrade at Marion - missed opportunity there too!
