Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Keolis Downer's contract begins today. It is a complete travesty that this has been allowed to happen. Privatising important public assets serves only the outdated ideology of a dangerous political party. These types of posts are amusing, I mean are you talking about the Labor party or the Liberal ...

A pass for what? Second rate tournaments of almost zero relevance? We recently got an ATP tour event yes? LOL, it's an ATP 250 event, the LOWEST tier of But there is nothing wrong with that, given the size of Adelaide. What does the ranking go on? Prize money? Or just quality and amount of courts?

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

I was told this weekend that the Feds are refusing to commit major funding to the main stretch, even if the state Libs had a shovel ready plan for the infrastructure stimulus money on time, because there's no business case that can be written up which shows it will make a profit. No profit means ze...

It was not so much the change of government but the people of Norwood, when given a choice between the prestige of having a tram or keeping the gum trees in the centre of the parade, most decided the gum trees were more important. so the liberals quietly dumped the tram plan because they did not ha...

Re: News & Discussion: National Broadband Network

I was wondering that too. I got HFC just before COVID, sitting at 50mbs and never had an issue really.

I would say, going faster is simply cost prohibitive for me.

Re: News & Discussion: Low/Mid-Rise CBD Development

I personally hate what they’ve done to that square. One developer should not be allowed to develop so much land in the one space individually without having a cohesive precinct plan approved. They offer poor architectural form, poor amenity (go to an open and see if you could fit a mattress in the ...

Yes it was.

I thinking calling this picking winners is stretch too.

Sure SMA is unaccountable but it's still a good project and looking around the world it's worked in other places. So there is no reason why this won't.

It's not meant to be exclusive for sports teams all the time, I mean they're already going to struggle massively to make a profit so why would they shoot themselves in the foot extra hard by turning away any paying customers, but I'd wager it will be when the Indian Cricket Team hits town whether t...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Contracts, Service & Policy

What background or knowledge does Corey have in transport systems and planning? Absolutely zero.

Out here in the real world though :...
