Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

It isn't difficult, we just need government to pull their finger out.

Look at the engineering feats around the world, even in developing countries. A few new train lines aren't anything major.

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Yeh we'll see... At what stage in the first quarter of the year? Because my first quarterly bill for 2024 which included January and February was higher then the previous quarter. Let's see if the next one in late May will be lower, or even higher. If I was a betting man, I'd wager it being higher. ...

[COM] Re: Festival Plaza Tower 1 | 115m | 27 Levels | Office

On another note re this precinct....those gum trees in front of the festival centre!!?? Can anyone imagine large eucalypts in front of the Sydney opera house? Whilst everyone's entitled to an opinion, you can see from some responses why this state is the way it is. That landscape we're talking abou...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

To be honest, I cannot see a business case for urban rail to Virginia and Riverlea ever stacking up, despite being quite a large potential catchment area (40,000+ people). It would be an extension of about 16-17km which you would need to double-track to join it to the existing Gawler line. This is ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

no no, I wasn't mentioning politics. Adelaide Airport's director just specifically said he wants China Southern and Cathay back before any new routes. So we have to wait for the Chinese to come back before we let in United Airlines. I'm frustrated because United look eager to get into the Adelaide ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Can the mods actually deal with this stupid off topic political crap that is 1000% not needed in this thread, before the two usual culprits spiral out of control?

2KW has not been "done over". There is no alternative rooftop bar being proposed that would hinder his business. The views are still there. They do not have exclusive rights to unobstructed views.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Hardly a surprise. We had a government that gave China the finger, then sucked up to the US. It's hardly unreasonable for the Chinese to say: Ok, get US tourists then. In no way should we get bogged down in the politics of China vs the US. However, having made a decision to take sides, why expect C...

This is definitely not sensational. If anything, it needs to be set back further and retain the existing space for a live music venue. http://wp.indaily.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/1200x800_borg-cube-over-cranker.jpg?resize=1313,876&quality=90 It's a pretty low quality image, not sure wha...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

On the flipside, other than tourism the South Island of NZ has bugger all industry (unless you count sheep farming), and their GDP per capita is significantly below Australia's. Granted the scenery in that part of NZ is beautiful, but there's a finite number of tourists that can be accommodated for...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Can guarantee this won’t happen before we get China southern and Cathay back. It’s frustrating because those two are going to take a while to come back, and United are interested NOW, not in 5 years time, now. Bloody hell wish we didn’t have to wait on the Chinese all the time. Hardly a surprise. W...

Re: News & Developments: Prospect

Absolute missed opportunity to build a new school to help cope with demand in the area. A school would be better at the Islington rail yard site across the road if they ever move them on from there. It's far larger and has more room for ovals/grass fields and such. The ridiculous thing is so many s...
