Re: Riverlea (Buckland Park) | 12,000 dwellings | $3b

Just got an update from Riverlea, latest land release sold out in 10 minutes. Against the opinion of many on here, this estate is extremely popular. Looks like every release gets sold out. https://www.riverlea.com.au/for-sale/ Who said it wouldn't be popular? Indeed many of the big issues are ones ...

Re: #Official Defence Thread

Initial reports last night mentioned Perth. Glad this has been cleared up this morning, and the build will remain here. Would have been a devastating loss to the state had this been moved interstate. We'll see. Remember how much was initially announced as planned for SA in the previous deal that en...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

That's a massive list of questions. I'm happy to do the research on them over the next week or so if in return you are happy to do the same for an equally long list about dealing with the consequences of continued fossil fuel extraction and use.

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

As I said above, prove it. You're labelling people who support moving to renewables as greenies. Many of us in this thread support moving to renewables. Therefore many of us in this thread by your definition greenies. I know I don't hold the motivations you assign to greenies, and I've seen nothing...

All cost and manufacturing aside, as at 5pm SA time.. 5:30 EST .. wind power generation for all states was less than 5%. At the time of day, with the greatest load.. 5% eith SA90% supplied by gas. Vic, NSW and Qld mainly coal. Building more wind turbines will not magically create more generation, r...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

See lots of complaints, but as someone who wants to install solar in the next few years it honestly doesn't seem like a terrible idea. Supply and demand is a thing, and if there's an over-supply of power being fed into the grid where is it meant to go?

Does anyone know if there's a replacement for this development, or another of it's kind that's on the cards for Adelaide?

Re: PRO: Magill Road precinct

This was the proposed tram route by Weatherill. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trams_in_Adelaide#/maplink/0 Too many corners in this suggestion, it should continue from North Terrace to Magill Road without turning. Wasn't the plan here as part of a city loop to have it go up Rundle Street through th...

Bunnings is repainting their exterior at the moment, so I'm guessing plans have changed from them closing down and being replaced by parking?

Re: PRO: Magill Road precinct

If you want to attract artists, you need trams. Extending the botanic gardens tram along Magill Road makes a lot of sense. Unlike the plans to extend it along the Parade, with Magill Road you don't have any corners, so the tram is faster and easier to construct. I agree in principle with massively ...

[APP] Re: 36 Grote Street | ~126m | 35 levels | apartments

I'm hoping this goes up mainly because it will be a nice counterpoint to the Central Market tower. If the two are under construction at the same time especially it will be a fantastic gateway into the city.

Re: Storm drain issues

It's an ongoing issue, but a bunch of councils along the Torrens are involved in plans to increase vegetation and wetlands to help clean the outflows. Only a small part of what is required though.
