Rollercoaster Freeway.
Speaking of the rollercoaster effect. Anyone got an insights on how the section between southern end of T2T and West Thebarton Rd will be achieved. The area where the Taylor Bridge is looks way too narrow to accomodate an at grade solution surely?

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

Here's a wild idea..why not connect the obahn with short tunnels here and there in the busiest parts of the city? We know it's possible to send the obahn into a tunnel since we have a tunnel for the obahn.. Grenfell street...instead of a huge amount of buses on the surface, why not move most them u...

Anyone who talks shit about art deco probably has the least important opinion on architecture going around

This is the building in question. Even if spruced up, I don’t think it’s all that appealing. https://www.flickr.com/photos/dct66/4507457048/ Totally agree. Basically a piece of shit building that should have been erased from KW st years ago. Agree with Ho Really and others, this site deserves a tal...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

There's not many images showing the tower, since there's a lot of uncertainty about if and when it's going to go ahead. It is going ahead. They haven't built the footings and 5 levels of core and columns just for fun. Yeah that is encouraging. However there doesn't appear to have been any announced...

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

If it is a full tunnel, I believe it will be the longest road tunnel in Australia at 11km. NorthConnex in Sydney is 9km and WestConnex has different tunnels between 7.5km and 9km. NorthConnex cost $3b, but I guess it wouldn't be comparable to ours because of a different geology. It will not be tunn...

[U/C] Re: 73-85 Pirie Street | 89m | 22 Levels | Office

Makes you wonder why taller buildings can get up in strange pockets of the city (like CBD east) meanwhile there seems to be this stunted growth with those buildings along Waymouth/Pirie and Currie/Grenfell. This building looks great but would have looked better with a podium spanning the whole site...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

Has anybody seen any images with the top of the Walker Tower shown?, it always seems to be cut off to not overwhelm the space - just co-incidence I guess? :wink: It’ll be a similar height to the Intercontinental It will be appreciably taller by approx 20m. Check the facebook link, the fly thru illu...

As reported on 9 News Adelaide on Sunday: The transport minister Stephen Knoll has delayed any final decision for the N-S corridor for at least another 6 months. They will employ tunnelling experts to assess the area for viability including what soil types are underground. More experts more reports...

This is a week old (sorry, forgot to upload), but shows a different perspective from other photos and also shows the Festival Tower columns starting to come out of the ground! Do the columns wed this site to the existing design or would it be possible for another design to be engineered to the same...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

As I have said before, the moment the Libs started talking about tunnels etc was just a delay tactic not to build anything. Another 10yrs is a horrible thought, but gives a clear understanding why someone has allowed a brand new petrol station built on the eastern side of south roads at Eddy Town. ...
