Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

Came off the expressway at this exit last night, and I could see the lights for Expressway to Main South and as soon as Main South through traffic got the green light, the leds all switched off, so very bright and useful when exiting the expressway, and not distracting to other directions of travel!...

[COM] Re: [COM] Re: Armada Arndale (Redevelopment) | $200m

Was Coles originally Bi-Lo? It feels like an old Bi-lo. I wasn't in SA when Bi-Lo was discontinued and most turned into Coles. I only know one ex Bi-Lo that was never a Coles, a lot become Coles and closed though. The store I know is Brighton, was a Bi-Lo, Romeos IGA, Foodworks and a Woolworths - n...

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

The spilt traffic is how in the UK and Europe they create free flowing highways and less traffic trying to change lanes at the last minute; which is a SA speciality, oh I need to go to Goodwood, oh well let’s just change from the right hand lane over to the left hand lane at the last minute. Lol. 1...

Re: Kmart coming in with the wrecking ball.

When I worked in that centre (at the time they also built the Drakes) about 10 years ago, there was always a possibility for a department store to go in between the 2 supermarkets, so without getting past the paywall, I'm not sure why they'd need to demolish for this. The space still looks to be the...

Re: SA Economy

But there are a lot of boarded up shops in the suburbs. It's noticeable at Hallett Cove, and worse at Noarlunga where half the downstairs level of Colonnades is boarded up No argument with Hallett Cove, the food court is miserable, with only Wendy's left. EB games in closing in the coming days, and...

Re: News & Developments: Prospect

When Masters pulled out, the Noarlunga store was nowhere near completion. They continued working on it until it was finished (minus branding). So who's to know when they'll finish up with the Kaufland building.

Yes I agree and its good there’s no change to Mile End. I heard that they will be closing the Marion Bunnings with the next Westfield expansion/re-development. Does anyone know if they will come back once it’s finished? I don't believe so. They built the edwardstown store to the north and the Reyne...

[COM] Re: Vicinity Colonnades (Extension) | $52m

This upgrade is progressing well. There were some delays with the travellator but the new one is up and running now. The old escalator down the (former) Myer end is in the process of being removed too. Alongside the travellator they have cut back 2-3 metres of all the shops to widen the walkway (as ...

A Bunnings is being built on Panalatinga Road at Reynella, on the old winery factory site (between Pimpala and Reynell Roads, on the western/northbound side).

Will be good to see this part of the centre getting an upgrade. It's looking a bit tired and there are so many vacant stores down here.. https://i1.au.reastatic.net/2a5fa6044ef0e1c573b3cdb96eff308ea4c9699a510c4e6daea1588feb44f044/document0.pdf Looks like the back half of Myer will become a new mini-...

Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

Hi Bits, where did you hear this? I work for Coles, they are highly promoting that all metro stores will be open 11-5 Monday including radio ads constantly. Im currently working in a small store (North East) that's open Monday and my old small store (South) is also open. Sent from my SM-G960F using ...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

The government should really be buying any property along any of its future corridors when it pops up for sale, for a much cheaper price than it could be in 10 years time, the rent it out until it needs to be demolished. No extra cost to compensate owners relocating. No hassle of people feeling like...

Was a good day and well set up. Would have been nice if more tours were guided though as it was almost 2 hours from when I got there until the next available one, so just took a basic one. Who recorded the live Facebook video? I was on that same tour! (I can tell because of the lady getting out of h...
