[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

I think you've misinterpreted my post, and/or vice-versa. By blaming mentality it sounded like you were suggesting the reason that crowds don't show up in greater numbers to A League games was not because the offering was poor but because people weren't willing to change their mindset to attend what...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

And here lies one of the major problems with this code in Australia. The mentality. Blaming the 'mentality' for a code's average performance in attracting fans to games is akin to a musician blaming the mentality of people for not buying their music or going to their gigs. If people don't get excit...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

I highly doubt it is a red herring. I'd love to see a comparison between youth participation rates at club level between Football (soccer) and Aussie Rules. I would expect them to be fairly equal in the traditional Aussie Rules states with Football well ahead in the Rugby States. I didn't mean that...

So much better than the design in the original renders - I always thought it looked very disjointed with the large gap between the curved top floors and the squarer podium. This looks far more cohesive and less top-heavy.

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

Surely we're always going to have a problem attracting large numbers of Aussies to the soccer because the vast majority of noteworthy games are played on the other side of the world in the middle of the night. Australia doesn't and will likely never have a league large and talent-filled enough to co...

Re: I hope everyone is travelling well and getting through this.

Nothing much changes for me really - have been WFH since March so that will continue. Won't be able to take the kids out but we're lucky to have a nice back garden with play equipment etc so they'll be good for six days. No childcare so that'll make things a bit busier on the days when that would no...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

The location I suggest is about 650m from ARS, if they build a second foot bridge. About 660 without a footbridge. How did you come to that distance just out of interest? I can't find a route from ARS under 830m, with a route involving a new footbridge being nearer 1km. I'm not trying to be pedanti...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

Hindmarsh is literally only a couple of kilometres out of town... close to train and tram stops, close to the new major freeway that's being planned through our city. Close to the airport, in a nice area of town with things like Queen Street and Bowden nearby. Good parking available. It's also wort...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

I think you could argue the Entertainment Centre has as good or better public transport connections than Adelaide Oval -- it's physically closer to both the tramline and railway as well as key bus routes. I am not sure if your comment is sarcasm or if you are serious? If serious, what are you smoki...

I think the road name has been discussed before but I'm not convinced the Kaurna people would want their name associated with what is essentially a giant scar across the Adelaide Plains.

So by that logic are all two lane tunnels inherently unsafe?

So here's what I think we'll end up with, or thereabouts (thanks Windows Paint). https://i.imgur.com/OY93car.png The tunnel alignments are presumably flexible - would there be any problems with going as the crow flies rather than following South Road? A couple of the distances for the sections don't...

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

I'm trying to place that render of the tunnel portal. Does anybody have any ideas on the location? Me too - is it at the Darlington end? It'll be interesting to see whether the West Therbarton Hotel will be saved under this plan - the article suggests the tunnel will surface just south of that loca...

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

The answer to this rise congestion was in the KPMG report. It was called 'Short South', a 1 billion dollar freight route through Eden Hills and St Marys that connects the SEF with the NSC at the Darlington end. It was costed by KPMG and deemed viable. All of the other alternatives, Short North, a t...

Plus, how would a training site activate the area? A large open space with a few buildings mostly frequented by the players and the relatively small Crows staff base?
