Re: New $55m pool floated for bus depot.

The proposal is to replace the North Adelaide site which would be demolished.
What is the second site you are talking about?

Re: [CAN] 10 Anzac Highway | Kaufland Supermarket

I also said that there's plenty of people, single parents & their kids and so on, who are in need but are on waiting lists while the scumbags who trash public housing and their neighbourhoods get placed straight away. Quite clearly my opinion isn't that we shouldn't provide public housing, but that...

Re: Moving the airport to a less populated area

American Airlines Hq is Dallas Fort Worth. Southwest Airlines Hq is Dallas Live Field. Both use them as Fortress Hubs and direct most their traffic through them. Also Dallas is a major tech and medical precinct. Much of the household names in computers are from Dallas, moreso from the 80's-90's era.

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

South Carolinas many billions spent on Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Power Station that likely will never be turned on.
That is surely up there for recent example of nuclear power costing a fortune and not delivering.

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

The hbr intersection is 7 lanes as it stands with a fair bit of space everywhere.
You only need 2 lanes of through traffic in each directions.
Which to me means you could do the cut and cover in 2 halves.

Exactly $250m is dirt cheap compared to tunnelling that distance.
Much cheaper and easier to just buy the land.

Not only will it be cheaper and less risky upfront it will much cheaper and less risky for the life of the road, aka forever.

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

Paradise already had 3 very significant park n ride carparks on both sides of Darley Road. Darley Road was also always lined both sides of the road with cars on the street for about 1km from the Interchange. I don't think locals would notice the difference. Cars will continue to be everywhere near t...

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

Arndale will continue to exist for ages but it has proven that it is not a leading mall. It is just an OK local mall. It is like Hollywood Plaza. In that it is a decent size, it is the destination for locals and once held ambitions of being a draw card for people outside the area but wasn't able to ...

Re: Should the O-Bahn be converted to light rail?

Klemzig, Paradise and Tea Tree Plaza become more like (low floor) railway platforms, long and spacious. I would keep the arrivals platform separate from the main track so that express trams may pass if necessary. Obviously the buses need to be spread out a little in the interchange area to disperse...

Re: Should the O-Bahn be converted to light rail?

Yes it does at the moment........because the Adelaide heavy rail network has such low frequencies.......what if A-400'S ran every 5 minutes instead of every 15 minutes....thats 6480 people per hour Obahn is said to have capacity of 18,000 an hour. With your rail approach what kind of massive interc...
