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

…. just the investments and developments that are in the works there and in the pipeline over the next decade or three, blow our entire pt network out of the water. A fine example of building for future needs, rather than playing catch-up to meet today's needs. This has been an Adelaide problem for...

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

Buses are the issue, they are slow and clog up main roads around Adelaide and the CBD. Melbourne also has an extensive tram network which runs mostly on the roads. Are they clogging up the roads but generating much of the PT usage? An interesting question. Have you tried to drive in Melbourne? Tram...

Btw, China isn't that big of an investor in our country ... … Nearly a trillion dollars of investment comes from the USA, 987 billion. 686 from the UK, 348 from Belgium and 241 from Japan. The next biggest is China (for all intents and purposes Hong Kong and China can be lumped together in this sce...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

Honestly, I am totally against any form of graffiti, except what is done with permission (e.g. council promoted graffiti walls). It just shits me that people think it's okay to deface public property or someone else's private property. What's really weird is that these fuckwits think they have a rig...

Re: Port Augusta & Far North | Developments & News

I am sure I read something awhile ago that said the Carrapateena Mine wants to ship its products from this port. I don't think Carapateena is a magnetite mine though. IIRC there were many magnetite mines planned in the Braemar system, around Yunta. I seem to remember talk about shipping the ore fro...

Gepps Cross pretty much relies on the trash and treasure market to keep afloat
Actually I'd say that the weekly Gepps Cross Market (fruit and veg) brings more custom than the trash and treasure. Definately the case when I've been there in the last year or so.

Is this the first time in Adelaide we have seen bluestone cottages integrated into a new development? Can't think of any off the top of my head. The facade of the bluestone cottages on Roper St were incorporated into the Roper Street frontage of the carpark on the corner of Wakefield St. Also I thi...

Re: Seaton Park Drive In

How hard would it be to set up a pop-up drive-in? With Bluetooth readily available these days there would be no need for speakers or even posts with the connections to your car radio aerial. Earthworks (the low mounds to create the vertical viewing angle) could be done in a day in a vacant lot, prob...

About 4 years ago DEW (DEWNR at the time) consolidated 7 sites into 81-95 Waymouth St.

Very good for productivity but the floorplates are large enough for about 120 people per floor, which can get very noisy.

I don't expect that plaza to be particularly large after all those buildings go in. The available land is not huge.

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

You can't make a freight railway more efficient by reducing the horizontal distance if it still goes over the highest point. If it's 1:45 or 1:48 now from near Keswick to Mount Lofty, the fix has to be to not go near Mount Lofty Station, not to find a more direct route. The route does not have to b...

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

Rail is great for hauling freight long distances, or for hauling bulk (rocks and seeds) on a regular basis. It is not so good for short distance (up to about 800km) general freight because of the time needed to transload from truck to train and back to truck for final delivery, vs stay on the truck ...

Ernst & Young from Wednesday will have all it's 6,000 staff in Australia working from home. But SCOMO still has his head up his own ass.

I would love to see no traffic lights around the ANZAC Highway and Donald Bradman Drive. Imagine what could be possible here ? Get ANZAC Highway moving !!!
There are no traffic lights at this intersection, as Anzac Highway and sir Donald Bradman Drive do not meet each other.
