[SWP] Re: SAHMRI Stage 2

Nice photo. Does anyone know how long the screw on those rigs last? Can they be refurbished or do they become scrap once they have worn out? Where are they made? Are they a single piece top to bottom or are there several bits screwed together with a cutting point on the bottom? No idea about the lo...

[SWP] Re: SAHMRI Stage 2

it looks like some some rebar piling cages have appeared on the site (on the right hand side). A curious trench has also been dug around the North Terrace edge and filled with what look like foam blocks which are being cemented in place. A vibration suppression strategy maybe? https://i.imgur.com/vk...

[SWP] Re: SAHMRI Stage 2

Definitely getting closer to the next construction phase. Even with the filling & leveling of the holes that were dug to remove contaminated soil etc, there's still a fairly large drop (about 5m) from the front of the site to the back corner, so there might not be much more re-excavation required. T...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

Also as alluded to earlier, the last time a stadium had moving parts they couldn't even lift a bunch of lightbulbs. But hey, let's go for a 120m * 70m football pitch :lol: Tottenham has just built a brand new slide in / slide out pitch. It's made of three 30x100m segments and weighs just under 10,0...

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

The 'new' South Rd / Grange Rd intersection occupies an area about 85m X 85m. A similar designed intersection at HBR won't quite fit with the existing road alignment if you want to preserve the Thebby & the school opposite, but if you shifted that bit of HBR south by 20-30m it'll fit much more easil...

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

Yesterday afternoon there was a drilling rig set up in the wide median strip on the western side of South Rd at Hindmarsh (ie the bit separating South Road from the Brickworks shopping center). It could be there for core sampling etc.

[SWP] Re: SAHMRI Stage 2

The tent has been moved (perhaps for the last time - it looks like its being dismantled), revealing the excavation work that was taking place underneath. The old retaining walls are being taken apart - they'll probably remove the remaining bits once the crane is gone. https://i.imgur.com/V2Ogbkk.jpg

Recent progress:
The 'tent' has been moved around again and you can just see an excavator working inside. Demolition of the old retaining walls is also underway.

[SWP] Re: SAHMRI Stage 2

Lots of activity now - the shed/tent has been moved revealing some excavation that has been sealed over with plastic & it sounds like there's lots of jackhammering going on inside the tent in its new location. The tent has a large air ventilation system attached to it so possibly it is there because...

[SWP] Re: SAHMRI Stage 2

I know the final design of a building often differs from the fancy computer renders we see, but this takes the cake! :D https://i.imgur.com/gE66xRs.jpg Any ideas what the shed is really for? Shy workers? Underground excavation? The base is made of metal beams that were brought in by crane, so its go...

What the hell is Knoll talking about "tunnels are back on the agenda after Labour ruled them out" ?! The Libs haven't had an agenda for the N/S corridor since MATS. It did not ever include tunnels. In fact the previous Labour government did have an agenda, which incorporated a short tunnel. This gu...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

For years water has been pooling under many pavers, resulting in pedestrians getting soaked each time they step on loose stones. In any kind of wet weather they also get quite slippery (the ones along the riverfront at Elder park are even worse). It would be better if ACC had chosen pavers that wer...
