[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

I don't think the Adelaide City Council is involved in either of the proposals, I believe Renewal SA is the key proponent here. Agree ACC is not involved in the actual proposals but the ACC is responsible for the footpath, (the boulevard) - that was my concern raised, to ensure the continuation of ...

Re: Adelaide Plains | Development and News

The developer is promoting a 35Km trip via a MW to the CBD which will take 35 mins by car, that comment says to me this is being positioned as nothing more than an outer suburb as Rev mentioned previously.

Re: News & Discussion: Other Transport Projects

The real answer is to ensure the NS MW has a southern connection point to the SE FW so Mel to Per freight can go through Ade seamlessly and any freight that is Ade-Mel is dealt with on the shortest safest and same route as through Ade-Per freight. The Short South option is the right concept but clea...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

If the real vision is to regenerate Port Adelaide as a major hub then it is worth considering: Adding the Port Dock line back and make electrification from ARS to Port Dock a priority. Expand the original Port Dock transport hub vision for local area PT via bus to connect to PD rail for immediate ef...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

The Innovation Centre proposal has the tree lined footpath of the North Terrace Boulevard through to the Botanic Garden Entrance, however the Aboriginal Centre proposal does not as I pointed out previously, so one is contradicting the other. I know they are artists impressions but this needs to be c...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Surely the time must be soon for the State Government and its poster boy department Infrastructure SA, to either shit or get off the pot. PT to and on the LeFevre Peninsula was one to their top 10 priorities to come up with a plan – so far all their reports have been regurgitated waffle and no speci...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

The proposed building itself is unique but it needs to be positioned back from North Terrace. Additionally, the theme of a consistent plane tree lined boulevard on the northern side of North Terrace will be broken due to this building being too close and their proposal to put native shrubs and pools...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

Above all the rail corridor should be preserved as a rail corridor, even if this proposal doesn’t get up, it may have another future use we are not aware of today. That aside, let private enterprise put forward their business proposal in this particular case and let market forces do the rest. One th...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

John Gerber, the owner of Chateau Tanunda is attempting, once again, to re-launch a plan to bring back the Wine Train to run from Gawler to Tanunda with the ultimate aim of ARS to Tanunda in the longer term. As most already know, Tanunda is now end of the line since the recent severing of it on the ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

This revised proposal is a joke. Why does everything to do with the Adelaide CBD come back to on-street car parking? Adelaide CBD has more car parking station spaces available than either Sydney CBD or Melbourne CBD, why do people still expect on-street parking immediately at the front of the CBD bu...

[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...

Re: Events Post-Covid

The Fringe and Adelaide Festival are still happening at this stage. The Fringe has a variety of changes to comply with restrictions, and the venues will be laid out differently. The Feast Festival is currently happening in Adelaide, which was already a bit of a test of how events might happen in th...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

Fellas one important point about a soccer stadium. If we want a FIFA sanctioned stadium capable of attracting any World Cup matches (men or women) the stadium has to be 40,000 seat and covered. Anything less will always be a backyard stadium. Both Liberal and Labour need to acknowledge this. Please...
