[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...

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...

Re: Events Post-Covid

Due to the virus, Tennis Australia will move all tournaments to be played in Melbourne for this summer. Therefore Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart, Sydney, and Perth will not host their respective events this summer. Melbourne comes out as the big winner, who would have thought considering the m...

And the joke continues with these pie in the sky, unworkable concepts – and that is very reason there is no proper plan of action. There is no single focus and there are too many conflicting self-interest groups. The most practical solution still might be a properly rebuilt Memorial Drive for hardco...

Re: Superloop 500

This announcement is of no surprise to me.

See my comments on this topic back in February this year.

Its future has been under a cloud in the background, since the start of the year.

It was just a matter of what explanation would be provided to justify the axing.

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

When the NS MW is completed, freight on the Melbourne-Perth freight corridor via Adelaide, (regardless if that freight is stopping in Adelaide or passing through), will take the shortest/fastest/most economical route, and that will be the 6KM stretch of Cross Road joining the SE FW to the new NS MW....

Re: Adelaide Oval news and events

The India Test series has been locked in for this summer. The four Tests have been awarded to Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney & Brisbane – Perth misses out (good). Adelaide has been given the best slot possible – one weekend before the xmas weekend, this is the time slot Adelaide should be locking in fo...

With this weeks announced pending closure (mid 2021) of West End Brewery at Thebarton surely this site would be a prime candidate as a replacement for Hindmarsh Stadium. The previously proposed railyards site could then be used for a smaller 15K multiuse arena. Surely the Crows jump all over the We...

A significant economic boost to any city involved, in immediate $$$ and international exposure on TV for future touris...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

In this vision there would only be one railway station – Tanunda. Tanunda could be upgraded into a transport & destination hub. It is the main historic township of the valley; it does have Chateau Tanunda next to the station and the ICC approved cricket oval on the grounds. To be honest, I've never...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

I would just like to point out that SANTOS is not "packing up and leaving". It is merely shifting staff around the country, and the number of people employed in the Adelaide office(s) will remain the same. They will just be different staff. I also doubt that SANTOS will be the tenant here as they o...

Re: Website not Secure?

For the past week or so, McAfee Firewall is blocking me access to this site.

It keeps reporting an intrusion is being detected, I have to manually allow each time.

This is the only site the Firewall keeps blocking.

Anyone else having this issue?
