Re: News & Discussion: Low/Mid-Rise CBD Development

I'd like to see one of the Woolworths Metro style stores that they have in the eastern states operating in the southern part of the CBD. I'm pretty sure the size of those are comparable to the IGA that just opened. The prices are normal Woolworths prices though. Are you sure? I recall their prices ...

What about Brighton Rd? Are there any blueprints/plans for grade separation there?
Are you talking about the train or the tram?

[PRO] Re: Main South Road & Victor Harbor Road Upgrade

A video update from late December for the Victor Harbor Road project. Works are progressing well, most of the earthworks have been done.

[PRO] Re: Westfield Marion (2019/20 Extension)

In regards to the development in this vicinity, can I suggest renaming some more shopping precincts after nearby suburbs? Just in order to continue the trend of inaccuracy. 'Marion' shopping centre is more suited to being named Sturt, or Oaklands. The actual suburb of Marion is at least a mile nort...

I just noticed that postcard has a very rare photo of the construction of the Hungry Jack's carpark in the background.
I think it's actually looking West towards King William Street, but I'm not sure what's under construction.

[U/C] Re: Ovingham Level Crossing Removal | $231m

There is no way Churchill Road is getting widened, and nor should it. I would even support making it a 50km/h road like Prospect Road. This corridor should continue to focus on increasing density in our inner suburbs. If there are traffic issues, the cars can go somewhere else. There are plenty of o...

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

A rail underpass wouldn't work because... the NS Motorway Tunnels will be in the way! I'm pretty sure tunnels are being positioned in a way that will still allow for a rail underpass at Cross Rd to be constructed one day in the future. Correct, that was the plan in the previous design and is most l...

[COM] Re: M2 Northern Connector | 15.5km | $867m

Further to SBD’s comment, the lack of lighting outside of the interchanges on the N. Connector would likely be a factor too, unlike the Southern Expressway which is mostly under light. I’ve found even myself that my eyes get weary driving along the Connector at night. The Southern Expressway is def...

Re: News & Developments: Tonsley

I've taken the car for a tour of the full Tonsley site, and the residential component is slowly coming together. The new La Loft hotel also looks done.

Re: University of South Australia | Developments & News

I do not understand the "forced" merger of these two universities - big is not beautiful and the culture at each of our three unis is quite different (which is not a bad thing - unis specialise). The best universities in the world are not the biggest - Adelaide as a population of 1.6m and...

Re: Speeding up train services

This topic has come up so many times it's not even funny. Politically it won't happen because you are taking away a transport option from people. Operationally it is irrelevant because you can simply run trains as an express service past the stations you think are unworthy of a service. People have ...
