[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

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. Why build a stadium 300m from the old...

I'm gonna guess it's because they have a contracted drone operator filming the project.
More regular drone flights would be something people would be interested in.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

With newly appointed SA transport minister Corey Wingard promising that in the next 6 months items would be added to the Infrastructure Australia priority list.
Hopefully an underground CBD rail link is one of them.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

In a few years time SA will be the only mainland state without trains going through its CBD. Adelaide will never have an efficient rail system without one.
With the completion of the Gawler electrification next year this will now be possible. The sooner the better I would think.

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

Not sure how any of that fits the brief for an inner city stadium to enhance the existing riverside precincts. What brief for an inner city stadium to enhance the riverside precincts? As far as I'm aware no decision has been made, and there's no specified intention of where they want to build a new...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

The problem with putting a stadium in the Southern Parklands is that public transport connections to the site are poor. For a low-controversy solution, one of the ovals in Park 25 (the area in Port Rd, Glover Rd and West Terrace) could be converted to a stadium. That's not a bad idea. Wouldn't be h...

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

If an arena is timed to be complete first, build a new football/soccer stadium on ETSA Park and tie in a relocated Mile End train station plus touted tramline to Adelaide Airport, or alternatively, you have the Entertainment Centre site which has tramline access and nearby trainline access. There i...

Yesterday SA Treasurer Rob Lucas has confirmed that because of falling GST revenues, as a result of COVID-19, long term projects that they had not committed to or funded like the 1.3b inner city sports stadium would not be affordable in the immediate future. :(

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

drove through Darlington today and finally those traveling south that don't wish to continue onto the SEXY can cut out 5 sets of lights. I was impressed as I thought there was nothing in it for us non expressway users. in the meantime I'll continue to dream about an entry/exit at major's road which...

Nine News Adelaide to show a story tonight ( Monday ) on the completion of the Darlington Upgrade Project. Expected time frame would be as little as 4 weeks which will be welcome news since this project has had many delays. The Southern Expressway users will have speed reductions lifted on the lowe...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

I would hope they are trialing a bus that is capable of doing more than 30 KPH up the 10 degree slope of the northern end of Flagstaff Road. This would mean motorists may not be tempted to unsafely merge on this steep gradient. There is a commitment for an extra lane for this road which is good but...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

I rode one of the new buses last week; it was the 8am or so G21F from Aberfoyle Hub to the City, and even still had the new car smell inside. How we got one on that route I don't know. I've seen a regular few on Flagstaff Road running the Aberfoyle Hub routes across the past two months. I would hop...
