Even with Urbanstone gone I don't see how they can stay at grade and keep both the cemetery and the brickworks, the turn would be too tight

[VIS] Re: New inner-city stadium

What is even the point of a 30k seat inner city stadium that can't host soccer games (and by extension, all rectangular field sports)? What sports and concerts exactly do they think are going to keep the place financially viable? It's way too big for any of the court sports, they won't use it at all...

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

That artists rendition is a comical reduction from the early renders, puts some of the bait and switch from the last few years of city high rise proposals to shame. You just knew it was going to end this way after the interim government put the pergola over the top and called it a fine new developme...

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

Before expansion, they need to look at overhauling the existing line - in particular most of the track between Paradise and TTP is rough as guts, and is so loud in the buses that it defeats noise cancelling headphones. There are a few other spots like that as well.

Re: Superloop 500

No 500 in the city would be a huge loss. Doesn't really make sense to blame the pandemic when we are having football with 20,000 spectators going. Masks are supposed to protect you? Why can't the riggers putting up grand stands and marquees where masks? The street circuit event, either for the Supe...

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

Can you just elaborate what you mean/understand how a road can make a profit? Do you mean a cost/benefit analysis? I am curious do you know how they value/ monetise the economic benefits? Yes a CBA, and no I have no idea. I have a few Civ Eng friends, and Adelaide being tiny, they've all had some k...

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

I was told this weekend that the Feds are refusing to commit major funding to the main stretch, even if the state Libs had a shovel ready plan for the infrastructure stimulus money on time, because there's no business case that can be written up which shows it will make a profit. No profit means zer...

[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. The brewery site is 100% beyond doubt...
