[PRO] Re: 75-79 King William Street | 120m | 34 Levels | Hotel

Gooing to be one fun intersection for a while with the Services Australia demolition/construction site going on just across the road at the same time

Re: News & Discussion : New Restaurants, Bars & Night Clubs

Red October was an odd one with such a large footprint. I hope these Kiki bars really bring a great crowd. Do you know if it’s like Rocket/Mr Kim’s where the bars connect? Or at least use to. Memphis Slim's uses the back stairs inside to share the toilets with Shotgun Willie's, so in theory you can...

Re: News & Discussion : New Restaurants, Bars & Night Clubs

Three bars just opened on the old Red October site - Blue Venus upstairs, Shotgun Willie's at ground level, and Memphis Slim's House of Blues downstairs, the latter two both belonging to the owner of Cry Baby. Went to Slim's on Friday, my kind of place https://www.broadsheet.com.au/adelaide/food-and...

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

Which still leaves us with clogged arterial roads and a very expensive half empty motorway. The more cars making longer trips we move onto the motorway, the easier life gets for people doing local A to B and our bus network.

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

Entrances/exits should cater for freight movements only. This is where Darlington failed a bit. Why? Getting freight off of South Rd and Salisbury Hwy isn't the only reason for the motorway, South Rd is gridlocked just by cars and buses nearly all day, getting the longer distance daily traffic off ...

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

I found a few images of one of the earlier Darlington proposals. The early design had the trench just on the west side and few less lanes. The upcoming Torrens to Darlington section should have minimal entry and exit points, I'd go with entry/exit points at Anzac Highway and maybe Cross Road. They'...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Three digit numbers were for the outer regions or less frequent back street services. The main bus from Happy Valley/Aberfoyle Park/Flagstaff hill, which was now terminating at Flinders Medical Centre instead of going into the city, was going to be called the 330/X331, neither of which would be out...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Gonna be honest, I didn't see how the proposed change to bus numbering was any more understandable or logical than the existing one. The new numbers were as much a series of disconnected characters as the old ones, and only seemed to make people have to memorise the new number for the same buses the...

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

Yeah it looks like they shrank the footprint considerably, the government must have plans for the back half of the block currently occupied in the renders by a nondescript grass area.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Displacing workers with lower paid workers - particularly immigrants and trainees. This is pretty much what happened with the privatisation of busses. But you could also wonder why the government is paying unionised ASOX's to clean public transport toilets when they can get immigrants to do it for ...

Backpackers hostel on the corner of Wakefield and Pulteney Street(s) is up for sale, never thought COVID would bring about some positive change to the city.
What's wrong with backpacker hostels? A city needs more than just 3 to 5 star hotels for tourism.

Yeah the C2 bus stop, which I use, was closed as of first service on 16/1 and relocated for approximately 2 years to out front of the NAB building, and the first bit of fencing to close the area off started going up the day after. The only problem so far is that they closed a bit of Taxi Rank space ...
