Re: #PRO: Roseworthy Garden Town

Latest information on this is it has been cancelled, for now.
Due to lack of jobs in the district for people living there, government are working on a solution to that problem.

Reliable source on this.

[COM] Re: PRO: Goodwood - Bowden rail grade seperation project | $

For example, if you look in the artist's impression of the Goodwood junction, the freight and Belair lines still cross the intersection at-grade, while the Noarlunga lines go underneath. For the love of God, this is 2012, I have not heard of (happy to be corrected on this) any major city which buil...

Re: Kilkenny TOD

I didn't even say the quote you said there. Pretty sure the quote at the start of his post is exactly what you said in the post above his... The end of his post is not quoting you, he is stating the attitude of nimby's. Just that building a TOD on a public park used by the community is a bad idea. ...

Re: ## General Public Transport thread

Looking forward to getting a Smart Card eventually which will make things even quicker. But where and how does one get a smart card??? Maybe not at that stage of implementation yet...

Re: Mawson Lakes - Not just another suburb

The carpark at Mawson Lakes train station is the work of retards. To get from your car to the bus/train you have to walk all the way around the stupid great square lake between the two.
