Re: News & Discussion: Transport Projects

If you're so concerned about trams having priority, then don't run them on street. It's a trade off. I catch the trams out of and into the city every day, the time they spend at lights is minimal.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Parklands

Agree with all of Shuz's points except for the office development. My decision would entirely depend on what we would be getting if it were to be an office.
