Probably a bit late for it now, but there are so many other better sites for a WCH. West End Brewery / Coke site on Port Road. Or that massive Holden site between Pirie and Grenfell Streets.

Parkland concerns aside, how is next door to the RAH with close access to Port and South Road not the best location for what is essentially just another specialised wing of the hospital?

Completely agree that a carpark built on parklands is a lazy, unimaginative, backward use of public land. Build it over the train line, under the site, or in the triangular space between the rail lines. Our parklands is what makes Adelaide unique, and we need to stop eroding them. No matter how small.

A carpark benefits staff and visitors. Staff and metropolitan visitors wouldn't need to drive if we actually had time-competitive public transport infrastructure.

A carpark for rural and country visitors? Fair enough. But build it anywhere but parklands.

This city has an obsessive car fetish. Always to the detriment of the environment.

Only Adelaide has parklands.
