Some of our neighbourhoods and localities are genuinely saturated with petrol stations.

This is not a good thing.
Our state, our city, our future.

A century ago, every "corner store" sold tins of petrol. Now, every petrol station sells icecreams and coffee. Somewhere in between, blacksmiths became service stations, then closed as well. In a few decades, petrol might not be the thing it is today, if internal combustion engines become old technology, just like steam engines are now.

Things are not like they used to be, and not like they will be in future either.

If anyone knows have petrol stations always been able to trade 24/7 (or when did this come in) and so be excluded from the normal regulations/opening hours of say a supermarket, deli etc?

Is it specifically that they are petrol stations, or is any shop below a certain floor size allowed to trade any time it likes, and fuel outlets are what we notice at the moment because they have a large outdoor footprint as well?

Couldn’t find a relevant thread, but the Failed Bunnings site (Former Panorama TAFE site) is now for sale again with Colliers as of the last day or so.

Port Adelaide Enfield Council to upgrade Kilburn, Blair Athold end of Prospect Road

Plans for an up to $5 million makeover of the northern end of Prospect Road – in Kilburn and Blair Athol – have been released.

Port Adelaide Enfield Council has revealed a flyover vision of the planned project, which was released for public consultation this week.

The revamp – between Way Street and Kintore Avenue – has been designed to make the strip more pedestrian friendly, while also providing opportunity for more outdoor dining and events.

The project is expected to cost between $4 million to $5 million.

Mayor Claire Boan said the upgrade would be a welcome addition to an already vibrant community.

“The plan includes open areas where people can gather in appropriate ways and it will also light up the area for safety and vibrancy,” she said.

The council is also proposing to reduce the speed limit along Prospect Road between Way Street and Kintore Avenue to 40 km/h, to improve vehicle and pedestrian safety.

Public art has also been considered in the streetscape upgrade, which may include painted murals on blank walls, patterns on the road, and banners which change across the year.

Ms Boan said council would also be working alongside businesses in the area to ensure they can make the most of the street upgrade.

Final design plans are expected to be approved by council in December, with construction set to begin next year.

Major parts of the project include:

■ A larger community space which could be closed temporarily for small events at Gladstone Avenue

■ Improved traffic management, with Le Hunte Street identified as the most unsafe intersection in the project area

■ Landscaping, improved pedestrian movement and opportunity for outdoor dining near Kintore, Jersey and Hopetoun avenues along with Clifton Street

■ Upgrades for safer pedestrian movement and increased tree planting at IGA and Audrey Street

■ Increased tree planting in the median of Prospect Road

■ An opportunity to create landscape entry statements for the area

Looks awful. There's a video, and luckily I can't post it, because the narrators voice is one of the most annoying noises I've heard.

This section of Prospect Road is awful to begin with, and the only improvement I see is the road surface.
The right hand turning lanes in the middle of the road are too small, all be it there's no actual median island it's just painted lines but this upgrade looks like it will add the built islands. Hopefully they build them with actual usability.
They are going to line them with trees as well. I wonder if it will turn out like Torrens Road where the PortEnfield council lined the median with trees which have in several places lifted the curbing and road surface and nothing's been done about it for many years.

I wonder if it will match with the rest of Prospect road? Perhaps the PortEnfield and Prospect councils should sit down together and develop the same theme for the entire road.
