Re: News & Discussion: Trams

FWIW, from this pic, it looks like the North Terrace line is getting some good loads. 20190412_143609~2.jpg I've been on the tram this week rather than riding, and have noticed the Botanic tram is much more popular compared to the first few weeks, still pretty packed standing past the railway stati...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

If only we had stuck to the earlier O-Bahn tunnel plan, removing Rundle Rd in favour of a new road connecting with Grenfell St — we could have had a much grander combined Rundle/Rymill Park.

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

It's significant in size, and it's pretty much the last remaining evidence of the former dockyards (since so much of it was needlessly demolished). To me, one of the attractions of living in the Port should be its history as a working port. Remove all that, then what's the point? You may as well jus...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

I firmly believe the continued debate is entirely in bad faith. It's not about believing in a better route than proposed, it's about continuing to hold up the project so that nothing ever happens.

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

On the topic of Pirie St, was walking around yesterday and noticed that most of the zebra crossing outside the council building has now been removed. :toilet: I crossed it last night and it seemed to all be there? I just checked Google Street View and it looks the same there as it did last night. T...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

The Aquatic Centre reminds me a bit of a classic case of the Government wanting a school to shut down. They plant the seed in the media that the school is struggling and numbers are dropping, but refuse to commit to any expenditure to it. What do you know- no parent wants to send there kid to a sch...

The Crows can fuck right off taking over a community facility. Build your own on private land.

The images show a Coles supermarket under the actual markets a big open atrium that will link the old markets to the new area which is where the current Coles is which will have offices above it - the recently refurbed facade will obviously remain and the old markets behind it will be rebuilt with ...

[VIS] Central Market

Note that the article says the renders were early concepts, and that they've "advanced significantly" since. That said, if it's anything like these, this will be an incredible redevelopment.

Re: Vision: CBD Underground Rail Loop

Really interesting concept.....however there is one thing that I think is a total disaster, and that is the use of lifts/elevators......very, very, slow at moving passengers up to street level compared to escalators.... also a lot more dangerous if there is a fire. Modern metro building techniques ...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

KWS north of Vic Sq has 2 lanes and no ability to drive on tracks, so I fail to understand why the southern end — which has less traffic — needs the tram lane for cars as well. Not having a right turn may be a minor annoyance if you don't know where you're going, but surely anyone with a modicum of ...
