Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

China Southern will maintain a 5 weekly service Guangzhou – Adelaide between 14 December 2019 and 16 February 2020. This instead of a previously filed 7 weekly.

Cheers

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Adelaide airport pty ltd and the state government must be disappointed with the lack of interest from international airlines. If you look at how many international airlines there are flying to Perth it really is embarrassing how Adelaide has struggled in this area in recent times. Air Asia pulled o...

Re: News & Discussion: Low/Mid-Rise CBD Development

Extension of 3 - 5 levels of this office building opposite the RAh is expected to be approved by the ACC next week. Looks ok, but I'm still wishing that the government will back down from building the new WCH on parklands and take over this whole site. This whole site you mention should be for medi...

Re: News & Discussion: Low/Mid-Rise CBD Development

Extension of 3 - 5 levels of this office building opposite the RAh is expected to be approved by the ACC next week. From a construction, structural integrity viewpoint, how do you do that ON TOP of an existing building? Note I’m not a builder or engineer. Just interested in knowing. I'm not a struc...

Thinking into the future here, but at a future time when there is less car traffic in the city, the tunnel could be two lanes bringing traffic in in the morning, and taking it out in the evening
Yikes!

To those of you that don't see eye-to-eye with rev you need to understand that he is very passionate about Adelaide and SA. He's not bagging our city or state, he's frustrated and disallusioned by those in power. I too believe that we are wasting opportunities. So at times we may go overboard. So le...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Long-term vision is a good thing, but that does not mean it needs to be acted on from the word go. Of course some projects have to be done short term. However the way I see it if you have a vision look for the long term and build what you can with the money you have. A sports arena is a good exampl...

Yes was only referring to the hotel component (in reference to the pig and the lipstick). Sorry though to clarify my comments on the bridge and cathedral - this was in reference to the context of the arrival experience at the oval, which is pretty amazing right now. The bridge and cathedral form pa...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Ho Really, what's with all of your going against the grain of late? Time has been saved by the implementation of the O-Bahn tunnel, whether they needed to spend that much to make that happen is another story but there is no denying it has saved travel time for buses.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

There is nothing about the o-bahn corridor that makes it suitable for light rail. It's a brt, one of the most successful brts in the world, so it's not changing any time soon. You can't call spending money on it a waste just because you personally think that it should be a tram line. In terms of wh...

Glossing over the serious issues that Perth Stadium has, like the too hard playing surface, and the need for view and atmosphere obstructing crowd control fences around the entire fence line because the grandstands are elevated above the playing field. At least it doesn't kill its own grass as well...

Ok so let’s build a pig and then maybe think of putting lipstick on it down the track? You know that’s not going to happen (at least the lipstick part). I assume you are only talking about the hotel component. Well yes it is a pig any way you look at it. I've said it before. Adding the hotel in its...

You know SA Water in Victoria Square? Build a steel frame with patterned coloured-glass all round. This will also cover and improve the look of the upper part of the stadium where you see the unberbelly of the terraces. This could be done when they build the Northern Stand and when they raise the h...
