Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

There is one important proposal missing from that list - the Highbury Quarry Pumped Hydro project. I hope this is still happening (400 mw for 4 hours, very useful in heatwaves, and a large amount of "disposable" energy) Well it is the Advertiser/AdelaideNow so it's probably an incomplete list, it c...

Thread cleaned up. Please keep on topic and without personal insults and profanities. I'm sick and tired of the racism, and sick and tired of the harassment and trolling from Nort and\ HiTouch which despite him being banned for two weeks continues today. I've even received another PM from him with ...

[U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

I would say it is a post war directory, because the land for Adelaide Airport is depicted, along with West Beach Road and Morphett Road shown as closed roads. The site for Adelaide Airport was selected in 1946 (but the airport was not built until 1955, and opened in 1956), so I would say the direct...

The vertical colour fade of the balconies actually complements SA Water and the Commonwealth Courts and reads better in person (although so does their miserable size). The concrete looks even worse (and won't be clad). That's probably the only redeeming feature of it at the moment. Take those balco...

]Correct on both counts. South Road ended at Grand Junction Road too. And before that, when I was a kid, it ended at a stop sign at Regency Road. The post for the stop sign was mounted in a 44-gallon drum of dirt, or maybe concrete, and Regency Road had no kerb along the northern side. You had to u...

[U/C] Re: SkyCity Adelaide Casino Expansion | 55m | 12 Levels | Hotel

The real missed opportunity is not building a purpose built casino and entertainment complex on the otherside of the morphett bridge (we got a a hospital, more uni, and a research building). Could have then turned tge existing building into a proper central station. Do we need a 'proper' central st...

Love the curves, the finished product will look great and bring a whole new hub of activity and interest but can't help but feel it's a lost opportunity in terms of an iconic tower in this space, imagine that building but all the way up to the 120m - 140m mark, to then be complimented by the Walker...

Lmfao how desperate and sad. If it was really about some nonsensical heritage of grass & trees, that would have been their argument from the start and they would have taken this action then.

It also can't be over emphasized how fantastic the stadium looks as you fly into Adelaide airport when it's in use. TBH though, when viewing AFL on TV, it looks more like a suburban Sydney ARL ground with the northern mound. Its probably great for the cricket spectators (it is after all a cricket g...

Does anyone know why there's no match here on Australia day this year ? Could it be possible that the SMA charges cricket australia a ridiculous amount of money to use AO on a public holiday ? Maybe due to the Phil Collins concert on there tonight? https://indaily.com.au/sport/cricket/2018/04/30/ad...
