[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

people must be assured that 100% of the funds raised will go directly to funding these key game-changing projects. /\ /\ This. But can we trust them? You also have the issue that these rules can over time result in no net increase in available funds, as other funding that would have gone towards th...

Everyone on here is blowing loads about this development and Realm, but quite frankly neither of them are likely to be master pieces. At a $100 million each they're both being built on an opal tower budget. Yeah they aren't masterpieces, but they will be establishing a new baseline for city apartme...

The render in that article mentions a re-design. I haven’t seen this whole thread, but I don’t think I’ve seen this. The story of the redesign was mentioned in October last year and was to counter wind-loads according to the architect. Before (left) and After (right) below: https://uploads.tapatalk...

Re: SA Economy

Sydney and Melbs are having a much needed correction, there's absolutely no logical reason Sydney for instance, should be double the price of Adelaide. It's been investors fuelling those prices, now they're spooked and looking elsewhere for better value. Hobart has just had a big run, now it's prob...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

I'm hoping that in the not too distant future we have an over-supply of wind/solar combined with storage that means we can rely on it for 100% of generation along with having excess to sell interstate. Thats today......I dont just mean Tuesday Feb 12, I mean "the current time in South Australian hi...

Re: News & Discussion : New Restaurants, Bars & Night Clubs

Anyone know what's happening with the Ed Castle? Since closing last year it has had a for sale sign up. Today the front balcony is surrounded by scaffolding. Update to this, the balcony is now mostly dismantled. Since the rest of the building seems untouched I hope this is a sign they are making it...

The South Australian government has received 50 proposals for energy storage options. Hoping pumped hydro wins big amongst the grant money... And just out of interest, it is entirely possible to power South Australia by wind this afternoon Tuesday Feb 12 but AMEO (Australian Energy Market Operator)...

Rather than a tunnel I think you keep Grote/Wakefield open but have a large pedestrian overpass as part of the landscaping of the square.

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

A city entry and exit, and an airport road enter and exit, is a must , as is an eventual connection point to Princes Highway (I still like the MATS plans idea of having the Princes highway link up to the motorway via the foothills). I think that would be dealt with by a tunnel entrance/exit at Anza...

I want King William Street turned into a two way road on the east of the square, with the western side turned into part of the square. With the upcoming Central Market renovation it would allow it to be tied together really well.

CBD rail tunnel first. Please and thank you. I'm a big fan of the idea of a CBD rail tunnel, but apart from containing the word tunnel they are entirely different projects with entirely different purposes. To be honest a South Road tunnel is probably the best thing that could happen in building mom...

If the whole idea of this non stop roads are to move trucks why are we overbuilding it? It only needs to be dual lane tunnel/trench/viaduct restricted to trucks only. And besides many trucks I have seen use Portrush Road to get to and from port/freeway. A simple tunnel for trucks only between Marde...

Tunnel the lot
I disagree. If a tunnel is going to happen then a two part tunnel that allows people to get on/off seems more useful. Especially because it would allow options for an eventual Anzac Highway/West Tce upgrade directly connecting the city to the motorway.

Re: World-class wine and empty beaches: Why the Fleurieu peninsula is Australia's best kept secret

Not sure where this should go, but a nice article from the UK https://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/oceania/australia/south-australia/articles/fleurieu-peninsula-vineyards-beaches-things-to-do-see/ Sneaky ad, a few seconds after sitting on that page it redirected to a NSW tourism ad. :lol:
