[U/C] Re: Westfield Tea Tree Plaza (Extension)

Slice of Brooklyn has closed down, according to their social media accounts COVID up to its old tricks again I suppose... Don't think so - they traded through COVID, and the closure was sudden. Some rumours circulating that it may have been a dispute with centre management that resulted in the clos...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

Anyone else feel that the signage around the Salisbury Highway/Port Expressway junctions really needs some work? The signs saying which lane does what appear far too late and it's common to see cars suddenly crossing multiple lanes of traffic as they realise at the last moment they need to be on the...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

It also encourages walking to local destinations as taking a car may require taking a much longer path to reach your destination. Not with more modern cul-de-sacs it doesn't. Historically there were more alleyways that allowed cutting through, but due to security concerns many have closed over year...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

Once lines are lost they are much more expensive or outright impossible to bring back (see the example given above of the old line being cut for road works). It should be a given that a state which has wine and produce as so much of our national and international identity has an active train line ru...

Spotted by Facebook member, has this render been posted before?
Looks 23 stories, but also looking more closely at the render it's clearly a very quick and dirty sketch, so would expect plenty of changes to come.

I don't mind the signage either having seen it in person now. It stands out but that's kind of the point.

At least it's not another rusting POLITES sign.

May I suggest writing a letter to the Advertiser complaining that the CBD of our capital city isn't a motorway?

The council were chopping down the mature plane trees in front of this site this morning :shock: If it's for access, that's crazy! This site is huge, surely they could have arranged egress to keep the trees. Probably planned all along, the renders feature no trees on the street in front of it.

Re: News & Discussion: Cycling

Why have stupid bike lanes which drive everyone crazy, we need better roads for cars, trains and trams. Money can spent a lot better investing in this, roads are for cars not Tour De France wannabes Building better cycling infrastructure is actually a lot more cost effective than building infrastru...

Application was lodged on the 23rd December for stage 1 - demolition so looks like this one is definitely going ahead and sooner rather than later although no tenants have closed up yet from what I can tell.

Oh shutup. Everyone is still learning about how to navigate COVID. There's bound to be some mistakes along the way, and we can only learn from them.
