Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Unless I missed an earlier announcement? It was announced yesterday by Adelaide Airport on their Facebook that the Vickers Vimy will be relocated from its longterm carpark into the new terminal extension, pictured below. Fantastic outcome! They had the artists impressions on display at the Vickers ...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Looks like the tram is being lumped in with the 'North-South' bus contract.

I doubt it's to prevent rock throwing - not sure there are many rocks around any of these intersections.

Hopefully they can at least be dressed with a bit of art, or better yet, turned into a green wall.
Maybe not rocks, but people could throw themselves from the bridges.

Looks like Croydon Kings are on the move.

They’re playing a farewell game at Polonia Reserve today and FFSA have done a decent tribute video for the club on Facebook.

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

You do not want 50km of road to look the same. It would be boring and makes it difficult to get a bearing of where you are. Every section should feel unique. It will keep drivers more alert and make for less people missing their turn off. Aren't the overhead signs how you get a bearing of where you...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Beyond fare hikes, privatisation and park-and-rides, it appears the Liberals have no plans for public transport infrastructure in this term with the possible exception of an O-Bahn 'extension' to Golden Grove (Gawler electrification is an ongoing project and doesn't count). Also no sign of them com...

Re: Commonwealth Games in Adelaide

I really hope so. Regardless of the sometimes cited second-rate nature of the event compared to the Olympics it will be a great boost to the international reputation of Adelaide and should see a nice influx of visitors over the two week period it is running. Luckily we have a few hotels coming on l...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

I'm sure it's just a little bit of sensationalism from NewsCorp, although admittedly now repeated across the ABC and InDaily . There'd be protests of a scale we haven't seen for decades if the Thebby seriously came under threat. That alone probably guarantees a tunnel through the area concerned. Th...
