Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Islington is a good example of virtually zero access, and provides a strong case against approval of the Kaufland supermarket development that was unfortunately recently approved for the site. Yes, Islington should be a major interchange with Regency Rd. Freight trains on the standard gauge track o...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

Proposals for a hotel and second office tower at the $600 million Festival Plaza redevelopment have been rejected by the State Government during another revision of long-awaited final plans for the prime CBD site. In drawn-out negotiations, former Liberal major projects tsar Roger Cook has quit a S...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

Kings Road is terrible. The Parafield crossing needs to be grade separated ASAP. But of course its the usual safe Labor seat issue, which means that it won't be an election issue. The crossing actually is the border of Spence and Makin federally. It needs to be 2 lanes in either direction for the e...

Buckland Park has been given a three-year extension.

Seriously. Just can it already.
Might as well accept that it will go ahead, they'll keep getting extensions until housing prices are at a level they want

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

Once the northern interchange is finished, what will be the way to get from Port Wakefield Road northbound onto the Northern Expressway? Is it going to require turning left at Waterloo Corner Road then onto the NC from there, or will there be a final onramp I have missed seeing? Is there any benefi...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Nobody would object to putting solar panels on the roof of their water treatment plant and tanks. But replacing forest with solar panels is another matter, especially as there are so many other places they could go. Thinking a bit more about it, I wonder whether SA Water's real objective is to stop...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

replanting it with native vegetation would be better for the local ecosystem anyway Agree, however I was just pointing out the irony of replacing trees with a solar plant, when the whole idea of these solar plants is to reduce co2 in the atmosphere, a task the trees were doing naturally anyway. If ...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

So now we are proposing to cut down trees, which absorb co2 and cool the surrounding air, in order to put in a solar farm, which will act as a heat island increasing local temperature, in order to help prevent co2 being generated elsewhere in the generation system to cool the atmosphere elsewhere? ...

Whatever they do, it's crucial it's at least 3x3 lanes. We already made the mistake decades ago with not implementing the MATS plan, let's not repeat history by not future proofing this motorway. Not implementing the MATS plan was definitely not a mistake, I"m pretty sure the residents of Hindmarsh...
