Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Found this in a magazine I picked up from World Routes, adds something to the "where next" conversation! I'm not sure what the reason is for quite different layout of the two graphs.

Re: Glenelg Ferry & Cruise ship terminal

Does that have cruise ships visit? How do semi trailers fit to resupply, and busses to collect/deliver the passengers and their luggage? It looks very crowded for a practical terminal.

[SWP] Re: Penny Place | 78m | 24 levels | Apartments

During that time, they are SA residents working in SA, and various laws would require them to have SA drivers licenses and electoral enrolments. I think that makes them "South Australians". What laws would those be exactly? Why would they need South Australian drivers licenses? You can vote at any ...

That's a very insular perspective. The build should be awarded to whoever puts in the best quote. What should happen doesn't always happen. I am sure that you heard of 'preferred tenderers', where other builders essentially don't even get a leg in. I didn't even see this project go out to tender an...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

I have just received an e-mail from Adelaide Airport to say they have finally fixed the webcam. I have checked it out and it is now working correctly-finally. With a refresh of the image very minute, what's the point? Its 2019, put up a proper camera that live streams. Might that have privacy or se...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Labor will announce this weekend that they will take back any tram or train services that are outsourced by the Liberals if they are elected at the 2022 state election. I believe the option of taking back the bus contracts will be explored too. Good news for those of us who have concluded that ther...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Handrails don’t look too bad. They will be replaced in coming weeks with the same large screens found on the other bridges. When driving on it at the moment I am taking in the view. Dont see why the bridge would need throw screens as it is not designed for pedestrian access. Yes you could lob an ap...

Re: Glenelg Ferry & Cruise ship terminal

The first Glenelg Jetty was 381 metres long with a T-head and wooden lighthouse. This section was destroyed by fire in 1873. In 1906 a three-storey pavilion was added at the end of the jetty and railway tracks were laid along its length to service coastal shipping. The aquarium was built in 1929, s...

Re: Glenelg Ferry & Cruise ship terminal

lol Adelaide and damn grass :P How deep is the water at the end of the jetty? Had a look at the ships coming in this cruise season, up to around 8~m draught at most. Extend a new more solid 'pier' further out then the current jetty, slap a tram line on it? :banana: I'm pretty sure that by the time ...

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

Are they eliminating the right turn from Kings road onto PWR? Not sure where you mean, kings road and port Wakefield road dont intersect. Doesn't Bolivar road end at the roundabout with kings road the new intersecting road? That's how I understood the plans to do that roundabout too. However the ro...

Looks like the Darlington road will be called The Southern Expressway (not the North South Motorway) Permanent overhead signage has now been installed at the ayliffes road entrance. Makes sense given it's not connected to any other parts of NSM, nor will it be for at least some years to come. Also ...

So what i read is there will be a signalised intersection at Kings Road and at Hodgson Road, that'll be close to one another
It looks like it will be about 350 metres.
