Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

I was thinking about the funicular railways in Pittsburgh in the USA. I suspect Flinders is not steep enough for exactly that solution.

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

I could be wrong here, but it seems to me that the people who attend soccer matches at Hindmarsh have no problem with the stadium or it's location, but the people who don't attend soccer matches think we would be better off spending megadollars and building a multi-sport venue at what they consider ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

As for lower branch frequency, why would it be less than now? You could simply replace one Grange tram for one Grange train on the time table. I would also re-route the line around the golf course instead of through it, to make it more accessible (and useful) to more local residents. The more usefu...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

the overpass, i don't know. but why wouldn't you just have done it with 2 lanes? Because this is the team that builds one-way freeways, remember :banana: Or, There really is no justification for a full highway interchange that would only see traffic on a handful of days every year Quite true, but I...

Ah well, better ScoMo then a grubby sexual predator union hack like Shorten.

Re: The Federal Politics Thread

The Greens leader was yelling like a lunatic in the senate that the Liberals should be ashamed of themselves. Far from sounding like a lunatic, this was the best speech I've heard in Parliament in a long time. Faithfully echoed the feelings of the bulk of Australians. Obviously not yours, though. T...

I'm actually sad to see that façade go. It was from the days when brickwork was arty as well as functional, there are not that many examples of it left :( Same. I like this development and am looking forward to seeing it progress, but am also a bit sad to see the old one go. There are still a few g...
