Have we heard boo from infrastructure SA? Aren't they looking at all of this?

I wonder how much is tied up in the potential commonwealth games bid, we will get Feds cash for that.
They have a website here: https://infrastructure.sa.gov.au/

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Interesting that the render no longer shows a tram line. I'm pretty sure that the covered walkway between the hotel and the terminal is where the tram terminus was in previous renders... That render is not from the master plan (because it hasn't been released yet), but from the existing internation...

I doubt it. There was a puff piece in The Advertiser the other day about this development.

Re: Oaklands Crossing | $174m

Totally agree too. Not sure why they haven’t done this already?! Well, they kind of have. The Tonsley Line, running at a 30 minute frequency, allows every second Seaford train to run express between Woodlands Park and Adelaide. This has not rolled out to all Seaford Line services as there is not en...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Remove the 222 services. Change the 224 to run to and from the city via Port Wakefield Road. Restore the 224 (city). Change the 228F to 228. Extend 225M to Gepps Cross via Mawson Lakes Boulevard, extend 229 (feeder) to Gepps Cross (25). Maintain the 224X and 228X but change 225F/X, 229F/X to 225 an...

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

The Federal Libs have now promised a total of 2.7b and Federal Labor only 1.2b. The State Libs will match the 2.7b with a loan from the taxpayers of SA giving a total of 5.4b. This should be enough to complete this corridor hopefully. It will be interesting to see if Federal Labor will also make th...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

Ok so where are the figures that say that public transport usage has declined in the last 3 years? There has been no release of theses numbers (as far as I have noticed....) Depends how you look at it. Overall usage has increased, but bus patronage has decreased. 2015-16: Bus 41.104m Tram 8.885m Tr...

Re: Oaklands Crossing | $174m

Could not agree more. Radical consolidation of stations, in better locations would enable many more of these modern stations and actually attract many new riders, instead of pandering to a handful of people at each little suburban stop now. I will never not wonder why both Emerson and Clarence Park...

The contractor. I am sorry but I don't accept that argument. DPTI shouldn't be contracting work out to a business that isn't professional. They will now need to remove all of the shortcrete causing major delays to the project. Royal Adelaide Hospital type problems all over again. The businesses inv...

Another stuff up by the state government, honestly DPTI is full of idiots.
Isn't this a design and construct project, so how is this a "stuff up" by DPTI?
Who is responsible for it then ?
The contractor.
