Re: News & Discussion: Laneway Revitalisation Projects

Re: U/C: Tonsley Park Redevelopment | $1b

If they believe that local government is the best way of carrying those concerns, then that is perfectly OK. I don't believe the Marion DAP has the...

Re: U/C: Tonsley Park Redevelopment | $1b

They are doing what local governments do, looking out for their existing residents. They are probably envisioning a pyramid approach, where the Flinders building is the top of the pyramid and the height steps down from there. You might think it's petty, but this is what local residents are talking a...

Will this just be on the North Terrace side or all around the building?

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

Norm, this isn't the 1950s anymore where every John, Dick and Larry stops for a chat with the bus driver and sends a Christmas card to his family. People just want to get from A to B. The driver's job is to do just exactly that. I think a simple Hi when you get on and Thank you when exiting is enou...

The tunnel is fantastic! Was great walking through it.

Surprised to see so many people validating their tickets on the free O-Bahn buses to and from the City though.
Most of them were wearing headphones, which is just rude. They don't greet and acknowledge the driver.

Re: News & Discussion: Buses

Well if the Adelaide City Council didn't waste money on changing the Frome Street bike lane. North Terrace has lots of buses , Currie/Grenfell Street has lots of buses, Pirie Street/Waymouth Road could be used for east west buses but you'll have to still get back onto West Terrace or Currie Street,...

Re: Move Government House to former LeCornu NrthAdel site

I am saddened to hear you refer to Hieu Van Le as "the useless governor general" (sic). He is actually a man to be admired, and has probably achieved more than you or I ever will, though you may think that the role (which is actually Governor, not Governor General) is no longer required. A little t...
