Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Was travelling city-bound on the Gawler Line from Salisbury station this afternoon around 1:30. Train was already pretty full with BBL-goers when I got on and became progressively more full until we reached Mawson Lakes and the masses of BBL-goers on the platform piled in. All available space was f...

Re: Petrol Station Owners

I recall a while ago that there was plan that On The Run wanted to build service station at the former Go Kart track site on the corner of Waterloo Corner Road and Port Wakefield Highway . Also if I may add as cars come more fuel efficient or more and more people start to transition to hybrids and ...

Re: Harris Scarfe has gone broke

Went to have a pick at the Rundle Mall carcass on Sunday.

In true Harris Scarfe form, their closing down clearance sale is essentially the same discounts they normally offer being passed off as closing down discounts.

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

While it's fantastic that these minor upgrades have been enough to attact an ATP event back to Adelaide, and a WTA event to Adelaide for the first time (and a fairly stacked WTA event in terms of talent too), Memorial Drive is also lucky that it's sandwiched between a stadium with spare facilities a...

[COM] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

Looks like the next traffic switch will take place over the next week. When the Superway reopens the Port River Expressway closes for a week or so. I’m assuming this is so the expressway can be realigned.

Uni Qlo on level 1, and Timezone on level 2 could work

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

The Harris Scarfe space would be perfect for Uni Qlo. Whether they take up 1 or 2 floors though - I think 1 floor would be sufficent for them in comparison to their other stores. Would any major chain be game enough to take up space on the first floor in Rundle Mall anymore? Uni Qlo have success wi...

A bad crash on the closed Superway https://www.facebook.com/10NewsAdl/videos/964612640591540/ How can people be that dumb and still breathe? It's been heavily advertised on social media and the visual display boards for the past week or so that the Superway will be closed. Also, how can you complet...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

If the privatisation brings genuine improvements and efficiencies, then it might be a good thing. I'm curious to see what their offers would be and what improvements they are proposing. Hopefully an improvement in operations staff too. The guys manning the ticket barriers at Salisbury are more of a...

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Going off topic here, but what future does Titanium arena have now that the 36ers aren't using it ? I reckon once the Lightning find a smaller home (be it Priceline Stadium, or one of the district courts), then TSA will quickly be sold to either Influencers or Edge or be sold for housing. I think I...

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Am I the only one that doesn't particularly like the idea of turning 500m on each side of our main boulevard into the city into an ode to (spectator) sport, filled with stadiums? Also, is the church at Hindmarsh that much of an impediment? We've lost things of far greater heritage value, for far le...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

First time I saw a movie there, an undesirable managed to scrounge up enough for a ticket. Management couldn't not sell him one (he was undesirable, but hadn't done anything wrong), but advised us if they were to act up during the movie let them know and they'd evict them immediately. Thankfully we...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

The PalaceNova is always busy and was recently expanded. The reason G U Film house is not successful in my opinion, is its undesirable location. The cinemas themselves are probably the best in Adelaide in terms of quality, yet you literally have to walk past strip clubs and through shisha bars to g...
