Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

If they shut the borders, would freight/semi deliveries & flights ie cargo in/out of SA then stop? Or would you expect this to be exempt? Does anyone know the value of how much we import vs export (interstate and overseas) as a state? Would rail then be the alternative in/out of SA?

Re: Deregulation of Shop Trading Hours

They are also saying some supplies (ie toilet paper) are going straight from the factories to the shops & not even bothering going to the distribution centres.

Re: Magill/Portrush Road Intersection Upgrade | $98m

One thing to consider is the owners originally chose to buy on a main road in the first place. The value of their home is naturally quite a bit less than if their same house was located a few streets back. They may be getting offered fair value for their home/property now but when they go into the m...

You would assume they have signed a building contract and are committed to continue. Hopefully by the time its finished [1.5 years?] things would be different/better.

Yes and this 10.5 km section to take a decade...1km per year on average...and still years for the design! I mean just do something, anything so people can see it finished within their lifetime.

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

Fair point if our business plans or projects aren't shovel ready anyway for the funding. But my point is if we had a bigger population & State revenue we wouldn't have to rely on business plans/Federal funds/handouts as much in the first place. Even with the cost/benefit analysis of each project we ...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

While I totally agree and your points about our roads etc are valid, you also need to consider that you are comparing us with a population 4x our size and with Govt [State and Federal] revenue and funding maybe 10x what we get. So if our state had say an extra $5 billion every year [as an example], ...

Quite ironic there won’t be any spectators/events to hinder/delay the construction.

[APP] Re: Peregrine HQ | 38m | 8 levels | Kensington

I'm wondering if the helipad was instead for a building in the Adelaide CBD if it would get approved? In Melb & Sydney there are probably CEOs that take helicopters to work/home everyday. Is there any buildings here in our CBD with helipads [apart for the NRAH]?

Flopo, the new casino hotel will def. have a pool. From their website, “Adelaide's most luxurious hotel, a wellness centre including day spa, pool and gym as well as additional signature restaurants and bars.”

How much was the fare? I'm pretty sure flights are cheaper [as well as far quicker] also, right?

Just curious on thoughts of the potential future expansion in say 10-20 years? Do we expect Old Noarlunga to Aldinga & McLaren Vale and the other way from Gawler to the Barossa? The McLaren Vale to Barossa freeway/wine trail?

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

Yes we can all agree that the proposals may be predictable, un-inspiring, bland, generic & its a missed opportunity for the last piece of waterfront blah blah blah. However what is far harder is giving actual examples of alternative buildings or developments that they would prefer here. Docklands is...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

I totally agree. It possibly also says a lot that the highest bidder (maybe only bidder!) was a storage company. Maybe a combination of the banks new credit policies, economic times and the developers (esp. Chinese) putting the cue in the rack?
