The new solar regulations address 2 problems, one present now and one future. The new inverter regulations are aimed at increasing the strength of small solar to stay c...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Grenfell/Currie should be a transit mall. 3 lanes in each direction......inside lane can be light rail, footpath lane can be bus stops, middle lane will be for buses, taxis and delivery vehicles only. Building a tunnel under Grenfell/Currie is extremely expensive and unnecessary.......regular car tr...

[U/C] Re: 104-106 Currie Street | 117m | 33lvl | Sofitel Hotel

And even then, the only demand for hotel rooms are those of repatriation flights which is still government money? (Correct me if I'm wrong). If the real estate market can pick itself up again, then there might be some hope that those projects financed but not yet U/C could be reimagined as apartmen...

I doubt there is a lot of interchange between the train line and bus passengers along Brighton Road.....happy to be corrected if someone can provide some s...
