[U/C] Re: 203 North Terrace | 119m | 35 levels | Student Accom

People are actually comparing a building in Perth that at least looks like it was designed in the last 20 years to a building here that looks like it was designed 50 years ago and they've tried to modernize it with fins on the sides?

Re: (VIS) Hungry Jack's Carpark

As much as it was a travesty the Grand Central Hotel was knocked down, it is now well and truly in the past and it's time to move on. Other than being an architectural delight, what other significance did the GCH building have?. Building a replica will just end up looking tacky. Just like the Centr...

Re: (VIS) Hungry Jack's Carpark

Would the car park structure be strong enough to support building on top of it?

[COM] Re: M2 Northern Connector | 15.5km | $867m

I remember seeing the LED line markings at the SEXY/Panaltinga Rd junction at Old Reynella. Worked really well. This would be a great solution for the M2. Unfortunately unlikely to happen as SA is… well… SA. How long where the M2 lights on the Superway on for??? Minutes? What M2 lights? When the So...

They're refurbishing it, from the carpets to the seats to the front shop to the candy bar.

[COM] Re: M2 Northern Connector | 15.5km | $867m

So, how about a test of those new line markings in the rain? During sunny/cloudy conditions when the roads wet? They trialled those LED lights on the markings, was it in the hills?...why can't that be a regular feature on our roads? That would surely help especially during wet conditions or when vi...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide City Council

I would rather question why The Advertiser is happy to commit journalists to this trash and not to more newsworthy stories. Probably a newsdrop... or maybe trash stories about the City Council get lots of clicks? How about reporting what's happening with the Riverbank to Market Link? Or the North T...

[U/C] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

They are clearly morons, or incompetent. I wonder if they knew at the time they built the new roof, that little over 12 months after, they would be demolishing the stands? Surely, the project would have a better result with a complete re-design? The mind boggles. Between our State Government and th...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

Magill and Portrush being upgraded at a cost of 98 million for a few extra lanes, property acquisitions NO over or under passes ????? what the hell... Always laugh when people complain about the prices of these projects, like how would you even know what a certain infrastructure project should cost...
