Port Augusta Power Stations and Leigh Creek coal mine expected to close by 2018 costing about 440-jobs

Port-augusta-power-stations-and-leigh-creek-coal-mine-expected-to-close-by-2018-costing-about-440-jobs Backlash forces Government to change plans for controversial O-Bahn extension project Sheradyn Holderhead and Anthony Templeton The Advertiser June 10, 2015 Adelaide's O-Bahn redevelopment fly through - New look •See what was in the old O-Bahn tunnel plan here • Council refuses to endorse O-Bahn tunnel • BusinessSA wants O-Bahn plan scrapped RYMILL Park has been saved and Rundle Rd retained after the State Government backed down on the most controversial aspects of its $160 million O-Bahn extension. Changes to the O-Bahn extension — as first revealed exclusively in The Advertiser today — include retaining Rundle Rd in its current form, extending the underground component of the bus tunnel so it surfaces 140m closer to Grenfell St, creating an extra 50 car parks on East Tce and Rundle Rd, and removing the barrier between the bus tunnels to reduce the footprint. This follows yesterday’s confirmation that a new city school will be established around a UniSA building on Frome Rd, as first revealed by The Advertiser last month, instead of on the old Royal Adelaide Hospital site as promised. Sources say the O-Bahn changes will be considered a win for residents, community and business leaders who campaigned strongly against a proposal they said would “butcher” the popular park. Transport Minister Stephen Mullighan said the State Government made changes to the O-Bahn project to reduce its impact on Rymill Park and the East End.
