Yep. The express way is good. It takes me about half an hour to get from one end of Marion road to the other, let alone into the cbd. If there was no other traffic and no traffic lights you might just do it. Unfortunately Adelaide always seems to have bad traffic and/or road works.
Having had my baby at flinders not long ago I know it can take half an hour to get there from the Anzac highway on a bad traffic day.
Is a mummy!
Oh please.......if it's not someone else espousing their religious and political beliefs on the wrong forum.
Do not assume to know me your assumptions are wrong and I do not need a lecture on your beliefs. This forum is not the appropriate place for them and you are fortunate your personal attacks have not been removed and your membership suspended if you continue to encite an argument.

Oh come on on now Notpom, you are cracking me up.
As for your opinions - you are "telling us / ramming it down our throats" as though you are preaching.
I can guess you are enjoying the attention - perhaps not getting any elsewhere - if you were in a pub I reckon there would be a "dead Zone" around you!!

Personally I love being within easy reach of the city - I love the Central Market, the Botanic Gardens, being able to get to the Oval easily, the Rhino Rooms, Rundle Mall at Christmas Time, the Tour Downunder in January, Fringe Shows and Festival Shows during Mad March, the Clipsal, the theatre, not to mention the work and performance opportunities for my teenagers. Adelaide has plenty of culture and sports and music if you know where to look, although often an interstater such as yourself @notpom might not be in on the local secrets!
We were just saying at work today how Adelaide being a sleepy little backwater can have a lot of advantages insofar as I guess it would not be on the publicity radars of those who wish to get worldwide coverage for their cause. Long may that last!

Up until 2000 and even slightly longer Sydney's seaside suburb of Bellevue Hill has had slightly depressed property prices. On average it was 20-30% cheaper than neighbouring areas.
I bet you do not know reason for that. It was actually because in 1942 japanese submarine fired 10 rounds across eastern suburbs, one of which has actually exploded.
Wouldn't want to live anywhere but within striking distance of CBD. Can walk in or cycle easily. Also close to the Parade. Like to walk out for a meal, cinema, theatre, fringe, WOMAD even to the Oval. Have a house in the Hills where we used to live. We rent it out as too remote for us now. We like the buzz. We are in our 50 s.
SUPPLY AND DEMAND There is a reason it is more expensive to live nearer the City.
