Summary
The longstanding Adelaide Metro Currie Street infocentre will soon close its doors to make way for a 39-storey hotel that has been approved, but no start date has been announced.The State Government said this morning the infocentre, on the corner of Currie and King William streets, will close its doors on Friday, September 13.Transport Minister Stephan Knoll said the lease on the office, which provides public transport tickets and information, expires on September 30 and wasn’t worth extending.“The lease at the Currie Street location is soon to expire and there’s development approval to turn that site into a high rise hotel,” he said.Six staff currently working at the site will be redeployed, his office said.Approved by the State Commission Assessment Panel last year, plans for the proposed 132m building reportedly included 266 hotel rooms, 78 apartments, two restaurants, a bar and retail space.Knoll said Currie St infocentre customers could obtain the same service with longer opening hours at the Adelaide Railway Station centre, various retail outlets or online.“Over the past 12 months, 50% of financial transactions at the Adelaide Metro Currie Street InfoCentre have been completed through the self-serve vending machines,” he said.“Approximately 85% of all transactions that occur at the Currie Street InfoCentre can be done online, at one of over 30 MetroCard agents in the CBD, or through the vending machines or InfoLine.“The department will undertake an education campaign to encourage customers to make use of Adelaide Metro’s improved digital service.“In many instances, there’s no need for people to wait in line – they can save themselves time and conduct these transactions online, over the phone or at an agent.”(Source: InDaily).
