Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Referring to today IndDaily article... and Heapsgood post Does this route make sense? Magill road is too narrow for tram and road traffic (for Australian perception) and that will create a lot of opposition... preferred-route-1100x329.jpg With this option eventually in the future we would have both...

Just had a thought. I feel the space in front of the Intercontinental can be better used.

How about we extend and continue the facade of Adelaide Railway Station west?
Interesting thought for another thread?

There should of been land put aside in the Bowden area for a depot
Would have saved on remediation costs, but again, too prime a site.

Adelaide airport would probably be a good location if we do get a line there first.

Too prime a site. Better suited for redev.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I wonder how many trams Glengowrie is capable of holding - must be reaching the limit. Not many tracks AFAIK. ADELAIDE - TOWARDS A GREATER CITY SKYLINE Which brings us to the question of where would they stable a larger fleet of trams if the extensions to the suburbs ever happened. Any ideas? I thi...

Re: News & Discussion: Metropolitan Developments

I would suggest that if a business situated on a busy street like Jetty Road with plenty of pedestrian activity cannot survive if 30 of the several hundred car parks in the immediate vicinity are removed then they are not suited to the environment in which they are trying to trade and should move t...

Re: Fleurieu Fast Rail

Start with Adelaide to Pt August/Wyalla.
Existing pretty straight corridor.
Look to the hills later once we've found our regional rail feet.

Travelling along Goodwood Rd towards the city today I noticed a small section of tram track rail has been exposed with the resurfacing work.

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

Without wanting to sound like a parklands nutter, I really hope they are very vigilant on the landscaping at the entrance to the tunnel at the city end. The tunnel entry is VERY prominent in these photos. Not quite sure why the roadway needs to widen out so significantly once out of the tunnel? Als...

Re: U/C: Electrification & Upgrade of the Adelaide Rail Network

The 1km spur line has been designed to allow the hundreds of people who will soon be living at Dock One to commute to and from work. I wonder if anyone has thought that these people might work shifts at Osborne building offshore patrol vessels, frigates and submarines, not nine-five in Adelaide Cit...

Heard today that later in the year when the O-Bahn tunnel opens that the Clarendon Street Bus terminus(layover area) will close as the University intends to build on that site. There will be a new set down bus stop opposite,before buses terminate at a yet to be advised location!
Awesome. Source?
