[COM] Re: Torrens Junction Underpass

I lived next to the line during the saga. From memory, i'm pretty sure the biggest concern was about the potential for anti-social activity generated from an elevated Croydon station.

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

As a resident, it's curious that the trucks seem to start up late afternoon and run until early morning.. I'm getting a lot of bass from the trucks coming through my window now at 1230am..On a side note, there were no trucks running during the day :shock:

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Part of the problem on the Port Line is the large number of stops. That means heavy rail is just too slow. It is also fiendishly expensive compared to light rail or trams. Of course, light rail is also slow in the Australian context. However, that's something that could be corrected by operational ...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I'm with PAFC - I won't be ditching public transport, but as a user of the OH line I will be choosing the bus on Port Road over the tram. I'm all for trams in inner Adelaide (city loop, Norwood, Magill etc) but this vision isn't the right fit and we know this because it takes 40+ minutes from Adelai...

The site is just outside my front door :) On Sunday, railway sleepers were delivered and they were laying ballast on the northern side of the track for the diverted railway. I'll get some photos.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I support a city loop 100% though fyi - A great way to optimize city movements. For medium to long distance urban public transport the trams will likely be :toilet:

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I used to think the trams were a neat idea but the more I look into it I just think they are a colossal waste of coin, mainly on the basis that they won't improve on existing travel times. The outer harbor line being the perfect example - OK, the 75 minute figure seems to be ripped out of nowhere ye...

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

After spending 6 months in Europe and experiencing how rail transport works here, I have to say that the state of rail transport in Adelaide is absolutely piss poor!

My friend lives on Euston tce near Queen st and we've talked a lot about the costs + benefits of the rail overpass. Queen st overpass no doubt be would be fugly as (limit sunlight and ruin the visual aesthetics), but we strongly doubt it would cause a disconnect to Day tce - you've still got to go t...

Re: [ City Central ] Masterplan Thread

So, if you were to come home this evening to find that someone unknown had graffiti'd your house, you would be cool with that? Who gets to decide whether it looks good or not? That's a crappy example. Bottom line: graffiti sub-culture is one of the things that makes society more interesting and vis...
