Re: Should the O-Bahn be converted to light rail?

I would be disappointed for this to happen. What makes the O-bahn so great is because it moves more people per hour than equivalent light rail or heavy rail and it's fast (Modbury to Hackney in 15 minutes). However, the track is ageing and will need replacement soon. Speed limits have been reduced i...

Re: Moving the airport to a less populated area

I imagine it will be moved out north, possibly to the site of the raaf base. But not for at least another 50 years given all the recent investment at the current site.

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

All the places you've named have been built on haven't they I at no point have suggested the parklands should be natural fields. They should be public space that offer South Australians things that the typically market driven private businesses could not offer. It is not just roads for normal busin...

[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...
