Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

An emergency meeting between City of Port Adelaide Enfield, the State Government and Cedar Woods has failed to save Shed 26. Demolition to occur within the next few weeks. Sad to see a lack of effort by decision-makers to save the structure, even if significant work and investment would be required ...

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

The hourly rate for traffic controllers is pretty justified. They often are casual employees who have to alternate their sleep cycle, sometimes at the drop of a hat - especially the case with emergency works in regional locations. They are involved with creating and implementing traffic management p...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

are people already forgetting all the backlash the seaford line upgrade had to deal with? _ QnrGHgZI-g YouTube link is broken mate. But yes, do remember. Mostly about fears over the wetlands being ruined, can't remember if there was more around the Seaford area. Link works, just can't be watched wh...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

I see both sides of the story re: the trees. It does make Ovingham and Dudley Park stations look a little more aesthetically pleasing. The noise argument is worth further discussion, because electric trains are basically silent.

How cost effective is storing concrete sleepers he claims are for Brighton right at the Port Spur site, which is not an active railyard? Does Knoll think we’re all idiots? There is a smelly lack of transparency happening which FOI will no doubt reveal. Will the $40 million detailed costing (nice ro...

Some minor works have been done lately.

It's taken an eternity for any concrete progress though (pun intended).

Can't help but feel that the Libs have slowed an aspect of it down.

The tender was awarded and signed, and construction should have started by now.

Typical Liberal Government.

Many of us felt it was behind schedule even in the early stages of the project.

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

Not a surprising decision. But hugely disappointing though - this was meant to make Dock One and other developments viable.

What a terrible government.

[PRO] Re: Torrens Road Grade Separation

I just went through the crossing on the train and it's certainly an interesting equation. There are big factors affecting both road and rail: the gradient and nearby intersections for road, and leaving enough height to allow for double-stacked containers. I'm almost inclined to think we'll see a rai...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Here's a list of level crossings that should be removed sooner rather than later, based on a quick Google Maps scan. Removing these crossings will improve safety, efficiency, pedestrian movements, access and interchangeability. Where located close to a station, grade separation projects can include ...

Park Terrace in Salisbury is a more urgent level crossing need than Brighton Road in my opinion.
