Re: News & Discussion: National Broadband Network

Thank you, Liberal Party! I am on the Yorke Peninsula, and I am in Telstra Only Territory like almost all of regional australia. Looking forward to my 25Mb FTTN connection on my copper line. Hurry up! I'm sick of weather sensitive connection speeds! At best, I can get an 8Mb connection at best. Fort...

Re: News & Discussion: Trains

With close proximity to Adelaide High School and Temple Christian College, closing Mile End would be a mistake. Although it has limited services now, selected Noarlunga/Seaford service should stop there like Keswick to cater for the peak traffic, ie to school/work in the morning and ditto in the arv...

[COM] Re: SWP: Goodwood Junction Rail Underpass | $110m

Mile End does get a fair bit if patronage from Temple Christian College and Adelaide High School. I attended a training session up the west end of Currie St, and walked from Mile End rather than go into ARS then catch the tram back.

Perhaps they'll open their own version of Dazzleland!

Re: News & Discussion: MetroCard System

Wonder how long for? Given Amex fees are typically 3% of a sale total, and assume a 10% margin on Metrocard recharges, a $30 recharge will not net any margin for the retailer.

Re: ## General Public Transport thread

Which begs the question, what happened to the sump removers that were supposed to also assist in protecting the obahn?

Re: Public transport smartcard system

I'm still amazed at how well the government is handling the metrocard project.
Oh, bollocks. Please tell me you were touching something wooden when you posted that? If you weren't, it's doomed!

Re: Adelaide Station to close for a month

Bowden makes the most amount of sense for the western passengers. Personally, I'd put a set of points on the western side of bowden, and do what they were doing in the first closure between Adelaide and Mawson Lakes, save the train traversing Park Terrace, except when it has to run back to Dry Creek...

Re: Rail Line to Flinders Uni

Looking at it, I'd be inclined to scope out the following items as part of the project. - Removal of Ascot Park from Noarlunga to the new line, station at Daws Rd. - Hybrid Tram/Train & Train Platform at Woodlands Park, ie High/Low Level - Removal of Edwardstown, Emerson, and Clarence Park High Leve...

Re: Rail Line to Flinders Uni

Looking at it, I'd also look at the location of the stations along the Tonsley Line. Given that you would have tram trains, it would be possible for them to go sailing past stops like the current trams. I'd be proposing a stop at Daws Rd, Celtic Avenue, Alawoona Rd. Mind you spacing could adjust to ...
