Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Any thoughts on amalgamating the tram and train threads, as they often seem to "morph" into each others issues? I mean even the government had a go at morphing OH from heavy to light rail. It makes it hard to discuss over duplicate threads. Just call it Metro Rail heavy/light. Yeah why not a separa...

The distance between Adelaidean and proposed student building is not far :) http://www.sensational-adelaide.com/forum/download/file.php?id=7117 Maybe when the two buildings are finished the residents could blow kisses to each other (or if you had noisy neighbours have stereo "loudness" contests acr...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Another idea is for buses from North East Rd to use the new O-Bahn tunnel, rather than driving through North Adelaide.
Melbourne Street needs to be serviced by public transport (ie buses).....it is meant to a "destination street", mainly for food...or it was....

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Council pipedreams......where are some numbers from the council? At least a guestimate of the number of people to use the new service? The DPTI would have the true numbers of people commuting from the inner north to the inner east via Metrocard/Metroticket validations. I doubt this justifies a new b...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Its the last day of the "festive season" bus timetable........I think it probably does reflect patronage levels...50%(?) of the cbd workers in the city this week?

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Governments should be working on eliminating some tramway level crossings with tram overpass or underpass, for example Greenhill Road, Goodwood Road, Marion Road, Cross Road. Marion and Cross Road intersections should be done at the same time. Traffic along Marion road is continually interrupted by...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

The Odeon Star cinema is just up the road in Semaphore, and Arndale and West Lakes are an easy drive...... Unfortunately I don't see a great chance of new cinemas in the Port unless there is a huge increase in population and that's a pity because movie theatres would improve the Port as a "destinati...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Saw on a travel show the tram system in Bordeaux without overhead wires. If this technology exists, why are we still persisting with overhead? Is it a costlier system does anyone know? Not only is it more expensive, it is also proprietary technology....you can only run one brand of trams across the...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Bus cuts are heavily focused on outer northern and southern suburbs....no surprises there (car dominated low density suburbia with few "destinations" apart from shopping centres) Whilst I dont object to rationalisation where services are duplicated (bus and train along the same corridor) I wish thin...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

All common sense (as long as the SA government renames the current Marion station to avoid confusion with the new Marion centre station)

Marion could now become Park Holme (to reflect its suburb location)
