Re: News & Discussion: Trams

At least when you are standing on the tracks to read it, you will know in real time if you are about to be run over. 😉 Reminds me of back in 2008 they installed those dot-matrix info screens at some train stations, CityRail in Sydney had them since the late 80s-early 90s and were phasing them out a...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I would like to see the money spent elsewhere like grade separating the intersection of Elder Smith Road and Salisbury Highway or upgrading Bridge Road (bus stop bays, median between McIntyre Road and Smith Road, traffic light at intersection of Wynn Vale Drive) or putting in traffic lights at Haydo...

Whilst the motorway tunnel is being built i can imagine the A21 (Port Road) and James Congdon Drive will be used as a detour for many drivers.

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

Firstly trucks should be stopped from using Lipson Street especially the between the Aviation Museum pathway and St Vincent Street. Turn it into a dead end street by closing the road to non police vehicles between the north carpark entrance of NRM and the St Vincent Street. Secondly install pedestri...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

So do we still call it the Tonsley Line? :sly: I think it sounds better than the Clovelly Park Line. I think the map could be drawn better at Woodlands Park. The branch as drawn is very close to Ascot Park, which the Tonsley Line doesn't stop at. As a side question, does anyone know why the Tonsley...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The bridge should definitely be replaced with something as it’s useful for traffic, but I don’t see what the fuss is about for the actual bridge itself. A Bowden-style underpass that includes Howard Street as well as King Street with a lowered Gawler Central station would be the way to go. Finish t...

[VIS] Re: Interstate Trains at Adelaide Railway Station

Will the Gawler line electrification include laying gauge convertible sleepers? If so, that means the three major railway lines are pretty much ready to go for gauge conversion. What will hold it back? Mike Rann proposed the Outer Harbor Line would have standard gauge dual voltage tram-trains hence...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Now, of course, if the number of stations on the Grange line were to be reduced so that the average speeds got up to say, 70kph, and shave 10 mins of the schedule, that would be entirely different. That sort of saving could induce switching from cars to trains. I say that because the latest congest...

Re: After the North South Corridor..

The next corridor that the State Gov should focus on improving is Tapleys Hill Road.

Grade separations:

Tapleys Hill/Trimmer
Tapleys Hill/Grange Roads
Tapleys Hill/Henley Beach Roads
Tapleys Hill/Burbridge Roads

How do we attract to Virgin Trains to come to Adelaide and run services between Adelaide and Melbourne? By all means let GSR run cruiseships on rails whereas a company like Virgin could focus on no frills services.

Maybe NRM could merge with Steamranger and setup a museum at Mount Barker :idea:
