Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

More bus-train interchanges would be ideal. On the Gawler Line for example, an interchange at Islington could absorb a majority of citybound passengers on Churchill Road and Main North Road buses. Passengers continue into town via more epace-efficient trains, while that now-empty bus goes back out ...

And yet there is no plan announced to fix the Main North Road/Grand Junction Road/Port Wakefield Road intersection at Gepps Cross

[U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

On the topic of local traffic flows following opening of the NC, there's this idea. It would have formed a kind of ring road connecting Adelaide's north with the eastern suburbs. Down the bottom is the idea of following the MATS Plan's Dry Creek Expressway corridor, by connecting the Salisbury High...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

can't see this happening for another 30 years minimum. once the NS motorway is complete all the trucks coming off the SE freeway will go straight down cross road. no point them going onto portrush road. then we'll have the next major bottleneck especially at the Belair line crossing. make yourself ...

[U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

Can imagine cars banked up on Bolivar offramp if the traffic light at Bolivar has a short green light especially during afternoon peak. Whites Road should be extended, then over or under Port Wakefield Road, then a interchange at the Northern Connector. Burton Road (north) and Burton Road (south) sh...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

A train service to Mount Barker would be good. It could mean less buses are required, freeing up buses that could be used elsewhere in the hills i.e. the 834, 837.

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.

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...
