Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

Some things never really actually change in South Australia - since 1994, Adelaide's public transport has been under various guises including the State Transport Authority (STA), TransAdelaide, the Passenger Transport Board, Adelaide Metro, DPTI and now SAPTA. Meanwhile Adelaide's overall transport...

Good news! Seems the momentum of this corridor is now unstoppable, with both sides committed to continuing. It's been a long time coming.

Re: Oaklands Crossing | $174m

Lonsdale should be a request stop Not sure I get the idea of request stops on a commuter line. Commuter train systems are designed to move large amounts of people at high speed and high frequency. If we introduce request stops, it slows the potential of the whole system by having to allow for a "po...

[U/C] Re: Oaklands Crossing | $174m

Some of it is addressed regularly (like under the Park Tce overpass, the rail subway in Bonython Park, and the light poles from there through to Morphett St), but they're usually retagged by the same people within days. Obviously the two councils (Charles Sturt & Adelaide) are on to it, more so tha...

[U/C] Re: Oaklands Crossing | $174m

Unfortunately there are a couple of taggers (I won't give them any exposure by mentioning their tags) at the moment who are making it their mission to tag every single bit of public infrastructure (down to something as small as a planter box) from Bowden all the way through to the riverbank precinc...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Surely this is not being blamed on rain alone? Even the heaviest of showers in Adelaide are comparatively mild with other regions. If a spell of Adelaide showers has rendered this work unsuitable, then surely the method is at fault, not the weather? Also, if the method is generally sound, it should...

[U/C] Re: Oaklands Crossing | $174m

Thanks Norman for all these pics. I think to give DPTI credit these new "super stations" (Bowden, Adelaide Showgrounds, and the earlier completed Gawler line ones like Elizabeth and Munno Para) look great and give a feel to how all of Adelaide's rail system could look if other key stations were giv...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Imagine when we have driverless electric cars, everyone will want to use one, so all the people using the train, bus, tram etc will be in one, there will be children heading places alone in them, there will be at least double the vehicles on the road. You probably wont own the vehicle just order on...
