[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

Most of what you have said can be eliminated by not using concrete, and using a bitumen busway aka the Busways in Brisbane. Gotta change the buses transmissions as well, they're geared for stop start low traffic with end torque not high speed cruising. It's part of the reason why O-Bahn buses catch...

[ONH] Re: News & Developments: Parafield Airport Retail

Does anyone seriously think The District will actually start development. Apparently they were struggling to attract retailers even before COVID hit. As someone who lives in Salisbury, I can't see it happening. They would be better off linking it to Mawson Lakes in some form. There's already a half...

It's more the steep decline required to get under it. Probably a gradient not suitable for a motorway.
they'd start to decline at the bottom of the T2T trench, not the surface

The River Torrens would prove a significant challenge for a tunnel.
I think there's enough space to get under the river

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

how about tram on the surface and rail underneath, it doesnt have to be one or the other. an interesting thought experiment, If the O-Bahn was converted to rail where would it's tunnel go? what about connecting Outer Harbor to O-Bahn rail corridor through a city tunnel The long-term dream is to hav...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The Unley Road line on the map at the bottom of the previous page looks like a surface tram would be a better choice. I'm not sure if the rest of the Belair line could be converted to tram use, or if there are safety rules about putting light rail in the same corridor next to heavy freight rail. ho...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

How about this Connect Gawler and Seaford with a U shaped tunnel, Connect Outer Harbor and Belair with a tunnel the length of Unley road. https://i.imgur.com/kZEu7QK.jpg Then ARS can be a terminus for regional/interstate trains. Mile End station is closed, replaced with a tram service if it's needed

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

edit: Removing Tambelin and Kudla would give a roughly 9 km stretch there without a single train station. This is a suburban line, not an interstate service. Removing Tambelin and Kudla while building a new station at Gordon/Tiver Road and replacing Evanston with a station at the A20 overpass would...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

I think the Gawler Line will see many of the benefits electrification can bring since the stations are a bit more spread out and the track is straighter. There are parts on the Seaford line that are rated at 110km/h, including near Oaklands and the extension beyond Noarlunga. The Gawler eletrificat...

Re: Discussion: 20-Year State Infrastructure Strategy

I think any XX year plan for infrastructure in this state needs to include general road maintenance as a high priority. Not just the road surfaces however, but also adjoining footpaths and proper bike lanes that aren't an after thought which sees more crammed into the same space, and landscapping a...
