[VIS] Re: Interstate Trains at Adelaide Railway Station

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. you can't attract an international company like that without proving that they could...

Free public transport....nothing is free.....it just means someone else is paying.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

I feel that every station between Salisbury and Adelaide would definitely benefit from relocation of the ARTC line. It forms a massive barrier to access and movement, and limits the scope for other improvements; for example, potential passing loops at major stations or platform widening. Build the ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Islington is a good example of virtually zero access, and provides a strong case against approval of the Kaufland supermarket development that was unfortunately recently approved for the site.

Kings Road is terrible. The Parafield crossing needs to be grade separated ASAP. But of course its the usual safe Labor seat issue, which means that it won't be an election issue. The crossing actually is the border of Spence and Makin federally. It needs to be 2 lanes in either direction for the e...
