Re: SA Economy

So they are going to allow companies to pay those 50,000 foreign workers they plan on bringing here, up to 10% less then they would locals. They've released a list of "skills shortage" jobs. It was on AdelaideNow, cant find it now. ... Who are 'they"? ... And vehicle manufacturing is back...in the ...

Another stuff up by the state government, honestly DPTI is full of idiots.
Isn't this a design and construct project, so how is this a "stuff up" by DPTI?

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

And back on the subject of Oaklands railway station, how’s it looking? 🧐 See Norman's comprehensive set of photos in a series of posts this week starting at http://www.sensational-adelaide.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=179768#p179768 Also an extract from an update yesterday by the project team: The pro...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Does anyone know of the future planning for the 3000 series rail cars? Will they be converted to electric operation? Or will they be run as diesels until they just die, and the government is forced to consider replacements? Given that they have just been re-engined and mechanically refurbished, I w...

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

Individual train speed as well as frequency, less level crossings means less times where a train has to slow down to a 'safe' speed, which cuts a couple minutes off the journey. Road level crossings in themselves don't necessitate speed restrictions on the AdMet network. There are however a number ...

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

Any word on whether the old station shelters might be reused elsewhere? With their length, you could cover two platforms at two separate stations... I think the answer is no reuse. Two photos taken today of the canopy demolition. To have been reused the receiving station would have to have had side...

Re: 2019 Footy Express

The thing is, if you want to pick a time to make PT free, it should be when there are light loads and lots of spare capacity. Between say 10 am and 2 pm on weekdays, there is lots of excess capacity in the system. This is because buses that are scheduled for the morning/afternoon peak are also driv...

Those pictures really say all this. That station should definitely be an extreme example, but even a station is actually quite unacceptable to get worse in that situation.
Which pictures? What station?

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

Weirdly enough one one of the poles looks like it's been completely rusted. Could this be from the sea breeze, this pole wasn't protected properly against rust but because the current path the line takes is going to be ripped up soon it's a waste of money to replace it? This pole was installed last...

In Melbourne, they'd have the works done in 3 days. But here, they gotta stretch it out for more money for workers.

A few shots from tonight Your first shot at the extreme left shows what I noticed on Friday, a new signal in a cage on the pedestrian bridge to retain the facility of departing from the down platform towards the city. This indicates that the existing crossover is either being kept in its present lo...

Glanville could be made into an island platform closer to the road. Nothing uses that middle bit.
In the current timetable there are several morning peak services that start from Glanville.
