What is the source? Is this a DPTI press release or is it a news story?
What is it with you and sources?
When a quote appears in a post, is it not a reasonable question to ask where it comes from? Most posters do give a link or other indication of where quotes come from.

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

The National Railway Museum, which ripped out tracks in anticipation of a new rail spur in to the heart of Port Adelaide, will still receive $60,000 in compensation from the State Government despite its decision to shelve the project. Museum chairman David Burnett and executive officer Bob Sampson ...

A 220m section of shoddy concrete between two pieces that dramatically dropped off the South Rd Darlington Upgrade will be totally replaced, possibly as soon as today. The State Government has confirmed that works will start this week, weather permitting, to take down the existing shotcrete between...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

Just saying, but the London Underground remains government-owned and run. I just can't see this latest Marshall and Knoll initiative working in the long run. I don't think it will work either, we are to small. What will be interesting is if the new operations can bring some of the user experiences ...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Interesting that LeFevre Peninsula and light rail and merit all appear in the same sentence. Is there a glimmer of hope there? Not with a Liberal Government. Sorry. I guess that massive 6kms of tram over 16 years gives you hope with the other mob.[emoji1787] Full credit to Labor, they knew how to k...

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

Why did developers (and the government enable) this residential development? We should only be building high density around existing railway stations. This is why we can't have high quality public transport in Adelaide. It's not clear which residential development you are referring to? Port Dock? G...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

The Port Adelaide-Dry Creek railways will soon be disused because there is a new railway being built over the salt flats. I think if we have a Port Adelaide tram, we could continue the tram along the Port Adelaide-Dry Creek alignment. Then at Dry Creek, continue on the old Northfield alignment. A s...

[PRO] Re: Brighton Road Grade Separation

Perhaps an interesting consideration for the Hove Crossing upgrade would be to continue the cutting through to Jetty Road and relocate/grade separate Brighton station to be closer to Brighton Beach and the Jetty Road cafes. I'm guessing Hove Crossing will likely close the Adelaide-Warradale section...

[PRO] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

The nitty gritty needs to come out and all has to be fully transparent. If a contract was signed how can this Govt terminate it? Who costed the project at $16m and what has now caused it to blow out 250%? Is the company that was awarded the contract now getting paid out [obviously a reduced amount]...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Cross Road, Hawthorn is probably among the worst ones you've listed. If we're talking about creating a better corridor between the S/E Freeway and the N/S corridor then I would suggest sending Cross Road above the tramline and both intersections nearby. Train line at Hawthorn? The tramline at Cross...

Yes interesting as I didn’t know the Govt didn’t own it already. Any idea who owns it at the moment? See the quote from InDaily in Llessur2002's post.

[PRO] Re: Torrens Road Grade Separation

If so, the ramp may need to climb to about 8 metres above the railway to allow clearance for double-stacked freight trains as well as the thickness of the bridge deck. The start of the ramp would already be about 2 metres above the level of the railway line, which means it needs to climb another 6 ...

[PRO] Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

If SA Liberals are to grade separate Brighton Road they might as well do Skyrail (viaduct) from Warradale to Marino. Skyrail was an option in Melbourne because there was already a wide rail corridor within which the viaduct could be constructed while maintaining the existing rail service. The Hove ...
