Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Considering most people don't actually have to go to the city but suburb to suburb I think it'll be wise to look at suburban tram lines. For example: 1) Gawler to Gawler Central Line via 19th Street, Adelaide Road, Murray Street. *Possible extension to Willaston pub. What would trams do on that rou...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

The Entertainment Centre has a large car park that is otherwise underused during weekdays, ideal to double up as park and ride. Is there an opportunity to use a similar facility somewhere up The Parade? I can't see a car park near Norwood Oval, nor space to put one anywhere near the Portrush Road in...

[U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

Don't forget that Salisbury Highway should be alot quieter once the Northern Connector is up and running so there shouldn't be any major problems merging/changing lanes. What Salisbury Highway traffic will move on to the Northern Connector? They are divergent routes. Are you talking about the short...

[U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

Traffic was tame enough this morning to utilise the southbound lanes of the Superway this morning. The on-ramp from Salisbury Highway will eventually be reduced to one lane (it's temporarily set up for 2 lanes for now until the northern connector opens), with the lane form Salisbury Highway providi...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The trains is run by a public sector company whereas the buses is run by a private sector company, so in theory Southlink don't want passengers to catch the train they want them to catch their bus. The fare revenue goes to the SA government, the private operator is paid on the grounds of providing ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Why do we have so many buses that go from the CBD to the outer northern suburbs? Should just have one bus that goes from CBD up Main North Rd that terminates in Elizabeth. All other outer North buses should be feeder routes to the nearest train station. This will of course be even more effective on...

[PRO] Re: 134-136 Wright Street | ~52m | 16 Levels | Motel

I would not worry. It is called a motel due to legal planning advice. I recall similar for the hotel being developed in playford. Cant recall exact reason why but not likely to be a motel like people associate. Customers are highly unlikely to park right by their rooms in a 16 storey building. I gu...

[U/C] Re: [U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

Is there going to be a south bound exit from the Port River Expressway onto the Superway, when this is complete? This would be the quickest way for anyone from the LeFevre Peninsula to get to the CBD and beyond including freight , theres a lot of industry up that way and having trucks avoid Grand J...

That's the dream - but car use will still win. So it's simply wiser to just avoid allowing silly development like Buckland Park, Mt Gambier, etc. Adelaide suburbs shouldn’t be built so far out. Developments at Two Wells for “country living” should be for country, or at least outer metro (Edinburgh,...

Ideally, these places shouldn't be promoted as satellite suburbs or towns. Unless there is a train included in any plans. That's the dream - but car use will still win.

Re: Glenelg Ferry & Cruise ship terminal

That looks like a passenger ferry, not a cruise ship (or even a vehicle ferry). If we could develop destinations that attracted enough tourists to keep it viable, that would be great. What’s in walking distance of the jetty at Edithburgh or Stansbury to make day trips exciting? Penneshaw, Kingscote ...

[VIS] Re: Interstate Trains at Adelaide Railway Station

No, one that can be shared. But as said above, a City Loop could open up ARS to make it more feasible. A plan like that would add cost to the entire project. As it stands now, an underground loop could be built only for electric rail cars. Adding intercity trains would require sufficient ventilatio...
