Re: New Adelaide public transport hub

Cheers, I'm new to Adelaide and hadn't seen that plan before. I still think wherever possible the underground rail should be north-south under King William, and crossed by an east-west busway to take buses off the Obahn. An underground interchange could link the two to help distribute passengers acr...

Re: New Adelaide public transport hub

The underground section through Adelaide CBD should go straight up King William Street, with stations around South Terrace, Victoria Square and near the existing railway station. Plus probably an additional station near the cricket ground / North Adelaide. This does duplicate the existing tram line ...

Re: Rebranding of Adelaide Metro

The destination boards in Melbourne look great, but might be slight overkill in Adelaide given there are minimal stations where multiple lines (or even rail & tram) connect. For what its worth Adelaide has already done a pretty solid job integrating their journey data into API's that can be used. Go...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Garuda have their own problems keeping up with demand out of Jakarta, plus Surubaya and other growing Indonesian ports. As an archipelago Indonesia lends itself very much towards air travel, so stimulating new growth between India and Indonesia is not top priority. Note also that Singapore airlines ...

Re: New Adelaide public transport hub

Adelaide needs to focus on electrifying the remainder of the rail network, and completing an underground link through the CBD, ideally by linking up the Seaford and Gawler lines and running trains through. Ideally there would be an underground station underneath or very close to the existing Adelaid...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

IMO Emirates are highly overrated, they’re really just the greyhound buses of the sky. I’d fly Singapore or even Qantas over them any day. I do hope Qantas launch more international services direct from Adelaide at some point. The A320neo will be a very interesting proposition for connecting cities ...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Airport rail lines in cities around the world are really only feasible where the airport itself is some distance from the city, like Hong Kong for example and to a lesser extent Sydney. Even in Singapore the airport line operates as a branch and doesn't see a lot of traffic compared to most other li...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

If an issue exists around the tram depot, my suggestion is to look at an East-West extension from Henley Beach / Airport through to the Eastern end of the CBD. Where it goes beyond is an open question for those that live out east. The benefit of the Henley Beach & airport options are: - A depot coul...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Interestingly the Scoping Report is no longer available, at least at the link it used to live. What stood out more than anything in the report was the "two short tunnels" between HBR and SDBD. Its less than a kilometer between them so they will either be really short tunnels with a cut-and-cover sec...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

The advertiser article was Clickbait and didn't bring in any new arguments. It was written only to draw people into the emotion of losing potentially historically significant buildings, with speculation about the likely outcomes - which the articile even admitted could include tunnel options - once ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

As a point-to-point I really wish Air NZ (or Qantas - but that would be wishful thinking) would fly ADL - CHC. An A320 three times a week based out of Christchurch would work well, it could leave early morning and be back mid afternoon to carry on doing trips betweek CHC / WLG and AKL, and they've g...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Forgive my ignorance, I'm a bit of a newbie and don't even live in Adelaide (yet), but on the maps it looks like land was (or still is?) set aside for a parallel runway at ADL, to the North East of the current runway? The alignment of the Kooyonga golf course and open space around West Beach looks l...

It will be a case of hurry up and wait, as in get the plans finalised, but then delay publishing them until the next state or federal election for maximum impact
