Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

What would be the most ideal format? Closer to the interchange, or aligned with Flinders Drive. Which is already within walking distance to the station, and the station footbridge will connect to the bus interchange via the access road and footpath between the Wilson Carpark and the Cancer Centre. ...

Re: SA Economy

The other states don't have many industries either. I struggle to understand what people in Melbourne and Sydney do for a living, nothing seems to be made, designed, grown or dug there.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I think it's easy to overestimate the number of people travelling to and from the airport. The thing is, an articulated bus carries about as many people as a 737 or A320. That said, in Adelaide the airport is also being developed as a business park. That would bring as many commuters as the airport....

No surprises there. Their election promise was to cut, cut, cut.

Re: Commonwealth Games in Adelaide

On that site, the coach terminal seems to occupy a small amount of land. Most seems to be the bus depot. My thoughts are: Move both CBD bus depots to outside of the CBD. Then move the coach terminal to where the Currie St bus depot currently is. That way it's closer to most suburban bus routes and t...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

So do we still call it the Tonsley Line? :sly: I think it sounds better than the Clovelly Park Line. I think the map could be drawn better at Woodlands Park. The branch as drawn is very close to Ascot Park, which the Tonsley Line doesn't stop at. As a side question, does anyone know why the Tonsley ...

Re: Commonwealth Games in Adelaide

Given that some of the facilities exist next to the old Northfield railway line (eg. the velodrome), that could be relaid and operational. There is plenty of vacant and industrial land that could be turned into an athletes' village.

If it's an open tender, then why don't we put in a bid? :D Sensational Adelaide posters could run the system better than the politician's mates. :cheers:

[VIS] Re: Interstate Trains at Adelaide Railway Station

Will the Gawler line electrification include laying gauge convertible sleepers? If so, that means the three major railway lines are pretty much ready to go for gauge conversion. What will hold it back? I think much of the line already has gauge-convertible concrete sleepers. Changing gauge actually...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

If the private model is so great, then all Knoll needs to do is tell the department to emulate the private model. Hire the same managers the contractor would hire etc. Of course, that's never on the table because the purpose of privatisation is to hand money to mates. And how much of the department'...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Not to mention comparing the current Glenelg tram to the Belair line is not possible, as the Glenelg tram has a multitude of stops over an equivalent distance on any stretch of the line. If the Glenelg tram had about half the amount of current stops, and was actually operated at its capable speed o...

[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...
