Re: News & Discussion: Trams

The most basic problem with Prospect Rd, The Parade, Henley Bch Rd etc etc is actually fitting trams (with cars/ traffic). Probably all off street parking would need to go. So what do you think the traders will say? Only maybe if trams share the road with cars/traffic as they do on Jetty Rd Glenelg...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

A Semaphore - Port Adel - Modbury light rail will simply never happen. Would never have a strong enough business case. Until 1988, there was a Port Dock to Dry Creek passenger service. There's also the 361 bus route that covers a similar route. It will be a bit like Melbourne's Suburban Rail Loop, ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

No route between Port Adelaide and Brighton via Tapleys Hill Road, a half hourly service will help reduce congestion along this corridor Adelaide's street network is a grid, yet the bus network doesn't function at all like a grid. Sure, the city is the most popular destination, but some of those ro...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I'm a bit confused by your post. You suggest multiple trams from the various branches would be inefficient, but then go on to suggest converting the rails to an OBahn. OBahn is virtually identical to light rail, using buses instead of trams. Converting the rail to an Obahn track however would have ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

On the buses...if I wanted to go from Flinders Park to Brompton, it would take 55 minutes according to the metro trip planner. As opposed to 10 minutes by car. Brompton to Henley Beach...63-74 minutes by bus. 19 minutes by car. There's too many buses with nobody on them or under half a dozen people...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

With regard also as to light v heavy rail, I happened to be in SA last week and used both the Glenelg tram and the Grange train. What struck me was the incredible slow pace of the train. It was virtually walking pace out of Adelaide yard, and barely 40 km/h to Bowden. The tram on the other hand, se...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

In my opinion its time King William Street between North Terrace and Victoria Square be turned into a transit mall It's easier to just change the traffic signal cycles. Make all of those signals pedestrian scrambles and give them a scramble twice per cycle. This is a low cost solution to the problem.

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

Is Golden Grove Road heavily congested during peak hour? I don't go there often. If not, I don't see the need to build dedicated bus infrastructure so far out of the CBD. It's better to spend the money on bus lanes on other routes.

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

This is what we need for a better Overland: Variable gauge, so that it can drive into ARS and use the Ararat Line Tilt train, so that it can run at greater cant deficiency through the hills Diesel power Spain has similar requirements to the above, so let's look there. They have the Talgo 250, which ...

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

Depends on how many full cargo planes per day of produce for export. Depends on whether spending $5bn on an airport is more effective than spending that same amount on other projects which could also reduce traffic. Depends on whether there are higher priorities. $5bn would probably build the CBD r...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

That is the stupidest proposal I've ever heard of. Running a tram along Victoria Drive is literally a tram to nowhere. Adelaide University and Botanic Gardens are already serviced by the new route to the East End. :wallbash: Especially the part where the tram has to change direction. That makes no ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

The bus lane on Anzac Highway was a good idea.
