Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

More bus-train interchanges would be ideal. On the Gawler Line for example, an interchange at Islington could absorb a majority of citybound passengers on Churchill Road and Main North Road buses. Passengers continue into town via more epace-efficient trains, while that now-empty bus goes back out ...

[PRO] Re: 3-27 Walsh Street, Thebarton | 26m | 8 Levels | Apartments

The property had more units than car spaces, so there would be cars on the street. Those back streets get full during the day while people get the tram into the city. I don't understand why anything gets approved if it doesn't have at least one off street park per unit. It's not going ahead now, so ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

It seems silly to me that Qatar and Emirates fly at almost the same time to almost the same destination. One of them should move to a daytime flight.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

One of the great things about the Outer Harbor route, in particular, is that it's straight from Nairne Junction to Port Adelaide. This means the wheel profile is not a concern, you could run trams or trains of any type. Dual gauge is difficult because of the closeness of broad and standard gauge, bu...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Without dredging up an old circular argument, does anyone here know the actual reason the original coast to coast concept including dual voltage tram/train element on the OH line was canned? I thought I read it got canned because the technology for dual voltage trams was not feasible, and it became...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I'm in Prague atm, and I noticed this dirt cheap piece of equipment for getting rid of corrugations in rails, such as afflict most of our King William Street stops. How cheap is that? This is what you're looking at, it's a railgrinder: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Railgrinder I'm sure the DPTI has...

[VIS] Re: Interstate Trains at Adelaide Railway Station

Without building a tunnel or anything else, just moving the goods trains to the Hills bypass will make a big difference. 34 % of curves on this stretch have a radius of 400 m or less. Let's look at the maximum speed we can run through a 400 m radius curve on a mixed passenger/freight line. These are...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I can't wait until we have driverless trams. That will mean we can have high frequency public transport 24/7. This is the direction the government should be taking, instead of driverless cars. Just because we can have 24/7 operation doesn't mean we will . Apparently the driverless bus in Munno Para...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

It is literally called Cross Road. It's got a good name for a connector between the freeways. If it gets built, it should also go a bit further west and connect Anzac Hwy too.

Re: Disneyland Adelaide

I think the old Holden factory should be turned into a Mad Max theme park. That would be something unique, pretty cool and fitting with the heritage of the site. Plus it's a practically disused site (Parafield is still used) and it has good public transport connections.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

There isn't anything trams can do that BRT can't do. BRT has the advantage of flexibility, especially when it comes to extending bus routes beyond the BRT network. It's a shame that Sydney had such a poor experience with it that it's political poison, because a monorail would actually be a great sol...
