Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Still seems like a lot of power. So 1 MWDay = 24MWh, because you need an output of 1MW each hour. So the plant needs a constant 46.25MW (this figure might not be right) of power every hour to run. So a 50MW power plant will produce 1200MWh in a day, but its output is 50MW. I get it now MWh is the ac...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Where are you getting the 405,150MWh per year from? The plant is using 46.25 Mw a day , therefore you get 46.25 / 24 = 1.93MWh. The calculation to get to 405,150 is assuming it's using 46.25MWh, theres 8760 hours in a year so 46.25 x 8760 is 405.150. 1.93MWh = 1930KWh. Adelaide consumes about 1200MW...

That petrol station isn't very old (maybe 5 years?). Oh well - stupid decision allowing it to be built there.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

There already should be direct flights to Thailand, it's already an established tourism centre and the economy has already boomed. Vietnam's economy is growing pretty fast, tourism is increasing. We should have already had direct flights to Thailand since it's already established. Ho Chi Minh City w...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

The problem is the train station is inconvenient, we need a city loop train for bus to train connections to work properly. The tram is right at ARS and its pretty good, but thats now 3 vehicle changes. The city loop with stops at ARS (North Tce), Hindmarsh Square and Victoria Square would really boo...

Adelaides most densely populated council, Holdfast Bay is served by train and tram lines. A lot more can be done to increase density a long the Seaford line, Oaklands has so much potential, so much low density housing that could be turned into 4 to 6 story apartment blocks, Brighton you can do the s...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

How can you make the hills railway line operate at 160km/h? Mount Barker Station is 55km from ARS Belair is 21km, there has to be a better alternative than running it via the current line. Also to run it at 160km/h you would need both tracks, 55km is a long way on single track with very few passing ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

So three station on the Seaford line are planned to go? So let's have a guess, Firstly Edwardstown - express trains pass through really slowly, clearance issues?, needs to be rebuilt? Combine with Woodlands Park? Second Warradale, Hove will be rebuilt once the grade separation happens, Brighton need...
