[PRO] Re: Hove Level Crossing Removal | $171m

Did a stretch at DPTI in my previous life and this idea was thrown around (name being considered was 'Hovedale' if I remember correctly. Don't know where that ever went in the end though Oooh, that's pretty neat! Guess we won't know until it is announced, don't usually get leaks from these type of ...

[PRO] Re: Hove Level Crossing Removal | $171m

I use this stretch of Brighton Road in my car and the Seaford Line a lot. The time it will take to construct a rail underpass will be really disruptive to my daily commute on the train, but must be the best solution long term. I just don’t know how a road overpass could fit into the landscape here ...

FYI. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200208/194af8a1fa9a519c0f63a77adaef86cd.jpg I don't understand, how is that different from what's there already? and why does it even need upgarding? There will be more lanes on Portrush Road - it goes from two straight and one right turn each side to three s...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

So if we had a 4 day heatwave (40 plus), then we might be in a spot of bother? Not quite sure......I believe there is about 3.300 mw of total gas capacity plus diesel (not sure how much is there) plus batteries (around 100mw available, the Tesla big battery is only partly available, it is number on...

It's discrete, but it's finally startin...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Bit of a tangent, but does anyone know the chances of rail heading north east in either the medium term or long term future? I’m guessing the o-Bahn corridor would make the job somewhat easier, and from what I understand the obhan is approaching the end of its estimated useful life. The service is ...

[PRO] Re: Ovingham Level Crossing Removal

I really hope they don't go with rail under road, when there is a whole chunk of land to the north side they can use for road over rail. The reason why rail under road is the better option for this route is because it would make Hawker St LX removal a lot easier. Plus also would make the Park Terra...
