Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The regional coach logo looks promising. Integrating passenger information for the coaches run by LinkSA/Stateliner/etc into the wider AdMet network and website just makes sense. If I understand it correctly, operation-wise they're losely similar to the city buses; the government releases a contract...

Any way to see this video without paying The Advertiser’s paywall?
The video is the source of concept stills that have been released in the past. Video has been capped straight from The Advertiser website.

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

Meanwhile on R2P noise walls are going up. For such a short 1.8 km section that links a stretch with noise walls (T2T) to a stretch that has no noise walls (Superway) it would've looked better to just use the T2T noise wall design. Go all out for a different design on the long central section, but ...

Has anybody seen any images with the top of the Walker Tower shown?, it always seems to be cut off to not overwhelm the space - just co-incidence I guess? :wink:
It’ll be a similar height to the Intercontinental

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

I've heard from a pretty good source that this will be built as a rail underpass similar to the Oaklands Crossing. This hasn't been locked in 100% but is almost certain. I'm hoping to see a near-identical design to Oaklands. It would tie them both in as Seaford Line stations and as part of the wide...

[PRO] Re: Ovingham Level Crossing Removal | $231m

New station platforms, but only those shitty bus stop shelters? The design is only indicative, they'll almost certainly install new shelters it's just easier to display the current ones until they know what they'll be doing. Remember, the concept animations for Bowden, Oaklands and now the Flinders...

[U/C] Re: [U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

Yes that's how I remember it. So why all the angst about about an entry/exit to the expy? Because at Panalatinga SEXY only has a northbound entrance and a southbound exit, which means there's no way onto the Expressway to head south, or get off heading north, between Marion Rd and Sherriffs Rd, whi...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

I can only speak for the Aberfoyle and Blackwood areas for local buses but all of the routes in this area are near identical to the current network. The new Aberfoyle-Flinders-Marion 330 is identical to the current 320; the G22X express from Aberfoyle is now the X331 and terminates at Flinders for ...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

Was driving past the MSR/Candy/Lander intersection so decided to do a lap each way through. It's fully open but just a few finishing works and minor landscaping remain. Not sure how much can be said about an intersection but it seems pretty good, I'm sure locals and east-west traffic between Happy V...

Those escalators...why?
Almost certainly for accessibility compliance. Without them you’d either have to go through the railway station concourse or go the long way around the Festival Centre via KWR and Elder Park. Not everyone can use stairs.

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

I agree re bus stops. But, what's happened with the surface road around T2T is that traffic has reduced on what is South Road. The majority of traffic is through the area and therefore uses the motorway. Perhaps they've done a traffic study/survey and found a similar thing throughout? Flinders Hosp...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

No bike lanes and the lanes themselves are so tight, with no provision for any room if someone broke down etc. This is especially disappointing considering significant amount of traffic (inc Ambulances / Police) that still use that portion of road to go to Flinders Hospital / Uni, Sturt Police Stat...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Nine News Adelaide made me chuckle, they seem to think the seats are all laid out 3-3 and every other seat will be pulled out. Follow-up to my previous post. Today’s Advertiser had an article about the seat removal. They wrote our current seats are 3x3... with a picture clearly showing the 3x2 seat...
