Re: Coopers Stadium expansion

...In any case, the clubs vision to build a city stadium is what people should get behind. Not an expansion of Hindmarsh. Hindmarsh has limited space. The only way it would really work for a proper expansion that was unhindered, would be to buy up every property on that block, demolish everything(i...

[COM] Re: PRO: Oaklands Rail Overpass

In an ideal world, I would have done Morphett Road as an overpass, Diagonal Road as an underpass, with the rail line at grade. Ideal? Come on shuz, there are many busy intersections throughout Adelaide and other cities that need to and will remain at grade with traffic lights, we're not trying to b...

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

...A tram is a tram wether it goes to Glenelg or anywhere else. No. A "tram" can operate as light rail, ie. just like a regular train line, with speeds at and above what the o-bahn operates at. One advantage over heavy rail however is light rails (trams) ability to then run along the street where n...

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

...something really needs to be done about Grenfell street if they are to commit to OBahn- it really diminishes the whole thing.-A light rail on this stretch would be running on its own reserved corridor. I catch the 559 from Grenfell St . This leaves the track at Paradise and travels through Derna...

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

We didn't argue about ripping up the obahn just whether a rail or bus way would have been better Sent from my GT-S7275T using Tapatalk Who cares about might have beens ? The O-bahn works, it's popular and with a few (minor) improvements would be perfect. I'm thinking proper stations at paradise and...

Re: City Loop

Thanks for your post. We already have a Trams thread where some discussion about the tram loop has already started. There has also been some consultation by DPTI about the route, which broadly follows your proposal. Can a moderator merge the threads? Happy for discussion to occur over on Trams. Jus...

City Loop

I thought it might be interesting to start a discussion on potential alignments for a city tram loop, taking into consideration future additions etc. My current thought are that I like the Hutt St-Sturt/Halifax concept, though I would prefer the NW return from West Tce to run along Franklin instead ...

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

19 minutes is easily enough for a potential passenger to jump in their car instead of taking PT. As is proven by all the other light and heavy rail corridors in Adelaide. Convert the O-Bahn to light rail and you will likely mirror what all the other rail corridors of Adelaide do, which is have far ...

Yeah, you can probably talk about any perceived problems with immigration without referring to any one culture/religion specifically.
An unnecessary generalisation.

Might just be to establish how fast the buses can pass one-another without shaking around to much and sca...

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

A question for those who know - on ABC 891 this morning, Stephen Mullighan was talking about the tunnel and about how they are doing tests on the effect of two buses passing in the tunnel. It was mentioned that the tunnel was quite narrow. Does that mean that if in the future we scrap the o-bahn, t...

This conversation should probably be happening over on the O-Bahn thread. Moderators care to move it over before it takes over?

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Haven't the opposition already put forward their big super good idea? $4b to take the freight trains out of the peaceful Unley suburbs and put it through the northern suburbs where they belong [sarcasm]?
