Re: News & Discussion: Trams

"In five year’s time, it’s quite likely that trams won’t be the best option – that there’s emerging technology in trackless, autonomous, electric, and every variation thereof."

[PRO] Re: Aldinga Rail Extension | $800m

Better to have a high frequency train line near the coast (where most of the new development will take place) leaving the wine/agricultural areas intact. It really is important to keep the McLaren Vale wine region as a functioning grape growing area, not as an area with grapes between the quarter ac...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

I Why do people seem to think it's a good idea to remove a service instead of improving it, they think the Gawler line is slow so lets remove 5 stations, who is using it now?
