Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

I’d say that would certainly be a question. Speed is important - got to be able to get to Melbourne faster than you can drive there.

I’d say you would just want stops at Adelaide, Aldgate (?), Murray Bridge, Keith, Bordertown, Nhill, Horsham, Ararat, Ballarat...?

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

There are two things that give me hope for the future of the overland at the moment... 1. For the first time, Bombardier are designing and building Standard-gauge Velocity trains. Residents on the Victorian North East line (Albury etc.) have been pushing for this for a while. Sorry this article’s be...

Couple of updates: - Call has been made for expression of interest for someone to develop the site they hope to place a supermarket and shops on: https://m.realcommercial.com.au/property-land+development-sa-tonsley-502862454 - Lady Burra (Topham Mall) will open a brew house at the old Tonsley boiler...

[COM] Re: The Bend Motorsport Park

I wonder if, for something like a once off to Tailem Bend for race days, it would make more sense for the train to pick passengers up from somewhere like Goodwood station. Already a platform there (disused) for the SG line, can connect with Seaford / Tonsley / Belair lines there....?

[COM] Re: The Bend Motorsport Park

Interesting to see how the rail idea turns out...

Would love to see some nice hills built up around the track / trees on the hills - nice spectator friendly areas to sit and watch racing with some natural shade.

Re: U/C: Tonsley Park Redevelopment | $1b

Good to see some grass and trees. Hopefully there is also a few cafes restaurants and retail. Pity the majority of the site not like this. The Tafe should have been multi storey too. Couple of little cafes in the Flinders hub area so far. Apparently there's a hope to turn the old boiler shed at the...

[VIS] Re: interstate passenger trains back to the Adel Railway Station

Love some of the dreaming but it's not exactly easy to do major developments in the parklands in Adelaide, and given at the moment we only have a twice-a-week service to Melbourne that's propped up by government funding and the Indian Pacific which works fine at the current terminal... realistically...

Looks great. Hope they actually keep the grassed area long term, this area could do with a bit more grass around!

Re: Adelaide Hills | Developments & News

Looks great, but I would love more detail on the plans, especially the hotel, the shopping village and the cable car. Will there also be access improvements to the summit? A roundabout at the entrance would be a great start, as well as better public transport access. I would have thought you use th...

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

I remember reading that. Looks good. Was there ever a reason given for the elevated road from Edward St to Daw's Road? Would prefer a trench the whole way - but I'm sure there's plenty of time for those things to be changed anyway. I think they had an option to include grade separating the rail line...

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

Settle down their Rev, the discussion's not about whether it should be built, just whether a trench or a tunnel is the best way to go, given the nature of the area.... :lol: The nature of the area is that they live on a major north south artery. Their opinions should be sympathized with, and then i...

Re: U/C: Electrification & Upgrade of the Adelaide Rail Network

Sorry I'm thinking about the Hills in my post. I think most would agree that the better way to get to Victor from Adelaide would be via Seaford, but the point is there is a rail corridor already there through Mount Barker. Still operational too if you count the Steamranger. There'd need to be a gau...
