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

From here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_government_areas_of_South_Australia Norwood, Payneham and St Peters has less people than Holdfast Bay and is larger in size (15km2 v 13km2) also the 2016 Census data shows Holdfast Bay has 38,653 people and NPSP is 35,362. So Holdfast Bay is smaller than...

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

Adelaides most densely populated council, Holdfast Bay is served by train and tram lines. A lot more can be done to increase density a long the Seaford line, Oaklands has so much potential, so much low density housing that could be turned into 4 to 6 story apartment blocks, Brighton you can do the s...

The house(s) opposite that open atrium area are gong to get some nice sea views and new direct beach access.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

How can you make the hills railway line operate at 160km/h? Mount Barker Station is 55km from ARS Belair is 21km, there has to be a better alternative than running it via the current line. Also to run it at 160km/h you would need both tracks, 55km is a long way on single track with very few passing ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

So three station on the Seaford line are planned to go? So let's have a guess, Firstly Edwardstown - express trains pass through really slowly, clearance issues?, needs to be rebuilt? Combine with Woodlands Park? Second Warradale, Hove will be rebuilt once the grade separation happens, Brighton need...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

New "stand behind the white line" messages have been painted on some train stations - via SA Planning, Transport and Infrastructure on Facebook. This clearly shows how dangerous Brighton is there's about 50cm between the white line and a wall. Brighton station is busy and needs a rebuild. Rip down t...

Re: Oaklands Crossing | $174m

The Marinos are very close 600m according to Wiki, weirdly wiki says Mawson Lakes and Greenfields are 1.2km apart and Greenfields and Parafield Gardens is 1.1km, Mawson and Greenfields are clearly much closer then Greenfields and Parafield Gardens, how far apart are they (ML and GF)? less than the M...

[COM] Re: Oaklands Crossing | $174m

We need level crossing removals, station upgrades, increased frequency, electrification, more trains and a city loop. Am I missing anything?

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Imagine when we have driverless electric cars, everyone will want to use one, so all the people using the train, bus, tram etc will be in one, there will be children heading places alone in them, there will be at least double the vehicles on the road. You probably wont own the vehicle just order one...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

It's about 100m from Dudley Park station to Churchill Road, yes the apartments are not huge blocks but people living there have the same right to a train station as someone in Davoren Park does. On the other hand Ovingham may have to go when the road and rail is grade separated. The Seaford line cur...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

You want to remove stations next to Churchill road in Prospect which is currently redeveloping and lots of apartments are going up, the train is there to service everyone not just people who live near the end. Some stations can go like Greenfields, but why remove Womma it provides easy access to the...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Introduce a simple two-tired timetable for the Gawler line for interpeak and evenings at every 10 mins, first train is express Gawler - Tambelin - Smithfield - Elizabeth - Salisbury - Parafield - Mawson - Islington and Adelaide, second is all stops, so every station gets a good service An example wo...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Islington can have bus stops / turn around / small interchange on the western side, there's room there. Unless you rebuild Islington and have it accessed from the bridge, lift and stairs going down to a new centre platform. Also why would you close the Outer Harbor train just to build a line down Po...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Smaller loops are good but wont have the patronage to warrant a bus every 10mins. The giant loop I mentioned Mawson to Smithfield is probably too big, another option would be a Smithfield to Salisbury Loop and a Salisbury -Salisbury East - Mawson - Salisbury West - Salisbury loop. Whatever way it go...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Having certain routes terminate at train stations could work, especially on the Gawler and Seaford lines. Why do we need buses like the 228 heading all the way into the CBD. What you need to do is increase the frequency of the trains at the connecting stations - 10 min frequency would be good. I dou...
