Could brighton station also be removed, leaving one new mega "brighton" station to replace Brighton, Hove and Warradale, situated under or over brighton road.
Would make sense, given all the shops and services on Brighton road. Space for adequate parking would be required though.

I thought Hove station would go, replaced by a new Warradale station (further west than current location)

Then there's no easy access to Brighton Beach and Jetty Road. You need to make public transport dirt easy to use otherwise people won't use it. If it doesn't deliver people to the doorstep or a short walk to where they want to go, they're not interested. Use the beach as a drawcard to encourage use of the station.

On the Seaford Line last night, in addition to updated train maps showing Clovelly Park as the new terminus for the Tonsley Line, large red signs for Priority Seating and dark blue for Wheelchair spaces have also been added. Didn’t manage to snap a pic though. The Gawler Line was also changed to a much lighter brown, almost red.

The train I’m on today still has the old map and none of the new accessibility signs though. I’m sure they’re coming soon.

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 needs to be rebuilt but it's too busy to be removed, now thirdly Marino or Marino Rocks.

Curious decision to update the map to remove Tonsley and not add a "Flinders (under construction)" to spruik the new station

So do we still call it the Tonsley Line? :sly: I think it sounds better than the Clovelly Park Line.

I think the map could be drawn better at Woodlands Park. The branch as drawn is very close to Ascot Park, which the Tonsley Line doesn't stop at. As a side question, does anyone know why the Tonsley Line was never built to include Ascot Park?

That would be a good idea and I like the name "Flinders Line"! :D

By keeping the name "Tonsley Line" it saves them reprinting all the timetables and any other printed media only to re-reprint everything once the Flinders extension opens. It will eventually be called the "Flinders Line" though.

Besides, Clovelly Park station serves the Tonsley suburb and development precinct so the line name is still technically accurate. :wink:

Tonsley line may of only being built to transport cars from Mitsubishi Tonsley Plant to port and ransporting workers to and from the plant was the main goal. Many stations on the branch are basic cos a worker working long hours just wants to get from a to b, how pretty the station is is the last thing on their minds.
