F. F. S Just make Grange a spur line line...........change at Woodville.

Port Dock - City........all stops

Outer Harbor - City.....all stops to Woodville, express to city.
Surely it is not worthwhile to run a train (Grange) for 4 stops with a bloody great golf course in the middle?
Time to force the sale of the golf course and turn it into a TOD

We need more open space and more greenery in Adelaide, not less. It helps suburban cooling and provides open space for recreation and wellbeing.

We also need infill to stop suburban sprawl. Surely there will be a compromise with leaving some of the golf course as parks. I don't understand why there are so many golf courses in Adelaide. When you fly over Adelaide in a plane, they take up so much area.

That's true, but do we need 3 golf courses within 3 kilometers of each other on the same road?

There's substantial space for TODs at Kilkenny and Seaton Park stations.
Our state, our city, our future.

Thank you. There is literally acres of wasted ex industrial space adjacent to Kilkenny station before we go carving up golf courses. The Grange train is more than viable as an all stops, particularly with urban infill, and to free up OH for express services. If the people running the trains cant manage to slot a 30min frequency OH express in between an all stops grange AND Port dock, they shouldn't be in the business.

In hindsight, the West Lakes devlopment should have left the stadium and instead be built at Seaton Park or the golf course. The new development would already have a railway to the city :wallbash: At least the Port Adelaide development will have Port Dock railway station.

While we are discussing urban renewal in relation to the Grange Line, does anyone know why the redevelopment at Woodville West former housing trust estate is moving so slowly? I was still living in the area when it was first proposed and the first housed came down. It seems to have sat largely idle whilst St Claire has steamed ahead. I thought it was a pretty good location with good transport links and the mall nearby?
