Re: Re-Imagining the Adelaide Bus Network

So, I have put together v2.0 with a few tweaks around the edges. The following lists the updated/amended routes. Of note, reintroducing a service to Dunrobin St, including a peak service via Morphett Rd. Peak X600 will now be an L600 providing a limited stop peak service to the city from Aberfoyle H...

Re: Re-Imagining the Adelaide Bus Network

You want to reintroduce the bus route reforms that were so horrendously disastrous and poorly thought through and consequently abandoned by the government? Yeah, nah. Pass. There were some good ideas and bad ideas in those reforms. Let's not throw out the baby with the bathwater. Let's work out wha...

Re-Imagining the Adelaide Bus Network

So I'm stuck in iso at the moment and it got me thinking about revisiting the much-maligned overhaul of the Adelaide Bus Network. Overall I found it to be quite positive, and just needed a few tweaks here and there to fill in a number of the gaps it left. So with my time at home, I went to task adju...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Light rail in tunnels won't ever and should never happen. Absolute rubbish.....plenty of cities around the world want to get their trams/light rail vehicles off the surface of crowded city streets to speed up the service. Here's a Wikipedia article to explain it in simple terms. https://en.wikipedi...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Converting the Outer Harbor line won't happen after the Torrens Junction project. Why not? The junction was designed to cater for both scenarios. If it does get converted, then the line will join the road at War Memorial Dr and connect to King William Rd in front of Adelaide Oval. Light rail in tun...

You can't just expect them to commit to do a tunnel, tunnels, surface motorway, elevated motorway, trench, combination of all of that or whatever, without doing the proper preliminary work.
Why not? That's how the Eastern states get things done! Announce now. Work out the details later. :lol:

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

Back then, Noarlunga was a station on the WIllunga Railway which used a different route than now past Hallett Cove. South Road looked a lot different to what we now want to see upgraded. Kinda, but not quite. The Noarlunga station on the old Willunga line was nowhere near the current Noarlunga Stat...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

The ON-DEMAND bus service is from Outer Harbor to Largs Bay only. I am at Glanville it is a bit hard to push a wheelchair up the ramp at the Port Adelaide train station or push over one of the bridges and it cost a bit when you need to go to the Port 3 or 4 times a week. The new bus network still h...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

I also suggested a major change to the cross town 300/301 route. I proposed that the route stay the same from Marion all the way round back to the western suburbs but that it ends at Adelaide Airport. Shorter, easier to keep to timetable and "destinations" at either end.....not just a cro...

Re: Bus contract overhauls - Our suggestions

I'm not a huge fan of the massive suburban loop. I think you can combine and split with some of the other cross-suburban routes to provide much greater utility. I propose adjusting the 300/301, 312, 313 and 321 into three connector routes. This provides greater options for West Beach residents, brin...

Go for a drive down there and make a post suggesting where you think a bike lane would fit after Chief Street on that side of the road. The project isnt about widening Torrens road and adding a dedicated bike lane, so why would it be done..even if there was room without having to widen the entire r...
