[PRO] Re: Hove Level Crossing Removal | $171m

If they elevated the rail to Jetty Road they would also need to lift Brighton Station, which would be more complex due to its layout. It would also increase the ongoing maintenance costs for the elevated station. A viaduct will overlook people's and if steel and metal would it not rust. I assume yo...

Can you just elaborate what you mean/understand how a road can make a profit? Do you mean a cost/benefit analysis? I am curious do you know how they value/ monetise the economic benefits?
Increased productivity eventually leads to increased tax income

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

Park and ride just pushes the traffic jam back into the suburbs. The area surrounding O-Bahn stops should be transit-oriented developments. This is expensive real estate and car parks are for inexpensive real estate! transforming it into a TOD wouldn't suddenly make everyone who currently uses Para...

Re: Should the O-Bahn be converted to light rail?

Or just have overhead wires with a dedicated grade separated track on the O-Bahn corridor, with rolling stock that can reach higher speeds. The Siemans S70 can reach 100kph

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

Most of what you have said can be eliminated by not using concrete, and using a bitumen busway aka the Busways in Brisbane. Gotta change the buses transmissions as well, they're geared for stop start low traffic with end torque not high speed cruising. It's part of the reason why O-Bahn buses catch...
