Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

In conjunction with the above activities, a 20-metre width of native vegetation will be planted behind the remaining Aleppo pine trees along Black Road. Planting of the 10-metre width of native vegetation along South Road is complete. The "native vegetation" looks like it will grow to mas...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

It's my opinion only, but I can only see the likes of Roseworthy and Two Wells etc being successful, and I mean by success is that it's a service that justifies heavy rail. By that, I mean that it ceases to be something that trams could do, but something that only heavy rail can. That is, long trai...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Contracts, Service & Policy

. How many level crossings remain in that section that would need to be removed to support high speed? That would have to include there being no at-grade pedestrian crossings too. I get: Pedestrian south of North Adelaide station Hawker Street, Bowden Pedestrian at Avenue Road, Ovingham Belford Ave...

[U/C] Re: Port Adelaide Dock Spur Line

Is it just me or does that curved section look odd? I'm assuming they haven't finished perhaps? The track requires the use of a tamping machine to consolidate the ballast under the sleepers to establish the correct vertical and horizontal alignments of the track. It is only more recently that the t...

Re: The Housing Crisis

Page 2 includes a long article that includes a quote that housing construction was already slowing. Nobody (in the article or here) has attempted to either challenge or explain that statement. There seems to be plenty of land "released" for housing. Has somebody done an analysis of what i...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Yeah. Renewables caused the structural failure of the interconnector and forced Pelican Point to shirk its responsibilities. :hilarious: Please explain. imagine 'Renewables' relying on fossil fuel in a black out. Since nobody was claiming that renewables, in 2017...or today, could completely take o...

Re: News & Discussion: Electricity Infrastructure

Great! Can't wait until the point when it's not just net >100% renewables, but there is basically never any need to fallback on imported fossil power. South Australia does not "rely" on imported fossil fuel.....we have our own.....there is still quite a bit of gas capacity........But when...

Am I missing something here?

How in the hell is this costing $35m?
I understood the $35m was for the the bike overpass. Has a cost been announced for the scaled back works just announced?

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The ARTC track has its own set of active pedestrian gates that operate separately from the Adelaide Metro tracks. At Nth Adelaide Station the ARTC line does have a separate crossing. However at Torrens Jn (where this week's incident took place) there is a single crossing across all 3 tracks which i...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Ever since the previous fatality, trains have limited their speed around that curve (even if they're not stopping at North Adelaide), and usually (but to be fair, not always) sound their horn. The active crossing gates are now operating at both North Adelaide Station, and where this incident occurr...

Another pedestrian killed presumably at the same place as last time: https://indaily.com.au/news/2024/01/15/train-hits-pedestrian-at-north-adelaide/ The fatality last year was at North Adelaide Station. This incident was at the crossing between the station and Torrens Bridge which had remained clos...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The active crossing at North Adelaide Station is apparently finally operational today. Only took 5 1/2 years and one death. Nice! How many remaining to be commissioned? Both North Adelaide and War Memorial Drive were being worked in the last fortnight. These were the last crossings not activated. I...
