Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Gauge conversion is not as difficult as it's made out to be. The rolling stock is easy to gauge convert. It only took two weeks to convert the Adelaide-Melbourne railway. Adelaide Metro has one fifth the track, plus the sleepers are ready to go. I reckon the Adelaide Metro network could be converte...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Your railway looks much shorter and straighter than the current alignment. How does its gradient compare? a casual 62% grade coming down in his underground section between Torrens Park Station and Sheoak Road How'd you calculate 62% and what counts as "casual" in train terms? Novice here concerning...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

Here's the map that I've drawn about a possible route for a freeway connection (in green) between North-South Motorway and South East Freeway, along with a possible rail alignment (in blue) through the Adelaide Hills. The underground sections are represented by broken lines. Your railway looks much...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

From memory they spent $6 Million on the plan for the North-South Motorway which basically broke it up into sections and attempted to prioritise the order of those sections (which has subsequently been ignored). cities are in a constant state of change and thus we cannot plan accordingly. I wouldn'...

Was the Salisbury Highway extension from Port Wakefield Road to South Road in the MATS plan, or has that effectively replaced the Montague Road to South Road line at the bottom of your picture?

[U/C] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

You think Bolivar will be an issue? You wait and see the bank up at the Regency Rd intersection once the traffic can come from Gawler without stopping. Its already bad enough. The worst intersection in the state is just going to get even worse. I don't think much of the NC traffic will actually mak...

Forget any lines that travel through the Adelaide Hills, they'll never be viable. Focus should be moved to the Adelaide Plains.

Re: Connect the Gawler and Outer Harbor rail lines

Why stop there? Lay tracks on the old Semaphore and Northfield lines and then you'd have quite a long east-west route in the north of the city. Much similar to Melbourne's Suburban Rail Loop, but much cheaper to construct since most of the route is at surface level and already there. We still don't...
