Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The Unley Road line on the map at the bottom of the previous page looks like a surface tram would be a better choice. I'm not sure if the rest of the Belair line could be converted to tram use, or if there are safety rules about putting light rail in the same corridor next to heavy freight rail. ho...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

How about this Connect Gawler and Seaford with a U shaped tunnel, Connect Outer Harbor and Belair with a tunnel the length of Unley road. https://i.imgur.com/kZEu7QK.jpg Then ARS can be a terminus for regional/interstate trains. Mile End station is closed, replaced with a tram service if it's needed

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

edit: Removing Tambelin and Kudla would give a roughly 9 km stretch there without a single train station. This is a suburban line, not an interstate service. Removing Tambelin and Kudla while building a new station at Gordon/Tiver Road and replacing Evanston with a station at the A20 overpass would...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

I think the Gawler Line will see many of the benefits electrification can bring since the stations are a bit more spread out and the track is straighter. There are parts on the Seaford line that are rated at 110km/h, including near Oaklands and the extension beyond Noarlunga. The Gawler eletrificat...

Re: Discussion: 20-Year State Infrastructure Strategy

I think any XX year plan for infrastructure in this state needs to include general road maintenance as a high priority. Not just the road surfaces however, but also adjoining footpaths and proper bike lanes that aren't an after thought which sees more crammed into the same space, and landscapping a...

Re: SA Economy

SA wouldn't be a good location for SpaceX for a couple of reasons. They currently do a lot of US government business, and there are both legal considerations regarding ITAR and the fact that if they are doing more development work overseas they lose a lot of lobbying ability. The other reason is a ...

An Australian consortium buying Virgin Australia and it having more Australian ownership that QANTAS would be a hell of a marketing tool.

Brisbanes Airport Toll Road and the Clem Jones Tunnel would probably be on the same scale

also noticed, maybe been mentioned already, that heading south if you wanna turn left at port expressway, and head towards port wakefield/salisbury highway, there is no way to do it, there is simply no way to turn left to go back up into salisbury haha Probably not worth the cost of building that e...

This is the heaviest rain event since the surface and shoulders have been completed. Given the pictures of flooding on the adjacent bikeway, perhaps they wanted a little caution in making sure that the highway didn't have any unexpected problems. I'd guess it might get a reduced speed limit for the...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

While I agree with your points the reality is that all the buildings there have been built at very different times throughout history. The buildings you mention are built and reflect the 1900s, 1970, 1980s, 1990s, 2020 etc. Combine this with different owners/stakeholders all with different agendas ...
