[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

The absurdity of the planning on the route is becoming more evident every day. You fly through Darlington only to hit a bottle neck the moment it finishes. In one direction the Daws rd/Goodwood road intersection is going to help, a bit, until the bottle neck turns into goodwood/cross roads. But all...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The Gawler line is 42km long and the Seaford line is 36km, I don't see why people are calling for a third track on the Gawler line and not the Seaford line. Both don't need a third line, what they need is regular services and an underground city tunnel linking the two up. The Gawler line also has n...

[PRO] Re: Goodwood/Springbank/Daws Road Intersection

The radio this morning got somewhat different stories from Mark Van ("the government has forced us to close") and Stephan Knoll ("We were working to help Peter Van relocate the business, waiting for them to provide an independent valuation which we paid for as they didn't like the one we got"). It d...

Re: Glenelg Ferry & Cruise ship terminal

Geelong https://i.postimg.cc/W3mBwbx7/Screen-Shot-2019-11-18-at-10-23-56-PM.png Is the Patawalonga Channel comparably deep/wide/close/calm to do something similar at Glenelg? Corio Bay opening from Port Philip Bay looks more sheltered than Holdfast Bay off of Gulf St Vincent. I don't know how shelt...

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

Easter's in April. Id like to think at least the main carriageway would be open then. How long before traffic was the T2T open day? The Superway Open Day was well before it even looked close, if I remember. T2T open day was Sep 23 2018 & it was opened to traffic the weekend after. So we could expec...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Isn’t the Seaford line an all-stops 15 min frequency service during the weekday inter peak period? Not quite. The section between Woodlands Park and Adelaide has half the Seaford trains running express and the other half stopping. So Northbound trains arrive in Adelaide at irregular intervals, and ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Five minute train intervals sound nice for people travelling along the railway. I live one side, but drive to work and church on the other side. Lots of people cross it for schools, shops etc too. How many level crossings would need to be grade separated for 5 minute trains? Curtis Road queue would ...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Considering most people don't actually have to go to the city but suburb to suburb I think it'll be wise to look at suburban tram lines. For example: 1) Gawler to Gawler Central Line via 19th Street, Adelaide Road, Murray Street. *Possible extension to Willaston pub. What would trams do on that rou...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

The Entertainment Centre has a large car park that is otherwise underused during weekdays, ideal to double up as park and ride. Is there an opportunity to use a similar facility somewhere up The Parade? I can't see a car park near Norwood Oval, nor space to put one anywhere near the Portrush Road in...

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

Don't forget that Salisbury Highway should be alot quieter once the Northern Connector is up and running so there shouldn't be any major problems merging/changing lanes. What Salisbury Highway traffic will move on to the Northern Connector? They are divergent routes. Are you talking about the short...

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

Traffic was tame enough this morning to utilise the southbound lanes of the Superway this morning. The on-ramp from Salisbury Highway will eventually be reduced to one lane (it's temporarily set up for 2 lanes for now until the northern connector opens), with the lane form Salisbury Highway providi...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The trains is run by a public sector company whereas the buses is run by a private sector company, so in theory Southlink don't want passengers to catch the train they want them to catch their bus. The fare revenue goes to the SA government, the private operator is paid on the grounds of providing ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Why do we have so many buses that go from the CBD to the outer northern suburbs? Should just have one bus that goes from CBD up Main North Rd that terminates in Elizabeth. All other outer North buses should be feeder routes to the nearest train station. This will of course be even more effective on...
