Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Looks like the "Noarlunga Freeway" would have followed Adams Road at Trott Park and Morphett Road at Seacombe and then followed the alignment in the image onto the Tonsley line. Also is there a reason why Morphett, Adams and Panalatinga Roads seem to follow the same alignment but don't join up? Acc...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Great find! I do believe the area around Parkmore Ave was intended as the northern end of the Noarlunga Freeway as per the MATS Plan. It would then follow this reservation and use the Tonsley line. https://i.imgur.com/48RlrtH.png I do recall a proposal for railway from Sturt (Tonsley) to Marino are...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

I am definitely one of those people who, if given the option, would much prefer a 17 plus hour direct flight than having one or two stopovers. I find navigating unfamiliar airports an absolute annoyance. A deliberate layover in a foreign place, with enough time (a day or two) to get out and get a s...

Will tehe footpath be "restored" to the original form, or will the "restoration" incorporate the plan to extend the Frome Street separated bike lane? The entrance to the car park and taxi access to the hotel was one of the "complex" things that delayed the construction of the separate bike lanes.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Frankly I think it is disgusting that Qantas doesn't fly international out of Adelaide and far less likely to do so now given current goings on. But what would be the use of having Qantas fly ADL-SIN (aside from making better use of QFF and Qantas Club)? Especially if it means a stop in either Pert...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

Looking forward to the state government paying the same amount of money to them to only do maintenance on the roads the transport industry double dip pays for, and nowhere else The state government only pays for the main roads now, so I doubt that would change. The local roads that clog up with sch...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Qantas needs to bring back international flights from Adelaide sometime With Qantas retiring all of its 747s, and investing in long range 787s, I wonder if there are any end-points that could support non-stop flights to/from Adelaide. Do we have enough migrants, business connections and tourists (i...

Thank you. I thought @Pikey indicated that he/she had also seen something different that related to the floors, not just the core.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

They had already suspended adelaide flights for covid19. This announcement is for them withdrawing permanently. Based on the following quote in Advertiser from an Emirates spokesperson, not sure that permanent is the most appropriate wording. “We hope to restart our operations in Adelaide when it i...

Re: Beer Garden

Holy sheeeet, just heard a Qantas flight headed to Brisbane. Been a while, have gotten accustomed to the skies being pretty quiet these last few months. Also, just read that an airport in Taiwan has been offering "flights to nowhere". You can register your interest and if selected you get to go thr...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

One road is in Adelaide and one road is in Sydney both of them are roughly the same width. Looking at the Sydney example they have managed to fit a bus lane (meaning that buses are not in a traffic jam). If we followed this example on many of Adelaide's main roads as possible that will surely get t...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

So, in summary, the changes were proposed to address the reasons why some people do not currently use public transport. The proposal was then dumped because some people who currently use it complained. If "we" want more people on public transport, it has to be made more attractive to the people who ...
