Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport

I like the graffiti. Gives it a very "urban" look. You'll love this train from Slovenia then https://pgjt9w.ch.files.1drv.com/y4mcjm6lblRL_8hV2ASl8cLgy_PnB19C_YvvebeW5bKBYxE6mWzlEy4ACVzYZBxWfnOpw8FnC_woqlLCIGXvsyO4IhMo87ZdptObJhO5zrNN8wuwsPjgNA2-60sUARgbtX9hrJnz2LFe8Q3zEXtlrHR5kSA6q5FThl12uu6tHlq57...

Re: 2018 South Australian State Election

I believe it is all worked out on averages For example, wind on some days produces 100% of the energy requirements of the state, and some days it may be 10%. On average, this may be 40% of the state's energy needs. Then you add solar PV, which may provide 15% on some days and 5% on others. The curre...

adelaide transport wrote:According to both the Minister and media reports it did happen in the depot. Intruders used bolt cutters to cut open a hole in the fence they then entered the depot and carried out the graffiti. So much for tight security?
Maybe they should electrify the fence when they electrify the depot? ;)

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

The point of the reduction is to encourage ongoing use of the public transport system. For those who don't need it for the full 28 days, there is also a 14 day pass now, and new users are encouraged by the removal of the card purchase fee, which was previously $5.

X Increased service frequencies, meaning less waiting time.
Actually, that already happened. Outer Harbor line is now every 30 minutes on weekends, Seaford and Gawler every 15 minutes on weekdays and increased night services start in April.

[VIS] Re: Former RAH Site (Design Competition)

This site is really a reflection on the state Labor party. Good at policy and ideas, poor at delivery. I hope that, if they do get in, that this will be the final plan and that this actually gets underway.

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport

All of the 3000-class rail cars are receiving new bogies in a program that started a year or so ago. It could be related to that, but I doubt it. None of the real cars are being converted to electric AFAIK. Given that full electrification is still years away it wouldn't be worth it as they are still...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

I read through the ALP 200 page pdf of what they were going to do as far as trams was concerned. Basically, it was continue with Adelink, but with no details of what or when. In other words, anything from nothing to something, maybe sometime. Sounds like if they have some spare money sometime, they...

Re: 2018 South Australian State Election

Great agenda. The level crossing removal program has been hugely popular in Victoria and would be popular here as well. No mention of what tram lines would be extended though? My guess is they will finally release the final or draft tram business case and then announce routes then. I think I have s...
