Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Then just replace it with Uber. I mean, that will probably be cheaper than giving their mates the $1.7 million grant.

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

That's terrible news. The other thing responsible for fewer trips is unemployment. With fewer people working, fewer people need to take public transport.

Re: New Adelaide public transport hub

There is currently undercover/indoor pedestrian access from stepping off the train to the north side of Hindley Street. Ideally, this should continue under Hindley Street through to an underground/indoor bus station on Currie Street that includes a stop for every route that goes through (is that si...

Re: New Adelaide public transport hub

The question is do we want all the services under one roof, or spread among the city. What is something we can all agree on is that all the parts need to be connected. The current arrangement doesn't connect all the parts: The Parklands rail terminal is disconnected from public transport The coach t...

Not my normal viewing, but the regional rail people managed to get a piece up on Today Tonight about the impending dismantlement of the Barossa railway: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=522246301666452 The locals say they want the railway, but will they actually use it? The population in the Baros...

Morning all, Qatar Airways will deploy the A350-1000’s on its daily Doha-Adelaide flights from 29/3/20 replacing the A350-900’s.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Labor will announce this weekend that they will take back any tram or train services that are outsourced by the Liberals if they are elected at the 2022 state election. I believe the option of taking back the bus contracts will be explored too. Good news for those of us who have concluded that ther...

Re: Glenelg Ferry & Cruise ship terminal

We would have the problem of particulate and SOx pollution from cruise ships right in the heart of Glenelg. I think they're best kept out of sight, out of our air.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

More bus-train interchanges would be ideal. On the Gawler Line for example, an interchange at Islington could absorb a majority of citybound passengers on Churchill Road and Main North Road buses. Passengers continue into town via more epace-efficient trains, while that now-empty bus goes back out ...

[PRO] Re: 3-27 Walsh Street, Thebarton | 26m | 8 Levels | Apartments

The property had more units than car spaces, so there would be cars on the street. Those back streets get full during the day while people get the tram into the city. I don't understand why anything gets approved if it doesn't have at least one off street park per unit. It's not going ahead now, so ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

It seems silly to me that Qatar and Emirates fly at almost the same time to almost the same destination. One of them should move to a daytime flight.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

One of the great things about the Outer Harbor route, in particular, is that it's straight from Nairne Junction to Port Adelaide. This means the wheel profile is not a concern, you could run trams or trains of any type. Dual gauge is difficult because of the closeness of broad and standard gauge, bu...
