[COM] Re: Oaklands Park Interchange

Those photos unfortunately represent a third world standard for Adelaide. It goes to show how bad the rail network is. No it shows a government that is being clever with money. Why spend money on a station in which isn't going to be used any more. It's a waste of money and people power to fix it, t...

Re: Glenelg Tram Line Upgrade

This practice of stopping trams at brighton road has been going on for years. It has nothing to do with the amount of trams nor, the new section of track, but jetty road. In summer this road becomes a mobile car park. Normally taking 7 to 15minutes to travel in one direction. As a result of this it ...

Re: Glenelg Tram Line Upgrade

This sums up Adelaide, what a load of carp this city is. Anything new or going to be built and the city finds every way in which to blame it for all the problems. The trams aren't causing trouble in the city, if they were the roads would have been busy from the very start when the barriers went up. ...

Re: Glenelg Tram Line Upgrade

Why aren't the h class trams running as the shuttle tram all the time :?: It would be great for the tourist in town to catch one of the old in town and not the new ones. the photos of that tram in town look great.

Re: Glenelg Tram Line Upgrade

Can't wait. Trams are great, another step for Adelaide. Just an idea, Ive always thought a Tram line down Rundle street would be sweet, turn Rundle street into a one way street for cars also? Good idea or bad idea? Bad idea sorry, the tramline would have to go straight through Rundle Mall. Which wo...

Re: Glenelg Tram Line Upgrade

I've done a fair bit of travelling on the Glenelg line at those times and I have seen how quick they fill up. I have seen it on one occasion get filled to crush load (ie seating and standing load at maximum capacity) by Goodwood at one point. The one issue that I can think of is the lack of spare t...

Re: Glenelg Tram Line Upgrade

This IS what the next fight is against and why people need to keep fighting the tram. Extending it out into the suburbs is a nightmare in Adelaide. The only viable place which was found to be not worth the bother is to go to O'Connell st! It's the only reason the tram was meant to be put down in th...

Re: Glenelg Tram Line Upgrade

How exactly is this tramline to no where going to increase public patronage to work? It's simply not, that's an argument from rail lovers. It really doesn't change how anyone gets into work, you are not going to suddenly stop driving and start catching the train in because you can now get out and w...

Re: Glenelg Tram Line Upgrade

As normal the whinging party lead by martin is already saying last night was a failure; But Opposition Leader Martin Hamilton Smith said it was not a minor glitch. "Last night the H-model tram couldn't negotiate the curbing on North Tce and King William St and it hit the concrete," he said. "They (t...
