Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Has everyone on this forum lost their mind? I can tell you exactly what’s going to happen with the OH line in the next 20-years - nothing! No light rail, no electrification. Just things the way they are. Can we please stop dreaming of spur lines coming off every which way from this one line. Yes th...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Not really sure where there are train services to cut considering some were only extended to half hourly on weeknights and weekends a few months ago.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Very much doubt an airport express or airport only tram or light rail would work or could be justified on present arrival / departure figures. If the main line was constructed to Henley Beach or West Lakes with a spur from the airport to the main line (like the Port Dock extension will be) perhaps, ...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Thanks Llessur2002 - some great pics! I'm trying to remain optimistic like almost everybody else on here, but who in DPTI thought it would be remotely acceptable for the poles to lean in like they are, even just a bit - despite them being safe and all that. It's not good enough for our premier stree...

From today https://i.imgur.com/JEo89Fn.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Bf3Uj3t.jpg Great shots Ben - with regards to your first pic, if you'd taken that picture 15 years ago the only tall buildings you'd have have had would have been the Hilton Hotel and the Wakefield Tower - is that correct? Tells us quit...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

If you don't count the University of Adelaide, the University of South Australia, Rundle Street, the Botanic Gardens, Rymill Park, The National Wine Centre, museum & art gallery, and our two soon-to-be tallest buildings, it guess it might go to nowhere (!). No doubt in a few months the popularity of...

I had this problem last year - I think with an iPhone the key is to "square" the photo in the editing bit on your phone and then post and then they should appear the right way up.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The 3000 class- yes they are diesel trains but they are good trains. The majority were built in the 1990s- they were released progressively from 1987 to 1996. I remember as a kid waiting for the train at Munno Para and hoping we'd get either a "New Train" (the 3000 class) or "Jumbo" instead of a "Re...

Thanks Ben - that's an amazing pic. Really shows how dominant Kodo will be in the area and how it and other buildings will compete with Westpac House on the skyline.

Easily pleased. It's hard to hate a building which is ostensibly a visual continuation of the law courts building. Unless you hate that too, then go nuts :lol: I haven't had a chance to see this in the flesh. But in photos taken on overcast days the concrete western side looks more interesting than...

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

Thanks Norman - I'm trying to work out if these are concrete flagstones or more higher quality slate / granite pavers like where Bank Street meets North Terrace?

Re: U/C: Electrification & Upgrade of the Adelaide Rail Network

Can anyone actually confirm that we are going to receive the $220 milllion from the Feds for the completion of the Gawler line electrification, as in is it in the forward estimates, or is it just a future unaccounted for promise?

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Re: parts of North Tce streetscape affected by tram works, I messaged Adelaide City Council about the state of the pavements and trees on the southern side. The temporary bitumen will be replaced with slate again soon and they are working with the State Government to reinstate mature trees along tho...

The flaps in Topham Mall are being removed.
Thanks Norman - does that mean the vines have grown sufficiently to start covering the top of the structure? Or have they just given up on the flappy things?

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport

Quite a good article about the new train timetables in yesterday's - 11 April - InDaily. Like most on here I suppprted the continuation of the Weatherill Government but new transport minister Stephan Knoll does seem to at least be open minded about trying new things- he even states that the new gove...
