Re: Adelaide nation's traffic basket case

Projects such as underpasses along South Rd were a "piecemeal approach because the opportunity has been lost" for a transport blueprint. I agree with this completely. I don't think Adelaide has lost hope of developing a good transport network. The loss of the corridors that were supposed to be for ...

Adelaide's had CNG buses for some time, but I don't know the statistics. They don't seem to be bringing new ones in, they're all diesel. The drivers dont like them because there so top heavy due to the huge tanks mounted on the roof towards the front of the vehicle also they cant acclerate aswell a...

The government could easily raise 2 billion dollars worth of funds over 10 years... not a problem, hell they managed to pay off 6-7 billion dollars of debt (whatever state bank was) in about that time anyway.. and thats debt we didn't get anything from :cry: On a side note it makes sense for govern...

I think an upgrade of Adelaide Oval would be more appropriate than a new stadium on the rail yards, yes i do agree AAMI is better off as a houses then a sporting ground, as to Hindmarsh Stadium. Adelaide Oval is in a great spot as it is, a short walk to the city (if the once brought up north adelaid...

Hi new to the forums

Also some buses run on CNG but Diesel is number one choice due to the fact the have more torque to carry large amounts of passengers and travel up steep inclines with ease. Also thats why metro tickets went up last year due to the price of oil to run buses and trains.
