Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

Hey 'adelaide transport' - Why don’t you arrange for a media statement in conjunction with the new Transport Minister to be released? I have run up a draft for you. ‘The passenger numbers using the O'Bahn services have increased x% YoY from 2017 to 2018, this has been mainly due to the success of th...

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

https://www.adelaidemetro.com.au/Announcements/Planned-Disruptions/Bus-timetable-changes-22-April-and-29-April-2018 Additionally there is pressure to provide more direct routes from suburbs via the O'Bahn rather than terminating at o'Bahn interchanges for transfers. Just as the political pressure to...

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

The long term plan for the PT corridor has to take into consideration any future transport links and potential stops, for example if a new City tram loop will use East Tce or Frome St, if a new City underground train loop will have a station at Hindmarsh Sq or will there be a western component of a ...

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

One of the options being considered is the possibility of running Bus Lanes in the Centre of Grenfell & Currie Streets with Super Stops east of Frome St, near Gawler Pl, immediately west of KW St and potentially one immediately west of Light Square. Each Super Stop would have platforms on each side...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

If people who have nothing better to do but run around taking photos and keeping track of trams and trains, not to mention take such a high interest in something they aren't involved in they can quote standards, types of metal used, and specific components that have no relevance in their life, have...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

If the Tram extension gets the final Project Completion signature accepting those leaning / bending poles, I can foresee 'The Sadvertiser' turning this into a major news item. That news coverage will once again turn Adelaide into a laughing stock. We may as well go the whole hog and open the line wi...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

About once a week I take a walk along North Tce to see how the Tram extension is going. The 'Leaning Poles' still concern me. I know there has been plenty of comment on here about the 'bending poles' but has anyone received any formal feedback if this has to be addressed, before State Govt signs fin...

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

Why completing the N-S MW and a new non-stop link between SE FW via Cross Road makes sense - Removing large heavy freight off Portrush Rd improving safety and reducing noise & pollution with stop/starting at intersections through suburbia. Reduced travel time and less fuel to Adelaide depots in NW M...

[U/C] Re: News & Discussion: South Road / North-South Corridor

Cross Road needs to be the grade separated link between the SE Freeway and the (new) North-South MW. One of the main reasons why is because the majority of large heavy road freight trucks travelling by road via Adelaide in tonnage terms are on the Adelaide to Melbourne route that begin/ end their jo...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

If the Lib’s go ahead with an extension to North Adelaide they may as well consider going to the northern end of the Parklands having a final stop adjacent the Aquatic Centre in the section of Prospect Road between Barton Tce and Fitzroy Tce. Reason being, if Adelaide does bid for the Commonwealth G...

[VIS] Re: interstate passenger trains back to the Adel Railway Station

Adelaide Railway Station would be ideal for interstate and regional trains (If we had a network like Victoria's). Southern Cross platforms 1-8 are not too dissimilar in length to the ARS platforms. I'd like to see the metro services go underground, at new Platforms 10-13 (Seaford-Gawler through 10 ...
