I believe the bridge will accommodate double-stacked trains according to the last community meeting.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Nando's has closed on Hindley Street. Sushi Hub is opening a second mall shopfront where the convenience store used to be next to Charlesworth Nuts. Melbourne skate shop Fast Times has opened on Gawler Place (south). Dang! That means there's no CBD presence for Nando's now right? Yes, which is very...

[U/C] Re: 203 North Terrace | 119m | 35 levels | Student Accom

It had been quite annoying, especially for buses travelling along North Terrace. Many end up being 10-15 minutes late from this bit alone. They should be using the tram lane while this is under construction.

The site has a rather large footprint, so there should be a lot of apartments. Should be interesting to see how tall this one will be.

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

New gantries and Variable Message Displays have been installed along the southern part of the Superway, as well as South Road Northbound just before Regency Road. Most of the new road seems to be in place, so I suspect cars will be travelling on the new section and the bridge in the next 3-6 months.

[PRO] Re: Hove Level Crossing Removal | $171m

If they elevated the rail to Jetty Road they would also need to lift Brighton Station, which would be more complex due to its layout. It would also increase the ongoing maintenance costs for the elevated station.

Anyway, I think the changes are great, but it's still disappointing to not see a station upgrade when Oaklands and Bowden got new stations when nearby roads were grade separated.

I was at the community information session today where an updated design of the overpass was presented. New videos, renders and maps will be uploaded next week. Key changes include: - Increase of the bridge span to include more community space and facilities under the bridge - Connection of Exeter T...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The railway station refurbishment is going well. The footpath along the North Terrace frontage is being dug up and Station Road is now mostly open. The little shopfronts at the very top of the ramp are being torn out and are pretty much gone. No pictures unfortunately, almost missed my train [emoji...

How long doe it take to build 1 km of a free way lane ????????????? why are we doing 45 km/h when no one is working on it.? I'm not sure when you've been there, but it has always been 60km/h whenever I've driven past. The road surface is very undulating and lanes have been narrowed to accommodate t...

[U/C] Re: M2 North-South Motorway

Still not really sure why they didn't put Regency either over or under the motorway instead of the other way around. It would have required a narrower overpass, and would have taken away yet another undulation on the motorway. You still need to accommodate the actual intersection of South Road (Sur...
