Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

I thought the licenses were based on the number of pivot points? What can I drive on a HR class licence? A motor vehicle authorised to be driven by a licence of a preceding class. A motor vehicle (including an articulated bus but not including any other articulated motor vehicle) with 3 or more axl...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

According to Google Maps, the width of the Coast to Vines rail corridor is around 40-60 metres. This is significantly wider than many sections of the existing double track rail network. There should be no problem accommodating a double track railway. The corridor was probably originally created wit...

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

Also, reduced frequency along Melbourne Street would not be beneficial for that strip. You could say that about the other O-Bahn routes. After all, the city end of the original O-Bahn track could have connected with Melbourne St, but they chose not to. With my proposal, you could have a stop at the...

Re: Should Adelaide bid for a theme park...'a la' Disneyland etc.

It could use the old Holden factory. Just reprogram the industrial robots to throw people around and you've got fun rides.

Re: Mount Barker Obahn

The city-Glen Osmond Rd segment will be the most time saving segment with current buses. This is because it takes buses out of the most congested areas. Glen Osmond Rd might even be able to be widened to support bus lanes rather than O-Bahn track. What I'm wondering is what is the ultimate speed lim...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Whatever they do for the Flinders extension, I hope its with a vision to extend the line further in the future. Sure, it doesn't need to be extended further now, but I hope this extension doesn't get boxed in with development. The vision I have is to extend it to the old Willunga railway alignment. ...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

Flinders University has just started running a driverless shuttle bus that runs on public roads. Anyone can book a ride on it.

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

It's not only in the implementation though, the operation suffers due to the overly cautious approach.-Speeds are painfully slow. The big thing slowing down the Glenelg tram is stop spacing. Stops are about 400 m apart, similar to bus stops. However, unlike a bus it often stops at every stop. A bus...

Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

The new tunnel has opened up more opportunities. Similar to buses joining the O-Bahn at the interchanges, buses could join just for the new section. Other bus routes from the north-east could join the O-Bahn on the city ring route. For example, buses from Hampstead Rd and North East Rd. Example rout...
