Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

15 stops on the Glenelg line as opposed to 11 on the OH line to Port Adelaide...so yes it will take longer, but given the 4x extra stops, it is remarkably close in running time. Once again, if a CBD tunnel is constructed to accomodate the OH train, then it does weigh in heavy rails favour. Any idea...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Pedestrian access is still a problem for many stations in Adelaide. This discussion about North Adelaide is one example. The thing is, it's very inexpensive to solve compared to other infrastructure projects. There are plans to remove level crossings from Adelaide, but few talk about grade separatio...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Here's a radical idea to make people shift to trains: make it free. It may save the government money since they will be spending less on building and maintaining roads. Plus no need to enforce fares, no need to have fare terminals in trains. I think the Gawler Line will see many of the benefits elec...

Re: New Madrid Style Food Market on East End

This is a really interesting idea, if not at Electranet, there are other buildings that could be re-purposed. I think if it was a late night food venue, it would be a great addition to the East End. Central Market could be the main market during the day and East End the main market in the evening.

Re: Magill/Portrush Road Intersection Upgrade | $98m

There needs to be median bus lanes on Magill Rd from Portrush Rd into the city. That will relieve most of the congestion for buses and it won't cost much. Seeing buses fly past while sitting in traffic will encourage a shift to public transport too. I agree in principle, but Magill Road is quite na...

Re: Extending the Riverbank and moving railtracks underground

Welcome to the forum! This has been discussed on this forum before and it's something that I think will happen eventually. Usually, this idea is combined with a CBD rail tunnel to connect Gawler/Outer Harbor/Grange with Seaford/Tonsley/Belair lines without terminating. The government has discussed t...

Re: Relocating the Government House

I don't want to see our heritage destroyed, but also locking up that land for the viceroy is a waste. Move the Governor to somewhere less disruptive and then we can re-purpose Government House. Government House could become a museum and the surrounding garden a public park.

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Transport

I think the mid-term future for the rail corridor could lie somewhere between all the recent posts on here - how about extending Adelaide Metro services one more stop to Concordia from Gawler Central, integrating the new station with a bus interchange that would serve both LinkSA and private operat...
