This site is better off being used as a pocket park, where you could station a couple of food vans, some tables and chairs and nice trees.

[PRO] Re: Torrens Road Grade Separation

A rail bridge won't work because of the gradient that freight trains require, which are different to passenger trains - which can handle steeper slopes.

Agreed. It seems likely that more will follow after Brighton and Torrens commence.

[PRO] Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

I don’t see why Churchill Road would need to be grade separated as well? The intersection with Torrens Road could still be a standard T junction, but it would require a lot of earthworks to lift it up at least 5 or so metres from its current level in order to provide an appropriate slope for the ove...

[PRO] Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

I don’t understand how the Torrens Road level crossing removal will cost $200m given that the land reservation already exists for the road overpass and there would be minimal disruption to both rail and road traffic? Also obvious Brighton Road will be a rail overpass. Property acquisition for a road...

[U/C] Re: North-South Motorway

$250m surely would have to include property acquisition for any property that is affected by all three options being investigated - particularly at the River Torrens end of T2T and near interchanges at SDBR/HBR and and at Cross Roads.

Very shortsighted not to allow a reserve / provision for the extension of the railway line.

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

They really should allow payment for single-trip journeys via eftpos at a standard metrocard ticket machine. This small convinience, which I'm sure wouldn't cost too much to retrofit, would see patronage increase by a bit.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

They really should make a reservation beyond the line terminus to future proof any rail extension. Any development in the way will just stuff things up.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

A couple of routes that I can think of that could be rationalised is to scrap the 150 to Port Adelaide, given it is basically a duplication of the train line, and have the 333 route take over the 150 route between Port Adelaide and Outer Harbour in a loop.
