Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

It's about people thinking they're more entitled to a service because they travel further. What we need is a higher frequency service so people use it, express services will cause longer wait times, especially services that express a lot of stations. A minimum 15 minute service is needed during the...

[VIS] Re: Interstate Trains at Adelaide Railway Station

No, one that can be shared. But as said above, a City Loop could open up ARS to make it more feasible. Make ARS for feasible for what? If we build an underground CBD loop, ARS as it currently stands is all but redundant! The solution should NOT be a rail loop which will only get congested in under ...

Re: Vision: CBD Underground Rail Loop

Now that the Seaford and Tonsley Lines are electrified the State Government should be selling the land above especially in areas such as Ascot Park, Oaklands, Hove (once grade separation is done), Noarlunga Centre, Seaford. A underground city rail loop with stations in the right places could help b...

[U/C] Re: Flinders Rail Link

Either way, I doubt the Seaford Line will have all trains run express from Woodlands Park. The inner portion still needs a decent frequency, so I imagine that, if both the Flinders and Seaford lines will run at a 30 minute frequency at night and on weekends, they will combine for a 15 minute freque...

Re: Great Southern train from Adelaide to Brisbane: Australia's new luxury train unveiled

Here's a thought - to make it really unique!! Get it pulled by a 'c38' to Albury, a Vic.' s' class to SA and the '621' to Adelaide. That'll get the real historical element in if high speed is not a major issue.This sort of thing is getting quite a bit of appeal in Britain. Trouble is the associated...

'Left-turn slip lanes to be removed at Adelaide intersections following four pedestrian deaths' reports ABC News It's about bloody time, but I'd note there are some other dangerous ones not mentioned for removal. The problem with slip lanes in Adelaide is that the pedestrian crossings are poorly ma...

Then just replace it with Uber. I mean, that will probably be cheaper than giving their mates the $1.7 million grant.

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

That's terrible news. The other thing responsible for fewer trips is unemployment. With fewer people working, fewer people need to take public transport.

There is currently undercover/indoor pedestrian access from stepping off the train to the north side of Hindley Street.

Re: New Adelaide public transport hub

The question is do we want all the services under one roof, or spread among the city. What is something we can all agree on is that all the parts need to be connected. The current arrangement doesn't connect all the parts: The Parklands rail terminal is disconnected from public transport The coach t...
