[U/C] Re: Her Majesty’s Theatre Expansion

You said it was run down and needed work, the facade was saved, which is good. It would have cost too much to renovate it all to heritage spec, which means it would sit derelict for years and eventually at some point a "fire" would make is structurally unsafe and need to be demolished. Starting in 2...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Buses

It looks like they will be removing the 265 and 263 and running a 262 / N262 renumbered as a 63. I wonder if it will go via Glenelg and Brighton or bypass both. So no buses via King George and Dunrobin, also getting rid of the messy bus routes in Seacliff.

[COM] Re: M2 Northern Connector | 15.5km | $867m

If the Northern Connector can be 110 why is the Port River Expressway 90? The Salisbury Highway (extension) is 90 and it's road is terrible so why is the PREXY 90 - it goes through the same flat terrain as the N-C.

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

Doing the maths on Google maps for trips; Pakenham to Corio 120km about 90min and Aldinga to Nuriootpa 120km about 90min. I was actually shocked that Geelong to Pakenham is only 120km. It's crazy how long Adelaide is 100km from Sellicks Beach to Hewett. Greater Melbourne stretches well over 100km fr...

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

The 2017 and 2020 drive throughs both took 66min, so the new road doesn't seem to save time in light traffic?. But the 2020 traffic looked heavier than the 2017 traffic, so maybe a 5 or 10 min saving and in peak this would probably double, add 6+ min once the middle section is done. The real point i...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

Outer South and Outer North buses are now seperate operators, this will lead to more connecting buses to trains in the Outer North https://www.adelaidemetro.com.au/Announcements/News/Welcome-to-a-new-era-in-public-transport-for-South-Australia not sure if Outer South will change too. The train contr...

Re: News & Developments: Henley Beach & Grange

Why would they put the lift to the basement right on the footpath? there's another lift inside so that one seems to only go to the carpark.

Re: News & Discussion: Laneway & Streetscape Projects

The laneways host dozens of small businesses with outdoor dinning / drinking areas, being a lane it has shady and sunny areas the customer has choices, lanes are also more intimate and personal. The Squares should be upgraded but not at the expense of the laneways, the laneways bring in people and m...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

A few things I would fix about that fantasy plan: Change route 2 to follow old alignment to Stonehouse Ave than Morphett road and take it to Glenelg on current alignment, route 2 would turn right onto Colley Terrace terminate at Wigley Reserve, route 1 would turn left onto Moseley Street and termina...

Re: News & Discussion: Squares and Parklands

There's 3 courses the N / S courses are vast, taking up most of the Western North Adelaide Parklands, you can see on Google Maps satellite the vast difference between the quality of the N and S courses, the N course is very dry. The Par 3 course is wedged in between the river / train line and War Me...

[COM] Re: Northern Connector | 14km | $1b

You have to get on at Waterloo Corner Road, does the Bolivar interchange have a northbound ramp? In the video on the Northern Connector site it doesn't look like it does.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The Grange line has many benefits. There should be three stopping patterns, Grange and Glanville all stops and an Outer Harbor express (Adelaide to Woodville) each would operate at a 30 min frequency therefore a 15 min frequency between Adelaide and Glanville and 30 to Grange and Outer Harbor. It wo...

Marion Road has a light rail crossing, it's a tram crossing, trams travel on rails therefore it's clearly a rail level crossing.

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

The Gawler line is 42km long and the Seaford line is 36km, I don't see why people are calling for a third track on the Gawler line and not the Seaford line. Both don't need a third line, what they need is regular services and an underground city tunnel linking the two up. The Gawler line also has no...

Re: News & Discussion: Other Metropolitan Developments

The numbers of units in this article is wrong, the empty block is 21 units, but there's not 3 X 45 unit blocks. There's the 21 unit block, the next block is un renovated and has 24 units and the back two blocks which are renovated have 15 and 6 units, this is from looking on Google maps. The article...
