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

Hopefully they use this new motorway for buses too. Buses from around Happy Valley could be express into the city. Do we know anything about public transport that will use the motorway?

Re: Cheap Airport O-Bahn

The idea of just diverting water to drains in nearby streets suggests you haven't seen just how much water flows through that creek when it gets flowing after heavy rain. That's one suggestion out of several. At present you are talking about a 1-in-a-100 year flood situation as you'll probably know...

Re: News & Discussion: Cycling

There should really be a tram stop up there with the stairs connecting the train station to the tram stop. I still don't understand why this wasn't done when they upgraded the Glenelg line before the flexity trams came in to service. I'm thinking a. they'd need to put stairs on the south side of th...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

You can't remove Glanville it provides access to Semaphore, it should be updated and renamed Semaphore or Semaphore Road. It's also got a third track for terminating trains and storage. In hindsight, the Outer Harbor line should be in the middle of Lefevre Peninsula. The current location of the lin...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

Let's hope the station upgrades include pedestrian upgrades. Every station should have at least four entrances, one on each corner. The fewer entrances each station has, the longer it takes to walk to the platform and the fewer people take public transport. It doesn't matter how flashy the stations ...

Apparently R2P is several months ahead of schedule. hopefully all the experience gained from all the recent projects using prefab bridge spans will flow on to level crossing removals It would be great to see level crossing removals addressed around Adelaide, like you say there's a lot of recent exp...

Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Contracts, Service & Policy

Following the failed attempt at Bus Network reform by the Government mid last year, does anyone know what the plans are for future Bus Network reform? There seems to have been no mention of the SA Public Transport Authority (SAPTA) of late. Or is it a case of waiting until after the March 2022 Stat...

Re: Cheap Airport O-Bahn

1NEEDS2POST not sure if you received a private message sent to you back on November 22, 2020. Did some quick concept drawings (cross sections) of light rail to the airport using the Keswick Creek drain, which I've been advocating for many years. I took a long break, I've been meaning to come back t...

Re: News & Discussion: Roads & Traffic

I imagine the modifications to create a "trackless tram" from a normal bus are at least as significant as to make an O-bahn bus. The O'bahn corridor would not be suitable for a "conventional busway" as the track would not be wide enough without some kind of automatic guide. Fair question about trai...

Re: Tunnel under the airport ASAP!

Too bad you didn't measure the depth! Neither did you. It looks deep enough from Google Streetview. drain.png Even if it needs to be lowered, that's still much cheaper than buying up neighbouring properties or building a tunnel. I suggest you delete the new thread. You seem like a nice person to be...

Two O-Bahn tracks plus clearances comes out to 6 m wide. I've measured the width of the drain on Google Earth....

Cheap Airport O-Bahn

Adelaide doesn't have a dedicated public transport corridor from the airport to the city. Fortunately, there is a corridor used for a drain that goes between the airport and Mile End. This drain can fit a cheap O-Bahn that takes buses from the city to the airport, bypassing all of the traffic. Keswi...

Years ago, there were plans for a southern suburbs O-Bahn. Well, this motorway is just as good! :banana: What are the plans for bus routes to use the motorway? This could drastically speed up bus routes from the southern suburbs, such as Aberfoyle Park and Morphett Vale. At the moment, those bus rou...
