Re: Sydney Metro - Tallawong to Bankstown

I'm surprised Pitt Street is not included as it's the one station name that I would have thought needs a review. Perhaps this means they are planning something else for it though?

Bradfield Station anyone?

Re: Parramatta light rail

There's still no guarantee that Stage 2 will actually happen any time soon - things have stalled as far as I can tell.

Re: Timetable and Route Changes, 23/8/2020

I missed these changes in August - I'm surprised they didn't merge N91 and N92 rather than create a new route.

I doubt they will introduce something completely outside the plan - I could see them fast-tracking the extension to Macarthur or Tallawong though.

Re: Northconnex

Yes, agreed trucks are the focus which is why it's strange that buses get mentioned at all in the signs below, for example, that are about to start popping up on all approaches. I wouldn't have thought buses are much of an issue at all.

Re: Northconnex

Thanks for that!

A lot of the signage and promotional material mentions that the tunnel will be taking trucks and buses off Pennant Hills Road but are any public bus routes actually going to use the tunnel? Could a 600X route be worthwhile between Hornsby, Carlingford and Parramatta?

Re: Other rail possibilties

Maybe they don't want to risk the NIMBYs but Frenchs Forest seems like a huge missed opportunity in the plan - it's an area that could do with better transport options and more density in the next 30 years.

Re: WS Airport Metro

The 801 that will run between the airport and Liverpool when it opens would need a major frequency upgrade from the 7 services a day 4 east bound and 3 west bound that it currently does Will be interesting to see the balance between public and private buses.

Re: WS Airport Metro

Would be interesting to know in the circumstances and with Federal money incoming whether Gladys tried to push for an immediate extension either to Tallawong or Macarthur rather than only the middle section.

Re: STA Observations 2020

One thing they might need to address if frequency is increased on the 533 is that right hand turn from Pacific Highway to Mowbray Road (no right turn, buses excepted) since it would mean relatively more traffic getting blocked by a bus turning right there, given there are no green arrows for that t...

Re: NSW Railway Observations 2020

It seems a little pointless having Opal gates (as opposed to readers) at the Metro stations when, due to there being no staff, they need to leave one gate permanently open just in case there is a special event with integrated ticketing or another access requirement.

Re: Light rail gets the green light: stage 1 UNSW to CBD

I gave it a go this afternoon from City to Randwick and return at about 4.15pm. Despite an approx. 15-20 minute gap from the previous Randwick service it was fairly quiet and busiest in the CBD section. Big Bash on Wednesday night will be an interesting test. The TNSW event page says that there will...

Do we think there will be any farewell events for the line (F1 runs or something) - or kept low-key? I'd certainly like to head out and travel the line while I can considering I never have before.

Which is still preferable to platform indicator screens showing Hornsby in both directions for some T1/T9 services on the North Shore!
