Re: New bus network arising from CSELR (L2/L3) opening

I noticed hidden away in the Inner West changes announcements, that some bus stops along Anzac Pde in Kensington and Kingsord that were closed for LR construction will be reopened on 25/10.

Re: Sydney Metro - Tallawong to Bankstown

It would be convenient for NW Metro passengers to transfer to CQ or T4 trains without going all the way to Central?

Re: Sydney Metro - Tallawong to Bankstown

But the "Pitt St" station will also have an entrance in Bathurst St.To pander to the "save the T3 line" ignorants who claim people will need to change at Sydenham or Central to get to Town Hall, why not call it "Town Hall Metro"? "Central Station" bus stops are spread from Railway Square around to F...

That is a common symptom with Facebook posters.

Re: CBD & South East Light Rail

I looked today, there was a patched section about 1 metre square. But there is a much larger area marked out in multiple colours of spray paint right across the 4 lanes, so perhaps more work is planned?

They are numbered 01 to 60.

The actual fleet numbers within the LR fleets may be 2201 to 2260

TOs have been very active on the LR over the past couple of weeks. They have been on nearly every trip I have made during daytime, including weekends. They don't seem to have caught anyone.

https://transportnsw.info/news/2020/l3-kingsford-line-partial-closure Why does L3 turn back at Central instead of Moore Park? As we don't know what this refers to. I can only assume that a transfer from tram to bus at Moore Park is not really convenient, so it is better to put people onto buses at ...

Re: $1.7 billion order for new Waratah trains signed

When mentioning Queensland, I wasn't just thinking of Bustech, Volgren too, which had a facility in NSW but it was let go for lack of orders. Bustech is located close to the border, so there is a good chance that some of the employees live in NSW, and even some NSW businesses are supplying materials.

Re: $1.7 billion order for new Waratah trains signed

The current policy seems to be total abandonment of local sourcing. It perplexes me for example that they're so willing to buy large numbers of buses from Queensland, probably more than Queensland buys itself! No, the contracts to build buses are let via a competitive tendering system, with Bustech...

Not uncommon for individual cars in a set to be isolated.
