Re: O-Bahn Closure due to bus accident

The Rigid seemed to have not stopped in time and ran up the rear of the artic. Two ambulances were present. The artic only had minor visable damage and was parked north of Klemzig interchange in bus layover zone, however the rigid was much more worse for wear and was stopped before the brigde with ...

Re: Molotov cocktail hurled into O'Bahn bus

Either way, the exact sources are irrelevant - the fact that you want it suggests that you want to argue the point (or, worse still, the source) which, frankly, doesn't interest me, and I'm sure like sources could be found by the interested party.... No, I work in an academic institution. "Facts" a...

Re: Molotov cocktail hurled into O'Bahn bus

I think you will find that most dictionary definitions of terrorism include the qualifier that the act is committed for a political, religious or related reason. If it can be proved that the act occurred in order to make a point about a certain political issue, eg. Free Tibet, then it could be claim...

Re: Sorry - this is not right branch:Crouzet Launceston

One good point, so long as the metro insignia is facing up, they don't have to follow the arrow. Its not as troublesome as following the arrow as we do in Adelaide. Where did you get that idea? From the website: Put your ticket into the validator - follow the arrows on the ticket to make sure it’s ...

Re: Train thing on Ch7.

Put stop signs at railway crossings where there's no light i.e make it compulsory to stop even if there's no train coming. It's a waste of money to put lights etc at crossings in country areas where there's few train services per day or even per week. Yeah but the problem is that when you're barrel...

Eddy was this changeover because of a bus with a broken window perhaps? I heard some radio chatter re this around 6 pm tonight when I was on my way home. Sounded like a few shifts were being rearranged.

Yep, time to get your hands out of your pants boys. Someone do a feasibility study, run the numbers and then get back to me with something concretely positive and maybe I'll change my mind. The report on the tram extension had it running almost cost/benefit neutral for 500m of track. The benefits we...

Nope, it does exist. Frome Street intersects with Rundle Street between Grenfell and North Tce, unless the CBD has radically changed since I was in there around 1800 this evening. Perhaps towards Rundle is more accurate then. Not to be pedantic. :lol: without curteous drivers, it can take up to 4 c...

Another small thing which may help congestion for C's, J's, T's and any other service using Frome St, is to can the right turn from Frome to Rundle. we remember what happened when they tried to stop the T500 down to RAH. Can't remove a turn that doesn't exist. I assume you mean from Frome to North ...

Knowing the traffic sequencing on these roads I daresay it would have been quicker to walk down King William from Grenfell and board at the Festival Centre rather than board earlier and go through the detour!!

O'Connell St might work but Melbourne St is a dog at the best of times - too much traffic for to little road and the tram would make it worse. This is one of the issues that Adelaide desperately needs to address. There are problems on all the feeder roads to the city at peak hour simply because the...
