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

Depends how it is done... The preferred scenario includes new rapid bus lines linking strategic centres, employment hubs and the Harbour CBD. This will be a network of high frequency, on-road bus services benefitting from infrastructure that delivers vehicle priority and high quality stops, with si...

Re: NSW Railway Observations 2020

Intercity services should not stop at more than 2 or 3 stops (max) in the suburban basin. One reasonable exception would be a day’s first and last services where there is no alternative suburban service operating at that time. It was unreasonable when CCNs stopped at both Eastwood and Epping (and We...

It is a rail replacement so should only stop at railway stations. However there are selected stops on selected routes which are in additional to railway station stops.

Re: New bus contracts to drive improved services (as from 2020)

If CDC has 4 and 7, well then a bus should be able to run routes in both regions. Lots of the R7 routes out of Parramatta surely would be better off operating out of Northmead than Ryde. Lots of R6 routes would be better off out of Port Botany than Tempe, if TSA was to get Region 9. The argument mi...

Re: Opal Discussion and Observations

The loss in revenue from the off-peak additional discount should be offset by more peak fare revenue. Considering how packed pre-6.30am trains can be, I think a 6-9:30 morning peak fare period probably would have been better than 6.30-10am.

If it is a heavy rail plan, it won’t happen. It won’t get the investment from the Liberals unless it is a metro line where the developers get to hyper-densify the corridor.

Extra costs? There might be a small extra rate for the driver but an artic will do almost the work of two rigids, thus saving the cost of one extra bus and one extra driver. There would be few routes that an artic couldn't run. I think it's more to do with having to get prior TfNSW approval which i...

As T8 also uses Platforms 3 and 4 in the Peak and suspect not capacity on 5 and 6 to shift it to mix with T4.
Trains can terminate on 3 and 4 at Sydenham as required.
