NSW seeks Newcastle light rail advisor

Rolling out of the new integrated Transport for NSW signage and branding is continuing across the entire state. Some of these 'lollipop' signs look really good lit up at night but I can't seem to find any flickr photos of them.



T = Train
B = Bus
F = Ferry
L = Light Rail

All transport vehicles and stop/station signs are also being colour coded accordingly. Buses and Ferries have been blue and green for some time so all that's required is a new logo for many of them.

I visited Sydney earlier this year and completely fell in love with the silver-yellow trains!

The idea of the letters for transport has been in Stockholm for many years interestingly. We have the T, B, J, L for our system (Tunnelbana, Buss, Järnväg, Lokalbanen) for example.

Well it's not that original or unique, lol. Also, they couldn't combine the L and T signs on one pole? Come on now.

Usually, more wheels are located at the back of the bus where the engine is located... This is interesting.

On the back it has double tire wheels so there are the same number of tires despite having fewer wheels.

You normally have double rear axles on longer buses. These buses were designed to stay within the 'standard' 12.5m bus length. So the extra axle is at the front and is steerable. The reason a 3rd axle is required on a standard length buse is to keep within axle load requirements, which in most parts of Australia are well below the rest of the world.

Yeah they're already operating on a few of the busier bus routes. Mostly Hills area buses I think.

They were probably arranged by different parts of the Ministry of Transport, which don't talk to each other.
