The other train lines in Adelaide (Gawler, Outer Harbor and Belair) are yet to be electrified (and there is no money to do this at the moment)

Well I just divided the yearly passenger count (from the large passenger information post higher up the page)....
4.45 million divided by 365 = 12,200 passengers daily
I would presume weekday day numbers to be a lot higher and the weekend count a lot lower....

Yes Australian city train lines are a hybrid metro/commuter...and when I say commuter I mean European commuter like S-Bahn in Germany (not like North American commuter - 4 trains in the morning "going downtown" and 4 trains in the evening in the reverse direction)
The Adelaide train system is probably comparable to S-Bahn train systems in smaller German cities (Leipzig, Dresden?)

No Gawler line is the busiest and should be public transport priority number one.....electrify it!

Re-posted from the Adelaide transport section of Ozscrapers

From In Daily

Quote:
The State Government will call for expressions of interest to build a $238 million lowered rail line and underpass in the north parklands to separate the Outer Harbor line from the freight route. And it could set the scene for a tram line to Adelaide Oval.

The Torrens Junction project, first approved under federal Labor, had its funding confirmed in the federal Budget this week. It will include a lowered commuter train line through the parklands and an underpass for Park Tce – eliminating the level crossing.

It will fix a pinch point, just north of Bonython Park, where the freight line and the Outer Harbor commuter line meet, commonly causing delays for freight trains and Park Tce traffic, as well as limiting the length of freight trains on the line.
However, the project raises questions about the future of the long-promised Port Adelaide tram line which would replace heavy rail to Outer Harbor.

So the South Australian government intends electrifying the Outer Harbor line?.....no its a new tram line....no...its a ......

Render for the proposed new Bowden Station (moved nearer Park Terrace for no good reason I can work out)




And another view of the crossover of the freight and commuter lines

Labor’s electrification pledge would put Gawler train line back on track a year earlier than planned


ELECTRIFICATION of the Gawler train line could begin this year, Labor will announce on Friday.

If elected into Government, Federal opposition transport spokesman Anthony Albanese says Labor would reverse the shock $76 million cut to the project, ensuring it can start a year earlier than planned.

The ancient diesel trains would be scrapped in favour of cleaner, quieter electric cars with more capacity for the 10,000 daily users.

Mr Albanese will be in Adelaide to announce that the project could now begin a year earlier than the current 2017/2018 timeframe.

“This funding complements Labor’s $500 million commitment … for the AdeLINK tram network,” he said.

Could be.
Needs a lot of work - electrification of the remaining lines using diesel trains.
A lot of the train stations are just glorified (and rundown) bus shelters. 20 or 30 of them should be rebuilt immediately.
Also grade separation is a big issue along a lot of the lines as well as the need for increased frequencies. There is political will....but no money.

Construction of new tram line to old RAH to start this year in $55m State Budget spend



CONSTRUCTION of a new tram line to the old Royal Adelaide Hospital site will begin this year, in a $55 million State Budget spend that kickstarts an extension to the eastern suburbs.

Premier Jay Weatherill has today announced the move, which comes as the State Government considers bids for a major revamp of the old RAH site when it empties next year.

The new RAH on the western end of North Tce is expected to open early next year, triggering the biggest moving house in SA history and the closure of the existing hospital.

Mr Weatherill said the tram extension would add three new stops on North Tce to service the universities and old RAH site, with future ambitions to go even further east.

The Government will contribute $50 million and Adelaide City Council $5 million.

At the federal election, Labor promised $500 million for Adelaide tram upgrades.

Mr Weatherill said the state’s Industry Participation Advocate will ensure as many local jobs and contractors as possible are used during construction of the one-kilometre extension.

A Registration of Interest for tenders as part of this stage will be called this week, with early works expected to commence in the last quarter of 2016, subject to the necessary approvals.

There are a few unanswered questions with this new extension....will 50% of the trams that currently travel towards the Entertainment Centre now divert down the eastern section of North Terrace? Or will there be a new route that goes from the Entertainment Centre down North Terrace and terminating at East Terrace?
In any case Adelaide will need more trams...splitting the current route (and frequency) will only diminish the current service, one that will surely get a huge boost when the new Royal Adelaide Hospital opens at the western end of North Terrace in 2017.

20,000 jobs tipped if Adelaide spends big on tram network, plug-in hybrid cars to be carbon-neutral city

A RADICAL plan to make Adelaide the world’s first carbon-neutral city could create more than 20,000 jobs, a State Government-commissioned report says[...]

The South Australian government has announced another (very small) tram extension....straight down King William Street and over North Terrace to the Festival Centre. 3 new trams will also be purchased. It appears construction will take place at the same time as the eastern North Terrace extension.

From In Daily
Quote:


The State Government will extend the city tramline along King William Street to the Festival Plaza and buy three new trams, costing $20 million, Treasurer Tom Koutsantonis announced this morning.

Construction on the King William Street tramline extension and the stop adjacent the Festival Plaza is due to begin early next year, with completion expected by the end of 2017, “weather permitting”.

The Festival Plaza tram spur is the major pre-announcement in the lead-up to Koutsantonis’ mid-year budget review tomorrow.

It comes five months after the Government announced a $50 million tramline was to be built along North Terrace, to carry “up to 1000 passengers each hour”.

The article also contains a video presentation of the new extensions.
