South Australian Government to spend millions of dollars to buy seven-year-old trams
February 18, 2017 9:30pm



MILLIONS of taxpayers’ dollars will be used to buy seven-year-old trams to service the expanded city network, the State Government has revealed.

The three trams – built in 2010 – will help carry passengers on the network that is set to grow this year with an extra 100m of line down King William Rd to the Festival Plaza and along North Tce to the East End

Some new pictures of the O-Bahn tunnel construction.
All photos come from The Adelaide Advertiser.


The city centre is to the right of the picture



Coming out of the eastern parklands and heading north along Dequetteville Terrace



A closer view of Dequetteville Terrace interface.
The new apartments in the background have nothing to do with the 0-Bahn, the buses will not be stopping until the Klemzig Interchange, which is 3 kilometres to the north-east.


And here is a newspaper article explaining in more detail

New proposal from the South Australian government returning the Port Dock Railway station to the Adelaide Metro network. The current Port Dock building is part of the National Railway Museum.

From The Advertiser
http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/n...74df13e2f0b948





If this proposal goes ahead, then the current Port Adelaide station should be renamed "Commercial Road"(as it used to be called) and the new station should be "Port Adelaide"
This should stop any confusion about which "station" get you to the heart of the Port.

Money saver.....enabling the extension to be built for a mere $80 million Australian dollars......next to nothing compared to bigger projects happening in Sydney and Melbourne. The train line will (probably) never be extended any further and so a single track will surfice to the terminus.

A passing loop can easily be built one station back from the new terminus, allowing more frequent trains (15 minutes by day and every 30 minutes by weekends/night is likey to be the best achievable frequencies)

Adelaide Metro (the transport authority that runs public transport in the Adelaide metropolitan area) recently ran a competition where members of the public could send in their photos of the state of South Australia, and the winners would appear on the Adelaide metro smart card......and here they are.

From The Adelaide Advertiser

Quote:

Hallet cove is an Adelaide beachside suburb, where glaciers scraped their way along the foreshore millions of years ago.


Piccaninie Pond are about 700 km southeast of Adelaide, they are part of a larger limestone caves complex.


The River Murray is the only real river we have in South Australia (due to lack of rainfall)


The River Torrens runs through the centre of Adelaide, it is really a lake, if it wasn't dammed it would a (very) small creek.


Pig statues in Rundle Mall in the city centre, probably the most photographed statues in Adelaide.


This heritage steam train runs along the coast about 80 kms south of Adelaide.



Winners of Metrocard photograph competition revealed

THEY are a welcome distraction from the drudgery of the daily commute; six uplifting images of South Australia gracing public transport Metrocards.

The Transport Department ordered a repeat of a competition to find winning photographic entries after the success of an inaugural round of pictorial designs replaced bland graphic design logos in February.

Winning images from 130 entries were Peter Michalak’s image of the Cockle Train, Luke Baade’s Piccaninnie Ponds, Ashley Hutchison’s River Murray at Bowhill, and Cindy Dennison’s Rundle Mall pigs. Craig Shillabeer had two winning entries — Sugarloaf Hallett Cove, and River Torrens.

Proposal to extend the O-Bahn from Tea Tree Plaza to Golden Grove using a widened Golden Grove Road.
From The Advertiser

Quote:
O-Bahn extension will mean buses take passengers from city to Golden Grove in Adelaide’s northeast

THE O-Bahn busway would be extended from Tea Tree Plaza to Golden Grove in a proposal to better connect Adelaide’s outer northeast with the CBD.

The project, beginning with an eight-month feasibility study costing $500,000 to be announced today, would be the most significant upgrade to the renowned O-Bahn system since it was built in 1986.

“The study will assess potential routes, engineering requirements and likely demand for the proposed extension, as well as undertake detailed economic and financial modelling,’’ Transport Minister Stephen Mullighan said.
