Hence you need a lot of space for the stockpile as at peak it will have thousands of segments in it

Agree there shouldn't be that many left with the limited amount of tunnelling to go
So when and where will they start stockpiling the ones for the next line ?

Two TBM launch sites, the other at Bays precinct.

When they get the contractor on board. It takes 15-18 months from contract award to design a TBM, manufacture it, ship it, assemble it, commission it and start tunnelling. It takes 6-9 months to get a segment factory up and running. Thus leaving a decent 6-9 month window to stockpile segments and a few months longer when they’re not being drawn down that fast as the machines get going

You can lead a horse to water but you cannot make it drink and as parliament is a reflection of the public then if the general public don’t get it then neither would the government.

It only needs 1% 0f greater Sydney to buy a $1m Parrahub unit and it could easily be built.

Older people saving on maintenance or just need transport and services also some very busy younger ones may just want to get to work quickly particularly if they are on call working in the building or even bus drivers who would have 50 bus layovers around the surrounding park for when trains fail.

As Zoom says you need slow trains to get you to a fast train and even though everyone wants a fast train stopping at their place and go straight to their destination it does not work like that.

86% of our population live in the 8 biggest cities in Australia and people have voted with their feet so either we make Sydney stretch from Newcastle to Wollongong or we grow Canberra and Albury who have the advantage of cheap road transport.

After watching Michael Portillo: Housing Crisis https://www.sbs.com.au/guide/program...housing-crisis I assume you think it would become a concrete ghetto.

It was interesting that in the show the first public housing was only rented to people who had a job so you did not end up with generational jobless.

Assuming that is what makes you and others so mad the problem would have to be addressed.

If you click on the Claire Rogers link in the article it takes to the background of Craig Rogers. I wonder if that accounts for the looks on the two girls' faces?

I get it now! Eddy is a Nexus 10 model created by CSIRO. He was born as a 67 year old with unlimited lifespan. The idea behind the Nexus 10 project is getting things done by never giving up. Compromises, relative to previous Nexus generations, needed to be made to get the unlimited lifespan.

Update: my contacts in CSIRO tell me Eddy is a prototype. He gets caught in infinite loops on silly things. The production series Nexus 10s have safeguards against this behaviour. They have been proved reasonably successful as they are now ruling several countries.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Metro trains on fire off the shoulder of the M4. I watched crackheads' pipes glitter in the dark near the Opal gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

I am 75 and the only ones in the CSIRO I have spoken to are the Queensland Smart cut guy who asked me to bring up some sandstone to demonstrate his diamond coated picks that only wore 2% that of the conventional ones and the other one at Mogo bushfire test site when I asked him what he thought of my reflective emergency fire shelter and both were very interested.

All my life I have written letters with ideas and if it were not for my silly letters you may not have the Sydney Opera house car park or still be spending an extra $2m per year each longwall trying to keep the tailgate open.

North Sydney / Victoria Cross South

I'll aim to get a better picture later this week, but you can see down into the cavern, and see the tunnel i presume to head towards the platforms
