There was also a separate CityRail thread. Threads are confusing.

This thread got mod blessed at one point during a subforum cleanup and, with a title change, was anointed the official "not worth of a project" thread.

You’re unsure if the Butler line is busier than the Doomben line?

Adelaide would have to be doing extremely badly if none of its lines were better utilised than Doomben, Carlingford, or Olympic Park.

Good video, but the experts here still laugh at a high capacity subway even though they cannot fault it

Guess this sits in general.

A photo of the new Moore Park loop under construction which is set to open mid-year.



It's North of the light rail stop (you can see the tunnel entrance in the background) and just south of the Tibby Cotter bridge.

Will obviously be good when it opens compared to the temporary tent on Driver Avenue but I suspect overkill in size once the Light Rail opens, unless they are planning both buses and LR to Central at conclusion of events.

Would also think continuing express services to Circular Quay would make sense for events.

May also suggest more buses will be run via the busway, versus the current pattern which sees many on Anzac Pde and only using the busway in the morning peak.

For regular timetabled services? I doubt there'll be a change to see Anzac Pde services use the busway - it's too slow. All Alison Rd services (except 372) used it, so should return to doing so shortly.

None of them used the old bus loop though. Only the 339 was timetabled through it for all services a number of years, but long since ceased.

It's a much smaller loop though now and offers transfer opportunities to the LR (with a short walk) better than via Anzac Pde.
Will also be a lot less buses coming down Anzac Pde once the LR eventually opens and with traffic light priority the busway shouldn't take any longer, even in the offpeak.

Particularly with some of the proposed re-routes that were released a couple of years ago
(Eg 394/L94 from Coogee to Kings road/Edgecliff). Equally I'd think a Bondi Jn-Moore Park service might work as an alternate for some UNSW students.

There's bus stops on the busway at the light rail stop. Where's there's stops on Anzac Pde there's stops on the busway - Gregory Ave (at the Tibby Cotter Bridge), McArthur Ave (at the Sydney Girls HS traffic lights), Lang Rd, Robertson Rd. Currently the McArthur Ave stop is closed, along with all the outbound stops.

For UNSW traffic, you'd have to be coming from Woollahra or Paddington to use the 355 corridor (and have it come far more often than half-hourly!) to use it and the tram over the 400 which comes every 5 minutes, is limited stops and services upper and lower campus on every service.
