Re: WS Airport Metro

Presumably the Tallewong yard has been designed with sufficient future capacity for the Schofields - Bankstown section. (more, and longer, trains) See the Sydney Metro site. Tallawong Trains Facility was designed to be constructed in two phases. The second expansion is now underway and should be co...

Re: NSW Railway Observations 2020

Re: WS Airport Metro

Much preferred the gum leaf roof design of the NW Metro stations.

How does the Airport station integrate with the terminals?

Well in off-peak (which is the only time the 2nd leg is zeroed) you'd be charged $1.60

Re: Ferry Observations 2020

All this Labor inspired drama over passengers getting "decapitated" by the Gasworks Bridge. Exactly. Suspect had they been built in Australia we wouldn't be hearing about this. Much like the bus strike over masks, that really seems to be about the tender process for a few regions, other issues at p...

Re: CBD & South East Light Rail

Well they did build a massive new Bus Interchange at Moore Park, but its not exactly convenient to the Light Rail, and has hardly been used given the LR opened about a month after the interchange was complete

Can't quite understand that post Campbeltown busboy.
Do you mean it works sometimes for you??

Eitherway looks like something is still wrong with the configuration.

Re: New bus stop shelters for Sydney?

So looks like the new contractor is more video screen focused.

I just hope they are smart enough to integrate real time bus info with the screens. In my mind it's a win-win as more people will actually look at the ads

What livery is the demonstrator wearing?
Did they have to install special charging equipment at the depot, or is it just running off say a 3 phase outlet?

Re: Opal Discussion and Observations

$2 discount remains unchanged. I think the question was if you transfer to a 0-3km bus/light rail which will be $1.60 temporarily, do you get 40c back? (Or even 3-8km) Agree the change in peak times is extremely poor and will likely cause more crowding in the real peak as people are unable to adjust...

Re: Opal Discussion and Observations

Yes.
Sat and Sun cap instead of Sun only cap.

In the short term with half price fares (other than on ferries) many won't hit the cap though

Re: Opal Discussion and Observations

Theoretically yes.. but I expect it will mean a free transfer temporarily - indeed up to 8km on a bus
(I'd be surprised if the logic allows a negative fare)

Re: Opal Discussion and Observations

Ouch on the 0-3km bus/light rail increase, though offset by the off-peak pricing for some. The increase in the definition of peak hours will also increase fares for those travelling in the shoulder (and possibly shift more demand back into the former peak) Assume Sunday ferry demand is likely to plu...

So they can construct it without having to shut the line for a long period. You can build much of the new platforms while T3 is still operating.

Re: Sydney Metro - Tallawong to Bankstown

Should also be added that there is a safeguarded underground box to the South of the existing trains line shown on the new plan. The most likely use of this would be for an extension of the Metro line to Liverpool. But you could also see it being used for say a Hurstville to Chatswood Circle via Ban...
