Re: WS Airport Metro

Surely logic would decree building the St Mary’s - Tallawong link at the same time, then they wouldn’t need a new stabling facility...? Presumably the Tallewong yard has been designed with sufficient future capacity for the Schofields - Bankstown section. (more, and longer, trains) It may not be ab...

Re: CBD & South East Light Rail

I wouldn't.

A more logical approach might have been at the Darley Rd end of the site, but even that would be nowhere near the size of the current depot.

Re: CBD & South East Light Rail

Considering there are probably only a couple of stops without parallel bus services, no one would know the difference.

Only problem might be people who go to the platforms and don't bother reading the signs. But I suspect there will staff at all the stops.

Re: Private Bus Observations 2020

Tram drivers sit in sealed compartments, yet the front doors do not open, and the first couple of rows of seats are isolated.

On buses, passengers are forced to walk past unprotected drivers.

What is the desirability of having heavy rail access to somewhere near the airport for fuel supplies?

Re: WS Airport Metro

Even if there was single compatible system, some people would still have the need to transfer from one line to another to complete a journey. A train<-->metro transfer would be no different to a train<-->train transfer.

Re: Supersized "When lights flash" signs on NSW buses and black surroundibg on school lights

New regulations came into effect late last year or early this year requiring the black panel (No adverts allowed) and the larger sign. Also the lights have to be brighter than the turn signal lights.
