Re: Results of Adelaide Metro rail tender

I doubt it: Torrens got the trams but weren’t penalised. They still kept all the other contract areas they had and also got outer north as well as the trams.

Re: Tenders to upgrade bus stops

I agree many are in a very poor state, many very faded signs hanging on an unpainted stobie pole with electrical wiring and tubing across the front of them. On a positive note, in the last 12 months or so where stops have been upgraded with new concrete and/or paved areas including the tactile pavin...

Re: Tenders to upgrade bus stops

According to media reports, didn’t they have $2.8 million set aside for the removal of the 1000+ bus stops, tactile paving, changing to “school services only” stops etc anticipating that Knoll’s big “improvements” plan was going to get through? Maybe those funds are now going to be used to improve t...

Re: Next Timetable Changes

Didn’t the government (previous transport minister Knoll) say there would be no changes when the radical proposal was withdrawn? Getting closer to a state election, and with recently announced new electoral boundary changes in place that supposedly favour Labor, they wouldn’t be game enough to rock ...

Re: 230, 232 and 232R route and timetable change

Leaving the right turn pothook (with a sign showing 230,232) on Regency Rd just before the corner of Days Rd heading east doesn’t help. They’ve removed the bus stops (other than those still used by a school bus) but haven’t removed the pothook. The pothook before South Rd still shows 231 turning rig...

Re: 230, 232 and 232R route and timetable change

Even (1) r Days Rd, l Regency Rd (2) r South Rd, l Regency Rd as the 2 routes (230 and 232) would be better than the current arrangement, but does destroy the GoZone. But then Port Rd still has red bus stops and GoZone timetable display boxes (those that are left) even though Port Rd hasn’t been any...

Re: [July/Aug 2020] SA transport observations

It doesn’t seem that long ago when BusTechs with fleet numbers in the 1990s were being delivered to Mile End depot and we were all trying to guess what would follow 1999. Along came 1020. But we are now into the 1070 range (with 1071 hitting the road today from Morphettville). So what happens when 1...

Re: Railway Terrace depot - 6 months on

Some Torrens shifts (across a few depots) do have meal breaks scheduled at the Railway Tce meal facility. Although some drivers might choose to go to Mile End or Clarendon St instead.

Re: 230, 232 and 232R route and timetable change

This is simply because Pym Street will no longer cross South Road, permanently. Nothing to do with Knoll’s cancelled plans: that would’ve seen the 232 (Newcastle St and the northern end of Torrens Rd at Rosewater) disappear completely.

Re: Buses out of service for long periods

282 is on the dead track behind Port workshops minus its engine. So I guess that will be a long term absentee from being in service.

Re: The Random Admet Question Thread

Some depots so large now that they have more than 100 straight shifts on a weekday. So silver shifts and track shifts now have a different second digit to manage that. At Morphettville 6600 would be Saturday silver, 6700 Saturday track, 6800 Sunday silver, 6900 Sunday track.

Wow. Brilliant buses. With air conditioning: certainly an upgrade!

I think 2744-2745 went to Port as 247/277.
I think you'll find that they are 275 and 277 at Port.

Several MAN NLs and at least 3 Scanias still with 2xxx fleet numbers sitting in St Agnes yard today, near NE Road. I’m guessing there’s probably a few more track buses sitting at Ed N than were what at Ed.
