Interesting about the tapleys hill road overpass / underpass.
It would need to go underground I guess because of the golf course, This would need to have a new Seaton Station built. This would mean a waste of the $210,000 station shelter recently installed.
interesting because Mullighan is promoting in his leaflets that Labor is doing these projects. Not Labor inspired use of taxpayers funds.
Grange, East Grange, Seaton, Albert Park , Woodville have new station passenger shelters that do not seem to shelter passengers.
Is labor paying for them or is it slightly misleading advertising?
And just up the road is the Port Road level crossing.
With the way the timetables operate you get two trains passing within 2 minutes or so.
There are much greater delays there than at Tapleys Hill road. Delays of ten to fifteen minutes in this area are common, So why not look at removing a much larger problem , in a much more easy project.
Another way to look at this crossing would be to double line from the old Holdens station to past Port Road.
That way trains could be programmed to cross there at the same time and reduce the number of closures by half.
and if that was implemented it would reduce the travel times on that line. And by reducing the 13 minute stop at Grange to say five minutes you could implement a fifteen minute service interval during the peak and provide double the services on the line to cater for the increased patronage being encouraged by labor as part of their free travel for pensioners.
This is in the Premiers electorate, so not a priority as he seems to think his seat is safe,
But Mullighan and his team of traffic hazard erectors ( sorry I mean electoral signs putter uppers) seem to be very worried about the result in Lee.
Mullighan has offered a roundabout at the corner of Military and Jetty roads .
He has erected a very low series of posters right on that corner which impede vision more than already exists.
If he is so worried about road safety , why does he allow signs to be erected that are traffic hazards.
I drove through Port Adelaide and Cheltenham electorates yesterday and the fewer number of posters from all parties was a better experience than the warfare in Lee.
Do these clowns really think I will vote for them as a result of the posters?
Do I really believe that transport ministers are here for public transport.
Last Week I went to the Cold Chisel after race concert on a fairly full train. Festival , car race etc.
I asked about the last train home to Grange.
Oh that will be a bus from North terrace as the line is closed tonight?"
After months and months of closure , they still need to close it again on that very busy night.
What were they doing this time?
So I caught the bus home from Grenfell street as well as a number of disgruntled people who wanted to travel by train, cause it is a better ride, faster and more comfortable. 20 minutes versus forty minutes.
