The Adelaide train system only carries 14.5 m passengers per year, so it is defintely not ready for 6-car EMUs. They have made a wise choice of running short trains at high frequency (like Perth) rath ...

Over a 2 week period his month I travelled on hundreds of escalators in Japan, some more heavily used than at Southern Cross Station. Of all these only one was out for maintenance. Those I noticed wer ...

The government were no doubt spooked by not having a Federal Labour government contribute to Melbourne Metro 1, so had to reign in lots of other nice sounding expenditure. Unfortunately all the propos ...

Why does the steepness of the ramps affect whether to open them or not? They are too steep for DDA compliance, but I have seen Southern Cross Station staff take overseas visitors through them without  ...

There would be a tendency for conservatism in the PBO to overestimate costs and underestimate benefits. If funds are allocated by Parliament based on their estimates and ...

The Parliamentary Budget Office (PBO) appear to have overestimated the costs and underestimated the benefits. Costs were for 10 minute headways on all lines, some of which have single track sections t ...

St Albans, Ginifer and Williams Landing all have ramps. The LRXA website for Reservoir only mentions "lifts and stairs", not ramps. No ramp is shown in the image. So again, is this an omission from th ...
