[quote=TrainboyEH]Doing the sextup for sydenham to Erskineville wouldn't be that hard. The land is there for it, majority of tunnels and so are the platforms. All they have to do is add two more bridg ...

Even if you do link the airport with Western and South -Western Sydney, what about Eastern, Southern, Inner Western, Northern Sydney and the CBD. There needs to be an express link to and from Sydney C ...

I'm concerned with the lack of planning made to change, modify and build onto the existing line for conversion to SD metro trains. This plan has yet come to reality, and in my opinion, it provides lit ...

[quote=donttellmywife]According to [url=this]this, the physical installation on the Illawarra line has already been completed.[/quote]

Have the readers been uncovered or revealed yet?

I take it we don't have an exact date as yet.

Yeah, we had all expected the Light Rail Extension to start operating by February which the government announced but it turne ...

Notably, once the Bankstown Metro is in operation (with SD trains), K/C sets in Sector 2 will discontinue rostered services and instead used for emergency/filling in maintenance gaps from other sets/s ...

Option A suggests there are 12 DD tph on the Bankstown Line while Option B and C suggests a 12 tph SD frequency during peak hours. SD trains accommodate much fewer people so how would the capacity of  ...

Does the government have any plans as to HOW both lines will be converted? Frequency levels, new underground tracks or existing platform and tracks, which route the metro will take etc. ??

The Bankstown Metro won't likely finish construct in the next 20 years at least.

The new extension is scheduled to open to locals by March 2014

My concern is with the Airport and East Hills Line overcrowding once links to Oran Park/Camden and Badgery's Creek Airport are built. Unless new infrastrucutre such as additional tracks are built, the ...

Most light rail stops have been fitted with passenger information display screens, lifts, new platforms, stairs and shelter. Train frequencies may increase meaning a possible 5-10 minutes gap between  ...

A70 was in service on the 16:05 (Central time) train to Hornsby via Mac Uni

As mentioned before, K sets don't fit well onto all stops service (banko and inner west lines). Due to the characteristics of the lines, especially the Banko Line, sharp bends make K sets uncomfortabl ...

A70 is in revenue service on Sector 3

Posted 31 Jan 2014 23:15 in Sydney Suburban by Alfred3333

Currently, how many S set rosters are in sector 2?

[quote="matthewg"]That's just the official line off the Opal web site. Q1 2014 is also given for the main west roll out too. They are probably deliberately vague. If they can get it on-line before the ...

I heard the new turnback will be in use from 11 January 2014. How will it be used and operated?

Posted 15 Dec 2013 08:18 in Sydney Suburban by Alfred3333

I think it should be the Bankstown line.



Are there any signs of installation of opal card readers there?

Posted 14 Dec 2013 12:12 in Sydney Suburban by Alfred3333

Does anyone know which line would be the last to be rolled out with opal card ticketing?

[quote="seb2351"]I would have to concur with you Bernerd. You can get a smooth, more efficient and better use of resources by having the new trains on the all stoppers. Timetables are written with the ...
