Quote from: ACTbusspotter on December 17, 2011, 06:00:58 PMWait for the more detailed report, but I'd be fairly certain that they will not recommend either light rail or bus lane down the median of Northbourne. A cycle lane is possible, bit that's all.(stuff snipped)Besides, we're never getting Light Rail anyway.
Quote from: smitho on December 17, 2011, 10:30:45 PMGetting trams and buses to share the same right of way is not rocket science.I've seen trams (light rail) and articulated trolley buses sharing the same right of way and overhead power infrastructure in Switzerland...
Quote from: Bonnerbus on April 19, 2012, 09:15:49 AMI think you will find that the Gungahlin - City route was selected as Flemington road (and Northbourne once they start getting rid of all the smacky flats) is going to be lined with high density housing which will make the route more viable for light rail than the Woden to City route which doesnt have the same high density population between the two centres.
Quote from: route56 on April 20, 2012, 10:56:09 AMI might FOI the costings. Looking through the concept report, it seems that a lot of the money would be spent on construction of the road surface of Northbourne Avenue, specifically the proposals to have the rails/bus lanes on the edge (where the bike paths are). If you read through the concept report, its a recurring theme, instead of the obvious - which is run it up the middle.
