Due to having extra time this morning, I decided to go from ADELAIDE RWS to the END of THE LINE and take the TRAM to CITY WEST for a change.  The trip there was uneventful, it is after all only a short distance along North Terrace to the END of the LINE (just west and close to the Morphett Street bridge). Upon arrival, I asked the driver who was changing ends and now carrying the SHUTTLE TRAIN headboard, how long before we leave - He said, "About three and a half minutes'. After six minute the driver made an announcement to the three passengers (myself included).   "Sorry this tram will not be going anywhere for a while The headlights are not working". 
So changed onto the next tram which arrived a short time later... (END of STORY).

NEW  SOUTH  ROAD  TRAM  OVERPASS



18th October 2009

South Road Tram Overpass (bridge or whatever!).
I assume it will be given some dopey name which 
will mean absolutely nothing in thirty years time.
 Like "Transport Minister Conlons' Bridge or similar."

These pictures taken today showing the nearly finished Tram Stop 6 (South Road-high level tram platforms). Walked over the bridge / overpass, you will notice that there is a bike lane (a big one) included on the northern side of the 'erection'. Took other pictures from the high point (through the circular patterned finish) of the overpass towards the Gallipoli Underpass where South Road goes under Anzac Highway.
