Adelaide tram promise: suburban routes up for grabs

Tuesday

May 17, 2016

alt text for flag

NEWS

Federal Labor’s promise of $500 million to kickstart the rebuilding of Adelaide’s tram network is likely to set off intense lobbying, with previously announced routes up for grabs and doubts about whether one proposed suburban line will go ahead.

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten, like the Prime Minister last week with his Flinders University rail plan, filtered the announcement through the Murdoch media today before fronting up in person for the TV cameras.

But, as with last week’s announcement, the realities are more complicated than a first reading would indicate.

The State Government says the funding will allow for the “first stages” of the so-called AdeLINK network of trams through the CBD, inner east, western, northern and southern suburbs, creating up to 2000 jobs.

However, questions remain about whether the proposed routes are in the right place.

The Government produced a map of the network (scroll down to view) in its Integrated Transport Plan produced in 2013, but little has happened since, apart from the announcement in February this year of a $4 million study to plan for the roll-out.

Transport Minister Stephen Mullighan told InDaily today that the previously announced routes were “completely contestable”.

He said he had written to mayors asking for input about the proposed routes and whether they served the community’s needs.

Mullighan indicated that an argument could be mounted that Sir Donald Bradman Drive, for example, was a better option than Henley Beach Road, and similar arguments could be mounted about the southern tram link, currently slated for Unley Road.

“There are two viable alternatives there [in the west] – each have benefits and some drawbacks,” he said.

“That’s why we want to sit down with the councils through the planning study, because they will have a view about the best option for their communities.”

InDaily has previously reported that the long-mooted Port Adelaide tram line is no certainty to go ahead due to concerns about the lower speed and passenger capacity of light rail compared to the current trains.

Mullighan agreed the Port tram idea wasn’t set in stone: the question was whether light or heavy rail was the best option to serve the Port.

“That’s more contestable in terms of the mode, rather than the route,” he said.

He said he understood the time and capacity advantages of heavy rail, but, on the other hand, light rail could extend further than the current Outer Harbor line corridor into local communities.

InDaily understands there is a push among some in the Port to reactivate the heavy rail spur to the rail museum – a move which would bring trains within a short distance of Dock One, which is slated for significant residential development.

The head of the Urban Development Institute of Australia, Pat Gerace, also called on the Government to closely examine its proposed routes to ensure future light rail provides “urban uplift” rather than just servicing popular corridors.

Gerace used Goodwood Road as an example of his point. Under the current plan, a tram line to Mitcham would run down Unley Road from the CBD, however Gerace says that route is already bustling and busy.

Goodwood Road, however, could become a more appealing residential road, with medium-density mixed residential developments – of four to five storeys, for example – if a tram was routed along its length.

“Then you get a Chapel Street [one of Melbourne’s most vibrant streets], you get rejuvenation,” Gerace told InDaily.

“We need to make sure there’s maximum urban uplift from this investment.

“A tram might go to a place like The Parade – and that’s wonderful. It’s not a bad idea… but we shouldn’t just put the trams where it’s busy.”

The Government shouldn’t “squander the opportunity” to regenerate under-utilised areas of the city that would attract appealing new development if serviced by popular light rail.

Mullighan said he agreed with Gerace’s comments and indicated every proposed route was open to re-examination, with the possible exception of Prospect Road.

As for what Adelaide could build with a $500 million federal investment, Mullighan said the Government believed it could either start work in more than one direction, or make a significant start on one major route.

He said the Government was confident it could build a tram link to the airport for that sort of money, or complete much of the eastern link down The Parade.

As InDaily reported last week, the State Government has received conflicting consultants’ reports on the proposed Port tram link, which the Integrated Transport Plan indicates would replace trains on the Outer Harbor line.

One of the reports raised concerns about the extra time that would be taken on light rail to reach the city from the outer reaches of the line, as well as the smaller carrying capacity of trams compared to trains.

Last week, the state and federal governments committed to spend more $238 million – almost half the cost of today’s announcement – to build a lowered rail line and underpass in the north Parklands to separate the Outer Harbor line from the freight route.

This project would be mostly redundant under the current PortLINK tram concept, which envisages running the tram from the Entertainment Centre across Port Road to link with the current rail corridor at Bowden Station. Under that plan, there would be no need to separate the freight and passenger routes in the north Parklands because that section of the passenger line would no longer be needed.

The Government is talking about an option to run trams on the new lowered corridor by building a tram line extension past Adelaide Oval, but there is scepticism among transport planners about the value of that idea.

For this reason, the decision to go ahead with the Torrens Junction project seems to suggest that the Port tram idea is on shaky ground.

Meanwhile, one of the local mayors whose area is slated for a tram, Unley’s Lachlan Clyne, today argued the tram line should be underground if studies showed traffic on Unley Road would be impeded.

“Our main roads leading into the city were never designed for the volumes of traffic they now carry and the only options are to build overpasses or underground tunnels,” Clyne said.

“I don’t think an overpass would work but an Unley underground seems to have merit.”

He said undergrounding, which he estimated would cost $100 million a kilometre, should also be considered for the Prospect tram line – making it many times more expensive than a surface tram.

Adelaide receives Australia’s first A350 flight

Adelaide has welcomed Australia’s first scheduled Airbus A350-900 passenger flight, with Qatar Airways QR914 touching down in the City of Churches a few minutes before 1600 local time on Tuesday.

The inaugural service, operated by A7-ALH, covered the 6,109nm journey between Doha and Adelaide in a little under 13 hours and landed about an hour ahead of schedule.

The aircraft was due to spend about five hours on the ground, including hosting some media and special guests for an on-board function, before operating the reciprocal QR915 back to Doha that was due to depart at 2125.

Adelaide Airport managing director Mark Young said the daily service from Qatar would offer South Australians ““some unique destinations in Europe, including a significant number of secondary airports” not served by other airlines from Australia.

It also had a very good spread of destinations in the United States.

“We are very strategic about the airlines we seek to attract, and Qatar has been on our radar for several years.” Young said on the eve of the inaugural flight’s arrival on Tuesday.

Qatar is the second airline from the Middle East to serve Adelaide alongside a daily Emirates Boeing 777-300ER service, which is operated flown under a codeshare partnership with Qantas.

Its arrival was excellent news for SA tourism and SA travellers, Young added. The wide-bodied aircraft would be handled at Adelaide Airport without any new infrastructure.

Meanwhile, Adelaide Airport was continuing its efforts to attract direct services from the US West Coast and China, with both China Eastern and China Southern in its sights.

Young said the Chinese airlines were “very focused” on the business case for serving SA, and discussions were proceeding satisfactorily.

However, there was no forecast of the timing of new entrants from either target market.

The South Australian Government offered inducements to Qatar Airways, including a contribution to marketing the new service, but would not disclose details of the deal.

South Australian Tourism Minister Leon Bignell said the international visitors was critical to the state’s economy.

“The new daily direct service is a great opportunity for South Australia to further strengthen our growing international reputation as a must-see tourism destination,” Bignell said in a statement.

“Not only will the Qatar Airways flights bring tourists to South Australia, but the return flights present the chance to fill the A350-900’s cargo holds with as much as 80 tonnes of premium South Australian produce.”

The move to add a fourth Australian destination to Qatar’s network – after Sydney, Melbourne and Perth – will open up competitive routes to the Middle East, Europe and the eastern US for SA air travellers.

Qatar Airways, launch customer for the A350-900, has been steadily expanding destinations for the new aircraft after making the first commercial flight between Doha and Frankfurt in January 2015.

This year, ahead of the Adelaide service, the oneworld alliance member began flying the A350-900 to Philadelphia in January and New York and Boston in March.

The aircraft has a range of about 8,100nm at a cruising speed of about 900 km/h, with Airbus claiming a faster, more efficient aircraft type because of its extensive use of light composite materials and its tapered wing, and the reduced fuel burn of its twin “next generation” Rolls Royce Trent engines.

In a statement ahead of the aircraft’s arrival, Qatar’s chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said Adelaide was an important addition to the airline’s route map.

The service would connect the South Australian capital with 38 countries in Europe, 23 countries in Africa and 27 destinations in the Middle East, he said.

Al Baker was due to hold a media conference in Adelaide on Wednesday.

On the eve of the Adelaide service, Airbus announced an order for six A350-XWBs, and six options, from Philippine Airlines, taking the order book for the Airbus type to 783 aircraft for 42 airlines.

BLUFFER’S GUIDE

If you haven’t bought into the Adelaide hype yet, the Reds could very well convince you over the next fortnight.

In the start of a challenging last five rounds before the Hyundai A-League Finals, Adelaide will host fourth-placed City on Friday and then travel to Western Sydney Wanderers, currently second, next week.

Win those two games and they will undoubtedly be favourites for the premiership and championship.

Coach Guillermo Amor deserves so much credit for turning the Reds around – they started the season with an eight-game win-less run but haven’t lost in their past 14 matches.

And with clean sheets in their last three fixtures, Adelaide look to be the complete team.

City also claimed a clean sheet last week, knocking off Sydney FC 3-0 at home, but it was only their second of the 2015-16 campaign.

Defence remains City’s main weakness and Patrick Kisnorbo and Co. will have to be at their best to thwart Adelaide’s multi-faceted attack.

City will be without Anthony Caceres (quadriceps), while Adelaide will miss Tarek Elrich (groin) for at least four weeks, although his loss is tempered by the return of Isaias.

OPTA DATA

Adelaide’s 4-0 win over Wellington Phoenix last week saw the Reds set a new club record for consecutive games without defeat

Not since Round 24 of the 2012-13 A-League season has either team kept a clean sheet in this fixture

Adelaide have kept a clean sheet in each of their last three matches, never before in their A-League history have they notched four in a row

City haven’t won away from home since Round 10 this season

ROUTE TO GOAL

These two teams could hardly have more different set-ups in the forward third.

While record-breaking striker Bruno Fornaroli is City’s focal point, Adelaide’s entire squad continues to chip in on the scoreboard.

Amor’s side have won their past four games, scoring 11 goals from six different players.

After a tough start to the season, however, centre-forward Bruce Djite appears to have found his shooting boots, with the 28-year-old having hit the back of the net in three of Adelaide’s past four matches.

Midfielder Stefan Mauk has also been critical, scoring twice in six matches, continuing his strong scoring form after leaving City in January – the 20-year-old has six goals for the season.

Fornaroli’s hat-trick last week took him to 20 goals for the season – more than any player has ever previously managed in an A-League regular season.

But City are far from a one-trick pony, with Aaron Mooy (10 goals) and Harry Novillo (9 goals) supporting the Uruguayan.

Both teams will need to be switched on in the opening 15 minutes after half-time, as City are both the leading scorers (12 goals) and worst defensive team (9 goals) in that period of matches this term.

WHO’S BEEN IN THE SPOTLIGHT THIS WEEK?

Bruno Fornaroli. The former Danubio striker broke Besart Berisha’s record at AAMI Park last week, while Fornaroli struck twice in Adelaide earlier in the season as City triumphed 4-2. Can he wreak havoc at Coopers Stadium again?

Adelaide bars: boom or bust?

Mary Taylor

THE FORAGER

Around 53 small bars opened in Adelaide this year and, with more planned for 2016, the growth is having an impact on both the old and new players in the drinks industry.

alt text for flag

Restaurant and Catering SA, part of the national industry association representing 35,000 restaurants and catering businesses across Australia, says local growth is “unprecedented”.

“More than 200 new businesses have opened in Adelaide this year, including 53 new small bars, with another 17 small bars to open in 2016,” says CEO Sally Neville.

Neville says the the small bar licensing activity has had an impact on the trade of established venues, and some of the first small bars to open are now also feeling the effects after just one to two years of trade.

“While close to 70 new bars offering greater choice for consumers, these new businesses are capturing a lot of the traditional hotel trade.

“And some of the first small bars to open are also starting to see a downturn in trade, as it is human nature for us to want to go to the new place in town – that trend is evident in restaurants as well.

“Despite the fact that there are now more businesses, the slice of the pie thinner than before.”

Neville says the Australian Bureau of Statistics recently reported a 4 per cent fall in revenues across the restaurant and catering industry in South Australia, “so we are expecting there will be a settling in business numbers”.

As well as consumers becoming fickle, the owners of these new businesses also have a different approach.

“There’s no doubt that people have changed the way they behave; loyalty has diminished for both business owners and consumers,” says Neville.

“The younger business owners approach their businesses in a non-traditional way. They have a simpler business model, they are far more tech-savvy using social media and they’re in it for a faster buck.

“The downside is that these businesses are not necessarily training people in a similar way to the larger bricks and mortar businesses, so there’s no promotional stream for employees.

“They’re not leaving a legacy for the industry.”

While operators of some of the first small bars in Adelaide agree there is more competition than when they first opened, they don’t necessarily see it as a negative.

Alister Robertson, bar manager at Clever Little Tailor, which opened in 2013 in Peel Street, says he hasn’t noticed a change in trade.

“We only fit a small amount of people in our venue, so it’s quite easy to fill up, but there’s definitely more competition out there now which just means standards need to be higher and service needs to be better,” says Robertson.

He also doesn’t see an issue with smaller businesses not leaving a legacy with regard to staff training.

“I don’t see much difference between the larger bricks and mortar businesses and us.

“Low & Slow American BBQ is just another example of a food truck that has established itself as a restaurant. He’s sold out every night. A business like that needs to employ a lot of staff.

“Amalfi’s has been going for more than 30 years and still serves great pasta and they’re busy every night, too. I think if you’re doing something well, you’ll do well. I think there’s room for everybody and I’m pretty confident we offer great service, too.”

Proof was the first bar to open in Anster Street, just off Waymouth Street, and owner Shane Ettridge says he has definitely noticed a change.

“There are certainly less people, but we have to adapt and ensure we keep a strong regular crowd. When you first open, you experience a boom, but then the dust settles and you work out where you sit.

“Building loyalty is our main focus, but we had that in place before the boom. That’s definitely down to the relationship between the bartender and the punter; if you don’t establish that early, there are plenty of other places that will.

“It’s nothing new or tricky; it’s just getting back to basics and providing personal service such as remembering a customer’s name and what they like to drink.

“It’s the kind of service that was established in pubs, but they have become so removed from where they were. We don’t have the same sources of revenue as pubs, such as pokies, so we have to focus on service.

“We’re not new kids on the block any more. We’ve found our niche and Proof is certainly a viable business.”
