SO  I may have a few options of ROUTES from Sydney CBD to PARRAMATTA using LIGHT RAIL / BRT ….. that include
street level, and skytrain/tram/electric bus integration solutions. If needed it can include ” mini- carriages”  for low demand areas…. or  twisting roads not suitable for  LONG CARRIAGES

SCHILTEC:

To put a proud 21st century public transport system onto back roads has no appeal; consider:

1

Public transport is No 1 in priority and must refuse to be side-tracked.  With Waverail Sydney will have a world-class public transport system and this certainly has no place on back roads.  Have you seen a French TGV on a curvy  goat track?

2

Rail is notoriously bad in bends. Motorcars can do bends better.

3

Travel time is compromised on back roads and will render even Waverail uncompetitive.  Competitiveness time comparisons are not done on travelling time but on door to door times.

4

Most passengers stand in Waverail.  It would be an insult to force on passengers the slow, jerky agony of a back road at the same time when motorists sit on the direct main roads.

5

For various reasons Waverail cars smaller than  ~65passengers are unsuitable .  (This number however need further research)

6

Waverail makes 21 times better use of real estate than motor traffic (15,000 Passengers/h  against 700 for one typical Sydney road lane).  Thus Waverail increases the capacity of one direction of Parramatta road from currently 2,100 to 16,400 persons/h; or a stunning 680%!  A news blog is being prepared on this subject.

7

Traffic area from the current main road bus lanes becomes available.
