RE: Princes Highway Crossing Signal Replacement – December 2020

Attached is another example in a somewhat more highly trafficked Adelaide location than Mal Rowe's example. This is where adjacent to Unley Park railway station, Cross Road, (the main road link from the Adelaide Hills at Glen Osmond to the coast at Glenelg) crosses the broad gauge AdelaideMetro line to Belair and the standard gauge line to Melbourne. There is an offset road intersection also controlled by traffic lights a couple of hundred metres behind the photographic position.

Here's the view looking west from the former terminus of the tramway in
Puckle St Moonee Ponds.,144.9199297,3a,75y,283.92h,88.02t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sbktaKqcRTAbcuGFH52IdXg!2e0!!7i16384!8i8192


It has the trifecta of railway flashing light, traffic lights
(coordinated with the rail signals) and boom barriers.

Mal Rowe - who wonders if more is better
