The primary objective of the north east area public transport review was to determine the steps that must be taken in the next five or ten years to provide the basis of a public transport system to serve the needs of the north east suburbs of Adelaide at least until the end of the century. With this objective in mind and taking into account specific engineering, social, environmental, economics and land use criteria, the objectives of the proposed action, a light rail transit line, were developed. The study findings demonstrate the need for a major improvement to the transport system in the north east area. A number of options are described and some selected for detailed evaluation. Details of the preferred action in terms of the selected route and technical and other characteristics of the system, and a summary of probable environmental effects in terms of adverse and beneficial impacts are given. In a majority of the areas an LRT system or busway all or part of the Modbury transport corridor would best meet the required criteria and offer significant advantages over other transportation systems examined.
