Split “metro”: By train from Kopilica to the city port in 4 minutes

first_imgRELATED NEWS: The high-speed city railway, or the Split metro as they call it from miles away, will depart every 20 minutes, with the journey on that stretch lasting only four minutes. The price of a one-way ticket is 11 kuna, and passengers will be able to use the same ticket in other areas of the city bus transport.  City trains on the route Kopilica-Gradska luka and vice versa will run every 20 minutes, while the ticket price will be 11.00 kuna per person in one direction. With one-way regulation of road traffic in the city port and the introduction of new bus and railway lines, which will increase throughput and reduce waiting, the goal of this project is to provide quality intermodal service and traffic relief of the City of Split. As they point out from the city of Split, the organization of the Main Railway Station in Kopilica and the introduction of the city railway in the public transport service is expected to reduce the pressure of vehicles, especially tourist buses to the city center, and passengers can get to the center by train in 4 minutes which is valid for rail and bus hour. Photos: HZPP According to the new changes, disembarkation and embarkation of passengers from tourist buses at the terminals at the Tourist Palace on the Riva will be possible, but with a limit of 15 minutes, and each stop for embarkation and disembarkation will cost 400 kuna, ie a total of 800 kuna. Note, UHPA agreed at a meeting with the city of Split that pre-agreed and announced groups by tour operators and travel agencies in 2019 will be realized under the same conditions as before, and the new prices are valid for all from 2020. (more on the whole issue in the attachment) The City of Split has introduced changes in the regulation of public city transport as well as stationary traffic for tourist buses in the area of ​​the narrower and wider city center. The feasibility study is currently being prepared for the connection of the air and ferry port by rail, after which further activities necessary for the realization of this project will continue. According to the results of the Feasibility Study, the Terms of Reference will be supplemented and the activities of conducting a public tender for the preparation of project documentation and obtaining permits would begin. Specifically, this means that the disembarkation and embarkation of passengers from tourist buses will be organized along the railway platform in Kopilica, where a parking lot for tourist buses with 48 seats will be opened. The daily parking ticket for tourist buses will be 120 kuna, as has been the price for parking in Dračevac so far. Tickets will be sold at the box offices of Promet and HŽ Putnički prijevoz. City-suburban trains on the route Split Predgrađe (Kopilica) – Split (city port) will run on average every 24 minutes, and the train ride takes 4 minutes.       ANNEX: TIMETABLE Split – Suburbs of Split / Suburbs of Split – Split Yesterday, the first city-suburban train started on the route Split Predgrađe (Kopilica) – Split (city port), which started the realization of the project of connecting with the high-speed suburban railway station Split. Interestingly the historic first run was delayed by three minutes. “The goal is to connect the airport and Split’s City Port, the two busiest ports on the eastern Adriatic coast with almost nine million passengers. When we add to that the four cities connected by the railway, then it is quite clear that we could not have started this project without HŽ Putnički prijevoz, HŽ Infrastruktura, the Split city companies Promet and Split – parking. This is just the first step of something that we will achieve in the years ahead, and because of the better quality of life of our fellow citizens. We are aware of the daily, high traffic between Split and other nearby cities and outside the tourist season. In order to relieve the traffic in the center of Split, we are taking a number of measures, such as the purchase of new city buses, the preparation of city and electric bicycle systems, as well as the reform of the city parking system. Changes in the relief of city traffic are underway. It is up to us all to get used to the changes and the new system together and to encourage the railway as a relief”Said the first man of the city of Split, Mayor Krstulović Opara. The new traffic regulation means that one-way traffic will be introduced in the City Port, while the main railway station will be organized in Kopilica. Also, the above-mentioned city railway line Kopilica – Gradska luka was introduced, so that tourists, after getting off the bus, could reach the city center by rail.  Also, it is planned to introduce the line Prometa doo Split on the route Airport – Kaštel Stari and joint tickets Promet doo – HŽPP for the route Zračna luka – Kaštel Stari – Split station (city port). / / / COMMON SENSE HAS OVERCOME IN THE CITY OF SPLIT: PRE-AGREED AND ANNOUNCED GROUPS WILL BE REALIZED UNDER THE SAME CONDITIONS AS BEFORElast_img read more

He missed five league games at the start of the season with injury problems but has been involved in every game since, with the exception of December’s Champions League dead rubber against Inter Milan. The Barca captain has scored 17 goals in his 21 appearances in all competitions, including the winner against Granada on Sunday when new coach Quique Setien took charge of the team for the first time. However, he won’t get the chance to add to his tally in Ibiza, with Setien opting to rest some of his more senior players ahead of Saturday’s La Liga game away at Valencia.Advertisement Loading… Promoted ContentWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooWhat Is A Black Hole In Simple Terms?Which Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?Ever Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?

FB : Wanting more: Bowl victory leaves Syracuse fans eager for start of 2011 season

first_img Published on August 28, 2011 at 12:00 pm It didn’t seem like a bad decision at the time, but Colin Crowley and a group of friends decided to go pumpkin picking on the day of Syracuse’s road matchup against West Virginia last season. After watching the score on their cellphones climb to 14-10 in West Virginia’s favor, it seemed that Syracuse was going to fall to its rival yet again.But Syracuse took the lead in the second quarter and never looked back.Crowley, a sophomore at Syracuse University in the College of Arts and Sciences, and his friends chose to stay in the parking lot and listen to the game’s final quarter wind to a close on the car’s radio. The group listened as Shamarko Thomas sacked West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith two times in the final four plays, putting a stamp on one of the most unexpected victories in SU head coach Doug Marrone’s second season.Syracuse went on to win the game 19-14 in what proved to be one of the biggest victories in a monumental season for the Orange. The Ben Schwartzwalder Trophy, given to the winner of the matchup between SU and the Mountaineers, returned to Syracuse for the first time in eight years.‘It was a really exciting moment,’ Crowley said. ‘That was probably the highlight of the season. We ended up sitting in the parking lot for 15 or 20 minutes because we didn’t want to miss any of the last part of the game because it was so close.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter finishing 7-5 in the regular season and fourth in the Big East conference, SU went on to win the inaugural Pinstripe Bowl against Kansas State 36-34.And as Syracuse looks to put together its second consecutive winning season, fan support and belief is growing more than it has in years.‘Everyone is excited to get in the Dome and hang out and go to see games,’ junior public relations major Kyle Suba said. ‘I’m excited to see how they do this year, and I’m planning on attending a couple more games than I did last year.’***Mike Goodfriend likes what he’s seen from Marrone in just two seasons at the helm. The junior biomedical engineering major said he thinks the team is clearly headed in a different direction under Marrone.‘It was really exciting to win our first big bowl game like that,’ Goodfriend said. ‘First, Pinstripe Bowl champions is always a big thing and more than anything, it gave me more hope for this year. It’s not that big of a postseason bowl, but I hope that it gives us a lot of motivation to do well this year.’Marrone returned to his alma mater after former head coach Greg Robinson’s disappointing four-year reign. Robinson was fired with two games remaining in the 2008 season and finished his time at SU with a 10-37 record.Marrone’s task was to rejuvenate a program that had not recorded a winning season since 2001.He knew that the most important task was to return Syracuse to its winning ways.‘I don’t have any options,’ Marrone said during his introductory press conference. ‘I cannot fail. I cannot fail. My option is only to win. That’s what I’m here to do.’Fans loved the attitude adjustment. But despite the optimism, the Orange dropped four of its last five games and stumbled to a 4-8 record in his first year.The results left many fans pessimistic to the prospects of a winning season in 2010. But SU reached a bowl game for the first time since 2004. The Orange, which relied heavily on its No. 7 ranked defense during the season, relied on its offense during its victory against the Wildcats in a bowl game shootout.The skeptics included sophomore broadcast and digital journalism major Ben Glidden, who followed the team before arriving to Syracuse.‘Syracuse hadn’t had the best reputation in previous years since 2001 or so,’ Glidden said. ‘I didn’t have high expectations coming in, and the fact that they clinched a bowl and to win the bowl definitely exceeded my expectations.’***Andrew Kaufman simply wants SU to remain competitive in its toughest test of 2011, when the Orange travels to Los Angeles to play No. 25 Southern California on Sept. 17.The sophomore engineering and computer science major feels that although the Orange defeated some marquee opponents within the Big East last year, the Pac-12 Conference still has a better reputation.‘It would be nice to win, but I don’t really think that’s that realistic,’ Kaufman said. ‘All they have to do is if they play hard and keep it a close game and establish a running game and a passing game. I don’t think we’re going to win, but I would definitely be satisfied with that.’Syracuse defeated Cincinnati, South Florida and West Virginia all on the road last year. But this year, the team’s biggest foe on the road comes in the form of USC and the Trojans’ star quarterback, Matt Barkley.The Orange has not won a game on the West Coast since 1967, and it won’t be an easy task to break that streak this season.Jared Stenz, who graduated from SU in May, plans to attend the game in Los Angeles. He said that although SU will face a supreme test in attempting to stop a potent USC offense, the timing of the game might just be right.Syracuse’s matchup against USC falls a week before the Trojans face Arizona State on the road.‘I think that being competitive is definitely important,’ Stenz said. ‘I would be very disappointed if we were not because I plan on flying out for that game. But I think winning it is definitely within a possibility, especially with everything that has gone on at USC. I think it could be a bit of a trap game.’***Syracuse will need to buck a disappointing trend if it hopes to achieve Marrone’s goal of winning the Big East title this season. SU lost all three of its conference games inside the Carrier Dome last season.The Orange won twice at the Carrier Dome last season, but each victory came against a Football Championship Subdivision opponent.And the team can’t make any excuses. The support was there. The Orange saw its average attendance climb to 40,064, the highest since 2005. The support should continue to rise following the bowl victory, but John Jardin, a junior in the College of Arts and Sciences, said consistency will be the biggest thing for the fans’ pride to continue to shine through.Syracuse’s first matchup at home against Wake Forest on Thursday will be a vital building block for the upcoming season.‘There’s probably more support around the whole city of Syracuse, not just on campus,’ Jardin said. ‘If they come out against Wake Forest and get blown out or something like that, I have a feeling that these new fans are going to crawl back into their dens where they’ve been hiding.’The pessimism hasn’t completely diminished yet. After five straight losing seasons prior to 2010, it’s hard to convince everyone that the team is completely back to contending for the Big East title.But a quiet and subtle confidence is slowly creeping back into the minds of Syracuse fans.‘I think winning the Big East is a bit of a stretch,’ Stenz said. ‘But given how wide open the Big East is, I think anything is possible.’adtredin@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Commentslast_img read more

Doc Gallows talks leaving WWE, joining Impact Wrestling, returning to NJPW and hosting their own PPV

first_imgDG: 100 percent. You can get burned out in a company like the WWE, whether that be the travel or creative direction. We’ve seen it over the years. But when you step away from it and go someplace where it is more relaxed you remember why you fell in love with it in the first place. SN: Where do you see yourself and Karl at this time next year?DG: Talk N Shop A Mania 37, I hope! I’m hoping that we can come out of this pandemic and have shows with fans. We thrive off of their energy, whether you love or hate us. We just want to entertain fans live again. Gallows sat down with Sporting News to plug some holes from their revealing interview, including what the Bullet Club thought of The OC, tag team wrestling in WWE, when they will return to New Japan Pro Wrestling and the twists and turns leading up to their debut at Slammiversary.  MORE: WWE PPV schedule 2020: Dates, locations for every announced 2020 wrestling eventSporting News (SN): What’s the feedback been like after the Talk ‘N Shop livestream?Doc Gallows (DG): The feedback was actually great. As far as the negative stuff about the WWE that I said specifically, it truly is water under the bridge, but I felt like I had to say it. And then we were really excited to announce the move to sign with IMPACT Wrestling and, of course, Talk ‘N Shop A Mania, which we’re super excited about. It feels like wrestling got a shot in the arm with some fresh new stuff that’s coming up and I’m very happy to be a part of all that.SN: I want to fill in a few holes from the show. One is whether you were at all surprised that Triple H and Vince McMahon had no idea of your accomplishments in New Japan Pro Wrestling prior to signing you.DG: I think they knew we had some buzz because of the Bullet Club so I figure that they saw it as a chance to scoop up two Bullet Club guys who were making some waves in NJPW. WWE has historically gone after guys who are doing well outside of the WWE. It doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll be handled the same way when they get inside because, as history has shown us, WWE likes to create their own stars, not necessarily work on previously existing ones. I don’t know what they expected with us. But you got to take what’s handed to you and do your best with it. SN: How much WWE programming did you watch before you signed?DG: Not a lot. We were in our own bubble at New Japan because we were so busy.SN: The reason I ask is that the prevailing thought has been that WWE has little interest in the tag team division. But, at the same time, it appeared that there was a resurgence when you arrived as well as teams like The Revival, The New Day, The Usos, etc. DG: For sure, man! We thought there was definitely hope but whenever we got a glimmer of that it went away. They are a company that believes the drawing power is in the singles rivalries and that’s their thing. But tag team wrestling does matter, it just happens to matter on a different channel. SN: When it was decided that you, Karl and AJ would form The Original Club as a shot at the Bullet Club, did you talk to the friends in New Japan about it?DG: I talk to the Young Bucks, Tama Tonga and Bad Luck Fale all the time. When we told them about The OC they said “good for you guys.” We always support each other. They had high hopes for it, as did we.SN: You were very close to joining AEW and ended up burning them by resigning with WWE. How has communication been since then?DG: I’m so proud of those guys. When The OC thing started and we saw the creative thing for Karl and me, we texted them and said “Well, we f—ked up. We made a bad decision.” Everybody is over it now and we can laugh about it. We knew that Cody, the Young Bucks, Kenny Omega and the rest wouldn’t let that fail. But we didn’t know it would be such a smashing success. It’s good for pro wrestling.SN: Was it also good to see talent like EC3 and Eric Young come home to IMPACT considering how seldom they were used in the WWE?DG: EC3 looked like a million bucks and gave a hell of a promo when he returned. IMPACT knew how to play to his strengths and it was great to see him back. Fans are smart now and they understand talent thrive somewhere else but haven’t necessarily been given a platform elsewhere. Eric Young is a perfect example of a guy who was on top at IMPACT and didn’t get the opportunity to show what he had in WWE. It’s good for him to be home. They aren’t a bunch of WWE rejects, they have succeeded outside of WWE.SN: You were also joining IMPACT at a time of uncertainty and plenty of changes happened before Slammiversary aired. Tessa Blanchard left the company and the likes of Joey Ryan and Michael Elgin were also removed due to the #SpeakingOut campaign of women addressing sexual abuse and assault in pro wrestling. DG: Definitely. I talked to Scott D’Amore every day and would check-in when something would pop up because it felt like their creative was getting rocked every week. But I think with us teasing our arrival and all of the surprises it helped build the buzz so that we could trend No. 1 on Twitter the night of Slammiversary. It’s a fun challenge to have because we are not the WWE and we have our own mountains to climb. We’re up for the challenge.SN: When will you be returning to New Japan?DG: We’re just waiting for the world to open up. We’re trying to figure out dates so that we can make our big return. It’s going to be a big deal when we come back. What you’re going to get is the old school Gallows and Anderson that made you like us as a team. The Disneyworld feel is gone. We’re back to doing what we do best. SN: But the Bullet Club is completely different now…DG: Yeah it is! I didn’t see the EVIL thing coming at all. The landscape of the Bullet Club is totally different. We’ll see who is welcoming and who is not. But it’s been a long time since we’ve been together and I’m excited about it. I was blown away by EVIL joining. They don’t have a lot of bad ideas over there so we’ll have to see if he can step up and how this all plays out. The long game is where it’s at and if you look at Gedo’s booking. You may not get to where the viewer expects to go but it’s always surprising and enticing. It’s an old-school approach that works. I love watching things unfold slowly and not the crash TV that you sometimes see in the WWE. They will turn on something quick, which I don’t fully understand. SN: Let’s talk Talk ‘N Shop A Mania. When did this idea originally enter your mind?DG: Well, I just really felt that the first season of Southpaw Wrestling thing we did at WWE was really good and the second one wasn’t. There wasn’t a lot of interest in it anymore and there were a lot of changes. I feel like they stole my Sex Ferguson thing and made a show about it. But there was never an ending to it. We just came off of a cinematic match with The Undertaker and we’re fired 12 days later. If we don’t spoof this, we’re complete idiots. Four days after we got released I told my friends that we had to do a pay-per-view and I went and wrote it out at my dining room table. I had to do it whether it was a hit or a massive failure. SN: Was everyone behind this from the start?DG: No. There’s a behind the scenes documentary coming out and you will see a lot of guys show up at my house not knowing why the hell they were there. But they are my buddies so I flew them down, gave them a payday and told them we’re going to have some fun. A lot of this will be you seeing television wrestling characters that normally play something serious stepping completely out of that and doing something different. It’s a parody. It’s meant to make you smile and take 90 minutes out of this crazy world around us and enjoy the follies of professional wrestling. I love serious pro wrestling but I love this side, too. I mean, the main event is a Boner Yard Match so you can’t expect anything serious. This is also TV-MA and not meant for the kids. If you buy it and hate it, you’re only out of $14.95 so it’s okay.SN: Has this ultimately recharged your battery? On April 4, 2020, Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson were involved in the most talked-about match at WrestleMania when AJ Styles lost to The Undertaker in a Boneyard Match. Surprisingly, just 12 days later, WWE released Gallows and Anderson amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The duo reemerged on July 18 as the newest signees of IMPACT Wrestling at their Slammiversary pay-per-view — but not before they held court with a revealing interview on their Talk ‘N Shop podcast that pulled the curtain back on their time with the WWE, discussed joining IMPACT Wrestling and their own upcoming pay per view Talk ‘N Shop A Mania that takes place on Aug. 1. last_img read more
