Adelaide Metro reminds train passengers the existing Tonsley rail line, which currently ends at Clovelly Park Railway Station, will be temporarily closed from last service today, 20 November 2020, before it reopens as the Flinders rail line.

The line will remain closed until commissioning and driver training can be completed on the new line, and will depend on COVID-19 restrictions.

Substitute buses will be in place for commuters during the closure, following the current train timetables as closely as possible and servicing stations between Clovelly Park and Woodlands Park. To provide customers between the Adelaide and Woodlands Park Railway Stations additional travel options, some Seaford express services will stop all stations during the closure. For information about substitute buses, please visit: www.adelaidemetro.com.au.

The new Tonsley Railway Station will open to commuters when the line re-opens, with Clovelly Park Railway Station closed permanently from the last service today, 20 November 2020. The new Tonsley Railway Station will replace the decommissioned Clovelly Park Railway Station.

When the new Flinders rail line is opened it will operate under a timetable which offers:

  • extended services until late on weeknights;
  • a 20-minute frequency during peak times on weekdays;
  • a 30 minute frequency at all other times; and
  • new weekend services from early morning to late night (from the weekend of 26-27 December 2020).
