Temporary Seaford rail line closure for essential works

24 December 2015

A reminder that there will be full and partial rail closures on the Seaford rail line between Christmas and Australia Day to undertake essential works.

There will be a partial Seaford line closure between Brighton and Seaford from January 4 to 25, reopening on the 26 January (Australia Day).

The closures were timed to coincide with quieter periods on the rail network with substitute buses replacing all services.

The works are to replace catenary wire.

This work will ensure the long-term usage of the electrified Seaford line.

During the full closures substitute buses will be available at all stations. During the partial closure from the 4 – 25 January trains will continue to run between Brighton and the city with substitute buses running between Seaford and Brighton.

There will be signage and staff in place directing the public to the appropriate substitute buses to help lessen the inconvenience to passengers.

Full details of the closures will be available at or call the Adelaide Metro Infoline on 1300 311 108 (7 am to 8 pm daily).
