Upcoming weekend works - Outer Harbor Rail Line works, Croydon

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

30 March 2016

As part of the $896 million Torrens Road to River Torrens Project, there will be a temporary partial closure of the Outer Harbor rail line between Adelaide Station and Woodville Station from Saturday 9 April 2016 until the first service Monday 11 April 2016.

Works include the construction of retaining walls and base for the new Outer Harbor rail overpass.

To ensure the safety of workers these activities must be undertaken when trains are not operating and will occur continuously during the line closure period.

Day Terrace, Croydon will be closed at South Road from 7pm Friday 8 April 2016 and will reopen to traffic at 6am Monday 11 April 2016.

Works at Day Terrace from South Road to the level crossing include the installation of concrete noise walls and vegetation removal.

 The removal of this vegetation will be offset with new landscaping which will be developed in consultation with Council.
Euston Terrace will be open to local traffic only from Queen Street, Croydon.

Works at Euston Terrace and South Road to Coglin Street include preparation work for the rail overpass and installation of a signalling trench.

Access to properties will be maintained during these works although there will be no on-street parking available.

Night works will be managed to minimise disturbance to the local community as much as possible.

Traffic management will be in place to alert motorists to the changed traffic conditions.

 There will also be some speed restrictions on South Road in the vicinity of the works area. Motorists and pedestrians are advised to follow the direction of traffic controllers.

Substitute bus services will be in place during the temporary partial Outer Harbor line closure, please call the Adelaide Metro InfoLine on 1300 311 108 or visit
