Torrens Rail Junction - Permanent closure of Bowden Station pedestrian underpass

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

23 March 2017

As part of the Torrens Rail Junction Project, the Bowden Railway Station pedestrian underpass will permanently close from Tuesday 28 March 2017, in preparation for the future lowering of the Outer Harbor passenger rail line.

The Gibson Street level crossing will also be temporarily closed to traffic, pedestrians and cyclists from Saturday 25 March 2017 to Sunday 2 April 2017 to allow piling works to be undertaken.

Alternative detour routes will be in place via East Street, and signage will alert motorists to the changed traffic conditions.

These works include demolishing 50 metres of the Gibson Street end of city bound railway platform and adjacent the Outer Harbor Greenway, and removing the shelter on the city bound platform. This work will not impact regular Adelaide Metro train services and the remaining section of the city bound platform will remain accessible.

The Outer Harbor Greenway will be closed between Drayton Street and Park Terrace from Saturday 25 March 2017 to Sunday 2 April 2017. Alternate routes will be signposted and details are available at Cycle Instead (

Works will be managed to minimise disturbance to local residents, however some noise can be expected.
