Free sub services for Outer Harbor / Grange / Gawler temporary closure

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

22 September 2017

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that the Outer Harbor and Grange rail lines will be temporarily closed from 10pm Sunday 24 September 2017 for works to continue on the Torrens Rail Junction Project.

Adelaide Metro will be providing FREE substitute buses for Grange, Outer Harbor and Gawler line passengers for the duration of the closure. Train passengers between Gawler Central and Mawson Lakes will also travel for free during this period.

The $238 million project involves separating the freight and passenger rail lines and removing level crossings at Park Terrace and Gibson Street and East Street.

Outer Harbor and Grange lines

  • The Outer Harbor and Grange lines will close from 10pm on Sunday 24 September until early December
  • The last passenger train services to depart Adelaide Railway Station will be:
    • 7.57pm to Grange
    • 8.12pm to Outer Harbor
  • The last passenger train services to depart Outer Harbor and Grange:
    • 8.33pm (from Grange)
    • 9.00pm (from Outer Harbor)
  • Buses will pick up and set down at Stop W1 North Terrace, opposite the Adelaide Railway Station.

The Gawler line will be temporarily closed between Adelaide and Mawson Lakes from Sunday 1 October until Sunday 15 October, returning to service for the commencement of school Term 4 on Monday 16 October 2017.

Temporary timetables for substitute buses are available on the Adelaide Metro website or alternatively commuters can contact the Adelaide Metro InfoLine on 1300 311 108 for assistance.

Passengers transferring from free services to regular Adelaide Metro services will still require a fare.

Adelaide Metro’s free metroMATE app for Apple or Android also provides real-time information about services and details on disruptions and delays.

Signage will be in place at affected train stations and substitute bus stops to direct passengers.

Thank you for your patience whilst these important works are undertaken.
