REMINDER: Partial closure of the Gawler rail line

7 April 2020

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) reminds public transport users of a partial closure of the Gawler rail line, between Adelaide and Salisbury station, after last service Friday, 10 April to last service Friday, 24 April.

The partial closures are required to facilitate construction works for the Gawler Rail Electrification Project that cannot be safely undertaken with trains operating and to minimise the impact for customers. This closure has been timed to coincide with the school holidays when patronage is lower.

Trains will resume their normal timetabled service from Saturday morning, 25 April.

Train services will operate between Salisbury Interchange and the Gawler Central Station. Substitute buses will be in place to transport passengers between Salisbury Interchange and the Adelaide Railway Station.

During the closure, the Gawler weekday train timetable will change, with trains to turn back at the Salisbury Railway Station.

Please note there will be a weekend closure of the full Gawler rail line after last service Friday, 17 April until last service Sunday, 19 April. All trains will be cancelled and substitute buses will be in place to transport passengers between the Adelaide Railway Station and the Gawler Central Station.

DPTI thanks commuters for their patience while these works are undertaken.

The Australian and South Australian Governments are jointly funding the $615 million electrification of the Gawler rail line, which will deliver a faster, cleaner and more reliable service, delivering an electrified network through Adelaide from Gawler to Seaford.

The project, which is expected to be completed in 2021, will support increased capacity and future growth for development along the rail corridor and in northern Adelaide.
