Weekend works rail line closures

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

4 December 2020

The Department for Infrastructure and Transport advises there will be temporary full or partial closures for each Adelaide Metro rail line from 11 – 13 December.

The following rail closures are required from approximately 10pm until last service Friday, 11 December, to facilitate works on Adelaide Metro’s electrified rail network:

  • Gawler full line closure between Adelaide Railway Station and Gawler Central, with substitute buses to operate between Adelaide and Gawler
  • Seaford full line closure between Adelaide Railway Station and Seaford Railway Station, with substitute buses to operate between Adelaide and Seaford
  • Belair full line closure, with substitute buses to operate between Adelaide and Belair
  • Outer Harbor and Grange full line closures, with substitute buses to operate between Adelaide and Outer Harbor and Grange.

The following rail closures are required from first service Saturday, 12 December until last service Sunday, 13 December:

  • Gawler partial line closure between Adelaide Railway Station and Salisbury Interchange, with substitute buses to operate between Adelaide and Salisbury
  • Seaford partial line closure between Adelaide Railway Station and Brighton Railway Station, with substitute buses to operate between Adelaide and Brighton
  • Belair full line closure, with substitute buses to operate between Adelaide and Belair
  • Outer Harbor and Grange full line closures, with substitute buses to operate between Adelaide and Outer Harbor and Grange.

As previously announced, the ongoing Gawler partial line closure is required for works as part of the Gawler Rail Electrification Project.

The Department has taken this opportunity to schedule other works which require full or partial line closures so that they can all be undertaken concurrently, and on a weekend when patronage is typically lower, to minimise overall impacts to rail passengers.

The partial Seaford line closure is required to allow essential maintenance works to be undertaken on the line’s overhead wiring system.

The remaining Belair, Outer Harbor and Grange full line closures are required to facilitate electrification works within Adelaide Railway Yard.

These works are required as part of the Gawler Railway Electrification Project and cannot be carried out while trains are operating within any of the rail corridors leading in to Adelaide Railway Station.

More information on these rail closures and the substitute buses is available at www.adelaidemetro.com.au/Announcements2/Rail-closures-and-maintenance.

The Department thanks you for your patience while these important works are undertaken.
