Drivers of trucks and vehicles with high aerials must ensure they do not exceed height limits when passing under electrified wires along the southern rail network.
In June 2013 the new electrified rail network along the Adelaide to Seaford line (including the Tonsley line) will be made live to commence testing of electric trains.
Heavy vehicle drivers are reminded to take note of the electric wires now installed above the rail tracks when passing through rail crossings.
The overhead wires, their metallic supports and fittings will be carrying electrical current at all times.
The wires are approximately 7.3 metres high and they should be given a clearance of three metres to ensure safety.
The northern line from Adelaide to Dry Creek will be the next to be electrified.
