Adelaide’s crucial Oaklands Crossing project will proceed following agreement between the Commonwealth and South Australian governments along with the local council.
Construction on the $174 million project will begin next year, taking the Seaford rail line underneath Diagonal Road. The multi-million project is being jointly funded by the Australian Government - $95 million, the State Government - $74 million and the City of Marion - $5 million.

Local industry participation will be a focus in line with the South Australian Industry Participation Policy. This policy aims to promote the use of South Australian businesses, suppliers and workers. Steel will be purchased under the State government’s Steel Procurement Policy and South Australian products will be used wherever possible
Planning works are now being undertaken, looking at how private sector investment can be harnessed toward the project through value-capture development opportunities. The next step on this project will see finalisation of the design and layout of the upgrade.
