Hove Level Crossing Removal

About the project

The Australian and South Australian Governments have announced $171 million funding towards the removal of the level crossing at Brighton Road, Hove.

The crossing is located approximately 12km south-west of the Adelaide CBD on the Seaford line, on Brighton Road, between Sturt Road and Oaklands Road.

An average of 37,000 vehicles pass through this level crossing each day. The boom gates at Brighton Road, Hove are down for approximately 20 percent of the time during the combined AM and PM peak periods.

Removal of the level crossing will lead to improved:

  • travel times for motorists
  • reliability for buses using Brighton Road
  • safety for all road users (motorists, cyclists and pedestrians) by removing a road-rail crossing point
  • connectivity and liveability for surrounding areas

The project is in its detailed planning and consultation stages to determine concept and preferred design.  Early works are expected to begin in 2021/22 following the conclusion of detailed planning and design work.

What’s next

The contract to undertake the detailed planning and design work that will identify the preferred option for removing the level crossing was awarded to the Public Transport Projects Alliance (PTPA) in August 2019.

Community and stakeholder engagement forms an important part of the planning process. DPTI will engage with residents, land owners, business owners and other stakeholders as the preferred option is developed.  We encourage you to have your say while the planning process is underway (see our contact details below).
