Goodwood’s Victoria Street level crossing was reopened this afternoon after being closed during works on the Goodwood Junction Upgrade project.
The crossing has been closed to vehicles since December last year to allow for early works to realign the Brown Hill Creek Culvert and then closed to pedestrians and cyclists since April for safety reasons during construction of the new Goodwood Junction.
Motorists and local residents are thanked for their continued patience during the closure of the Victoria Street crossing.
Major works on the $110 million, 550-metre underpass to separate freight and passenger rail services at Goodwood, are contributing to a more modern, more efficient rail network.
Landscaping, fencing and electrification works are still underway but the project is very close to completion.
The project team is working to complete these works as safely and as efficiently as possible to provide Adelaide with a faster, modern, rail service and improved transport corridors.
The project will allow for better running for Belair and Noarlunga rail services while reducing delays to traffic on Cross Road.
Based on a safety review and feedback from the local community, Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure and the City of Unley will only allow left turns from Victoria St on to Lyons Parade.
