Level crossing upgrades on the SteamRanger Heritage Railway
11 Oct 2018
Works to upgrade two level crossings on the Mount Barker to Victor Harbor railway line at Currency Creek, operated by SteamRanger, will commence this week.
The existing passive ‘Give Way’ controls on the Goolwa Road (Mt Compass – Goolwa Road) railway level crossing and the Alexandrina Road (Main Goolwa – Strathalbyn Road) level crossing will be replaced with flashing light and bell assemblies to improve safety for all road users.
Due to the curves of the Alexandrina Road on the approaches to the crossing, Active Advance Warning Signs (signs with flashing lights that are activated by approaching trains to alert motorists) will also be installed.
Speed restrictions will be in place during construction, with works expected to be completed in December 2018, weather permitting.
The safety of road workers and the travelling public is paramount so please take care when travelling through work zones.
The upgrades are not expected to impact planned train services.
SteamRanger Heritage Railway will be undertaking these works.
$585,200 has been provided by the State Government’s Railway Crossing Safety Improvement Program.
