Train services on the Outer Harbor and Grange lines have resumed after a 10-day closure in which almost 50,000 hours of construction work was undertaken.
Gawler line train services resumed last week after a 7-day closure as part of the same works on the $238m Torrens Rail Junction Project.
More than 375 people were employed during the closure for works including:
More than 400 tonnes of reinforcing steel was used during the closure – part of an estimated 6,000 tonnes expected for the project to be sourced from Arrium.
Also during the closure approximately 250 piles were drilled and constructed.
The Torrens Rail Junction Project will increase the flow of freight by removing a major pinch-point in Adelaide’s rail freight and road networks.
The project will separate the interstate freight rail line from the Outer Harbor passenger line and build a rail underpass at Park Terrace removing the level crossing which holds up traffic for more than two hours every weekday.
