When: From Tuesday 11 April 2017

As part of the Torrens Rail Junction Project, the city bound platform at Bowden Railway Station will be closed from last service Tuesday 11 April 2017 until the end of October 2017, in preparation for the future lowering of the Outer Harbor passenger rail line. 

Passengers who usually board or alight at the city bound platform are encouraged to use nearby alternative public transport services as listed below.

The outbound platform will remain open until September 2017.

There will be no change to train timetables on the Grange or Outer Harbor train lines.

Alternative services

  • If passengers wish to alight near Bowden station they can do so at stop 6 Port Road
  • Passengers who usually catch the tram at Bowden to the city are advised they can catch a free tram from the Entertainment Centre stop or a 150 bus service from Port Road
