New ticket validation gates at Salisbury Railway Station

When: From Monday 11 September 2017

New ticket gates have been installed at the Salisbury Railway Station and will be operational from Monday 11 September 2017 as part of a $2.1 million package to reduce fare evasion which costs the public transport network millions of dollars each year.

The ticket validation gates are similar to those in operation at the Adelaide Railway Station, where passengers will need to swipe their metroCARD or validate their Metroticket to gain access to and from the platform. 

New MetroCard ticketing systems have also been installed on the platform along with enhanced passenger information systems and measures to improve safety at the station, which is one of Adelaide Metro’s busiest.

Improvements include new closed circuit TV cameras, improved lighting, new fencing and a new footpath to improve accessibility between the station entrance and the northern footpath.

Sliding gates have been installed next to the ticket validation gates to provide an alternative access point for people with prams, wheelchairs and other mobility devices, or for use in an emergency.

Security and safety patrols will be increased at adjacent railway stations to guard against passengers who try to avoid the ticket gates by disembarking just before or after the Salisbury interchange.
