A section of the Seaford line will be closed between Adelaide Railway Station and Adelaide Showground Station on:
Trains will still run between Seaford Interchange and Adelaide Showground Station. Substitute buses will run between Adelaide Showground Station and Adelaide Railway Station.
These closures are due to works on the Gawler Rail Electrification Project, to connect the new overhead electrical wiring for the Gawler line to the existing wiring for the Seaford and Flinders lines. The work cannot be done safely with trains operating within Adelaide Yard. While we try to have as few closures as we can, these temporary closures need to be done to keep our passengers and workers safe.
As these closures will be in place during the SANFL Grand Final, there will be extra substitute buses for the event. Please plan ahead and allow for extra travel time.
We will always try to provide enough services to meet the timetable. However, traffic conditions, roadworks, and accidents may cause delays in the frequency of substitute buses.
Substitute buses will stop at substitute bus stops that will be located as close to the railway stations as possible. You can find substitute bus stop locations in the timetables below.
Weekends and public holidays:
Substitute buses are accessible for people with wheelchairs, mobility aids and prams. If you are unable to board the bus directly, the driver can set up a ramp for you to use.
If you use a large mobility device that does not fit on Adelaide Metro buses, contact Busways’ Lonsdale depot at 7260 0100 to request an accessible taxi. This service is available from train station to train station only and not a door-to-door service.
Bicycles are not allowed on buses for safety reasons – there is not enough space for people to move around them or anywhere to secure them.
