Closure - Belair line - weekends only

From Saturday 25 September 2021 to Sunday 10 October 2021
Modes affected:
Routes affected:

A section of the Belair line will be closed between Adelaide Railway Station and Mitcham Station on:

  • Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 September 2021
  • Saturday 2, Sunday 3 and Monday 4 October 2021 (October long weekend)
  • Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 October 2021

Trains will still run between Belair and Mitcham Station. Substitute buses will run between Mitcham Station and Adelaide Railway Station.

Passengers traveling from Goodwood to Seaford can still access the Seaford line rail service.

These closures are due to works on the Gawler Rail Electrification Project and 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.

Substitute routes and stops

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.

  • The B1 service will operate between Mitcham and Adelaide Railway Station.

Substitute buses will stop at substitute bus stops that will be located as close to the Belair line stations as possible.

You can find the substitute bus stops for Mitcham, Unley Park, Millswood, Goodwood and Adelaide Showgrounds in the timetables below.


Weekends and public holidays

Wheelchair, mobility aid and pram passengers

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.

Bicycle passengers

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.
