Gawler rail electrification underway


The transformation of Adelaide’s rail network continues with the tender process for the electrification of the Gawler rail commencing today.

Registrations of interest are opened to companies seeking to tender for the project which will deliver faster, cleaner, more frequent and more efficient services.

Stage One of the project is being fully funded by the State Government at a cost of $152.5 million and will involve electrifying the rail line to Salisbury, supporting approximately 135 jobs per year during construction.

Signalling system upgrades and public safety improvements, including pedestrian level crossing enhancements and corridor fencing, will also form part of the Stage One works.

An upgrade of Salisbury station is currently underway which will include the installation of ticket validation gates, new ticket machines, improved CCTV and lighting, and extra disability parking.

The Gawler electrification project will strictly adhere to the State Government’s policy requiring all steel to be sourced from Australian-standard certified fabricators and mills. It will also adhere to the Government’s Industry Participation Policy which supports local jobs and local contractors.
