Electrified Gawler line will deliver a faster, cleaner and more reliable service, delivering an electrified network through Adelaide from Gawler to Seaford.

Once complete the electrified line will support increased capacity and future growth for development along the rail corridor and in northern Adelaide.

Further details:

  • Lendlease has been appointed as the head contractor for the design and construction of the entire line between Adelaide and Gawler.
  • Detailed design works commenced in early 2018 for the Adelaide to Salisbury section and will now incorporate the full line to Gawler.
  • The project delivery model will adhere to the South Australian Industry Participation Policy which supports local jobs and local contractors.

This project is expected to support approximately 250 full-time equivalent jobs per year, over the life of the project.

This project is jointly funded by the State and Federal Governments.
