Project Details


On 9 May 2017, the State Government announced that the electrification of the Gawler rail line from Adelaide to Salisbury will resume in 2017-18 transforming Adelaides rail network in delivering 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. It will also adhere to the Government's Industry Participation Policy which supports local jobs and local contractors and will strictly adhere to the State Government's policy requiring all steel to be sourced from Australian-standard certified fabricators and mills.


The tender process for the electrification of the Gawler rail line commenced 10 May 2017 with registrations of interest opened to companies seeking to tender for the project. The Gawler rail electrification works will include:

  •  Installation of the overhead wiring system including masts and gantry supports
  •  Installation of a new signalling system
  •  Installation of an Automatic Train Protection system
  •  Installation of a new fibre optic communications system cable
  •  Installation of protective works and modifications to existing infrastructure
  •  Service relocations, vegetation trimming and removal and other works necessary to enable the electrification to proceed
  • Signalling system upgrades and public safety improvements, including pedestrian level crossing enhancements and corridor fencing, will also form part of the Stage One works.

The South Australian Government is expecting to award the major works contract in December 2017, and site works is anticipated to commence early in 2018. The project is likely to be completed by June 2020.
