Project Details


The Public Transport Projects Alliance is a bundled program of key public transport capital initiatives announced in the 2017-18 State Budget. The program of works, as described below, seeks to achieve a range of objectives relating to network optimisation, public transport patronage uplift and safety.


Sub-project 1: Oaklands Rail Crossing Grade Separation

The Oaklands Rail Crossing is located 12.8km south of Adelaide on the Seaford mainline at the intersection of Morphett and Diagonal Roads. As a result of the Seaford Line rail services, the level crossing is active up to 25% of the time during peak, imposing significant congestion and traffic delays on Morphett and Diagonal Roads.

The Oaklands Rail Crossing Grade Separation project is a proposal to separate the road and rail networks by a rail underpass. The project is a jointly funded initiative between the South Australian and Australian Governments.  The objectives of the Oaklands Rail Crossing Grade Separation project are to:

  • Grade separate the rail / road level crossing to improve operation and safety of both the traffic and rail network.
  • Improve public transport and passenger access including bus-train interchange; and access to the Marion Precinct.
  • Integrate and enable future commercial development within the Marion Precinct.
  • Minimise disruption to public transport passengers and road users during construction.


Sub-project 2: Port Dock Railway Line

The Port Dock Railway Line project involves the construction of new rail infrastructure with the intention of returning train services into the heart of Port Adelaide. The objectives of the Port Dock Railway Line project are to:

  • Improve public transport and passenger access to the heart of Port Adelaide;
  • Assist in the activation of the Port Adelaide precincts including McLarens Wharf precinct; Dock 1 precinct; Woolsheds & Port Approach; and the Commercial Retail Core;
  • Improve bus to train passenger transfer;
  • Minimise disruption to adjacent stakeholders.


Sub-project 3: Klemzig and Tea Tree Gully Park'n'rides

The Klemzig and Tea Tree Gully Park and Ride project involves increasing the availability for O-Bahn passengers to access parking facilities. The objectives of the O-Bahn Park and Ride initiative project are to:

  • Increase the number of Park and Ride spaces at the Tea Tree Plaza and Klemzig O-Bahn Interchanges;
  • Improve passenger accessibility at the Tea Tree Plaza and Klemzig interchanges.


The South Australian Government has awarded the major contract to the Public Transport Projects Alliance (PTP Alliance) consisting of McConnell Dowell, Mott MacDonald and Arup. Detailed design works to remove the Oaklands Park level crossing will begin immediately.
