Rail closures for Torrens Junction Project

Postby Eagle Eye » Wed Sep 13, 2017 4:19 pm

The Gawler, Outer Harbor & Grange lines will face temporary closures for up to 2.5 months to continue works on the Torrens Junction project.

The Gawler line will be closed between Adelaide & Mawson Lakes from Sunday 1st October to Sunday 15th October.

The Outer Harbor & Grange lines will face a much longer closure - they will close a few hours after the SANFL Grand Final on Sunday 24th September until Sunday 3rd December.

Looks like the bulk of the Port line tunnel will be constructed during this closure. Sounds like the last train to ever cross Park Tce at grade will be on Sunday 24th September.
Time to get bus priority and tram priority through the city and suburbs.
Time to police bus lanes which are used by arrogant car drivers.
Time to work for better timetables and better connections.

I would imagine that both Lonsdale and Morphettvilles "R" series Scania Artics will get used on these substitute services.

Torrens have managed to cover all the other recent Outer Hbr/Grange line closures (weekdays and weekends) without using the R series artics. And they now have two extra artics down from Darwin.

torrens are really good at building rail sub work into shifts compared to other operators who have them as seperate shifts. When did these 2 artics arrive? and what make are they and im guessing they are parked at Mile End

They are Volgren-bodied L94UAs according to the 'To Be Delivered' page in the Fleet Lists.

They are certainly going to need extra buses once the school holidays are over,as currently they don't have enough spares.
