Torrens Rail Junction Project

The Goodwood and Torrens Rail Junction Project is a nationally significant project which will result in increased productivity on the Melbourne-Adelaide-Perth rail line as well as reducing delays at level crossings in metropolitan Adelaide. The project will also improve Adelaide’s urban environment through the provision of upgraded cycling and pedestrian linkages.

Stage 1 was completed in 2014 and delivered the Goodwood Rail Junction and Adelaide Showgrounds station projects.

On 6 May 2016, funding approval for Stage 2 works to undertake detailed planning; design and construction works were jointly announced by the Australian and South Australian Governments.  Stage 2 works include the grade separation of freight and passenger rail lines at the Torrens Rail Junction, new overpass on the Mike Turtur Bikeway over the rail line at Goodwood Station, and at-grade improvements for pedestrians and cyclists at the Leader Street rail crossing at Wayville.

North West Corridor Light Rail

The cities of Charles Sturt and Port Adelaide Enfield are united in calling for the construction of a Light Rapid Transit (LRT) rail corridor to link the existing Adelaide Entertainment Centre tram stop to Outer Harbor – the Northwest Corridor Light Rail.

The 28.5km LRT project will utilise the existing 25km priority rail corridor, plus an additional 3.5km tram link along the Port Road median, extending from the existing terminus at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. The link will then divert via Kilkenny road back into the existing corridor.

The project will also include additional spur lines to service both the existing Grange service and to West Lakes and an in-street section with two tram stops in Port Adelaide. A further spur to Semaphore Road could be completed as a future stage.

Adelaide Parklands Upgrade

The Adelaide Park Lands Upgrade involves landscaping, facility and services improvement of the existing Adelaide Park Lands in the western area of the city - equivalent to the size of 2 and a half AFL sporting grounds. The upgrade is located across the road from the Bowden Development and is a partnership between Adelaide City Council, City of Charles Sturt and the Bowden redevelopment.

The plans include play areas, a youth space featuring a skate area, barbecues, tennis and basketball courts, upgraded paths and lighting and a community garden. Through support from the City of Charles Sturt we have included a dedicated youth space and skate area, with design input from local skaters to ensure we got the design right.
