Overnight rail closures on Seaford and Flinders lines: What you need to know

Upcoming track maintenance will lead to overnight closures on the Seaford and Flinders rail lines from June 28-29.

Residents and commuters using the Seaford and Flinders rail lines should prepare for interruptions, as scheduled maintenance will lead to closures from 9pm on Friday, 28 June until 9am on Saturday, 29 June.

The Department of Transport has announced that the Seaford line will experience a partial closure between Adelaide and Brighton railway stations, while the Flinders line will be completely closed during this period. This disruption is due to essential track maintenance operations that necessitate the temporary suspension of services.

To facilitate continued travel for affected passengers, substitute buses will be available. These buses will service all standard stops from Adelaide to Brighton and onwards to Flinders railway stations. They will ensure connections to all train services arriving and departing from Brighton Station. It is important to note that train operations between Brighton and Seaford will not be affected and will run as per the usual timetable.

The maintenance work involves the removal and replacement of rail sections near the Leader Street level crossing in Goodwood. This operation is critical and cannot be performed safely while regular train services are running. The Department has scheduled the work overnight to lessen the disruption to daily commuters and to avoid conflicting with major local events.

Local residents and road users near the affected areas can be reassured that there will be no access restrictions during the maintenance period.

Service on both the Seaford and Flinders lines is expected to resume normally from 9am on Saturday, 29 June. Passengers are advised to allow extra travel time and to check the updated schedules. Real-time timetable updates and personalised journey planning can be accessed through the Adelaide Metro website, which provides comprehensive travel information and assistance.

The Department has extended its apologies for the inconveniences caused and expressed gratitude towards the commuters for their patience and understanding during these essential maintenance activities.

For further details, updates, and travel planning assistance, passengers are encouraged to visit the Adelaide Metro website or contact their customer service centres.
