Gawler Rail Electrification Project – Works Notification – Weekend Impacts to Salisbury Highway

As part of the Gawler Rail Electrification Project, the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that overhead high voltage works will be undertaken adjacent the rail corridor and across the Salisbury Highway between Gawler Street and the Gawler rail line overpass.

Locations: Across Salisbury Highway, adjacent the Gawler rail line overpass. Please see the map overleaf which shows the work zone and impacted section of the Salisbury Highway.

When: Works across the Salisbury Highway will occur on the following weekends:

  • Saturday and Sunday, 30 and 31 May, between the hours of 7am and 7pm
  • Saturday and Sunday, 6 and 7 June, between the hours of 7am and 7pm

Activities: Modification to existing overhead high voltage lines.

Traffic Impacts: In order to maintain safety during high risk works, traffic on the Salisbury highway will be slowed and stopped intermittently during the above work hours.

Traffic management will be in place to control traffic flow. Road users are asked to use extra caution when travelling through the area, follow the directions of traffic controllers and observe traffic signage and speed restrictions.

Please plan ahead, expect delays in the area and seek an alternate route if possible. The map overleaf shows the impacted section of the Salisbury Highway.

Work crews will make every effort to minimise the disturbance to local traffic during works.

Rail Line Impacts: These works take advantage of the full Gawler rail closure which will already be place during the above weekends. For details regarding replacement bus services during the Gawler rail line closures please refer to the Adelaide Metro website:

Thank you for your patience as we undertake this important project and associated works.
