Automated Train Protection Signals Upgrade - Seaford Line

Funding Program:Urban Congestion Fund
Status:In planning
Transport Mode:Rail
Expected Start/Finish:Mid 2022 - Mid 2024
Estimated Project Cost:$10,000,000
Australian Government Contribution:$5,000,000
Corridor:Adelaide Urban

Project Description

DIT together with its sub-ordinate operational centre the Adelaide Metropolitan Passenger Rail Network (AMPRN) propose to upgrade the Automatic Train Protection (ATP) signalling system. The efficiency of the signalling system will improve the safety, reliability and efficiency of both the rail and road networks. The upgrade to the Seaford line signals will potentially remove or reduce speed restrictions for trains and automate an at grade pedestrian crossing.


This will reduce road closure times and increase the efficiency of the rail operations. This improvement will have a direct improvement at the Hove Level Crossing where rail closure times have already being identified as contributing to road congestion.


Total Project Costs are expected to be $10 million under a 50:50 arrangement.


Implementation works to commence Mid 2022 and be completed mid-2024.
