The preferred design for the removal of the Ovingham level crossing in Adelaide’s inner north has been released.
Torrens Road will be elevated over the Gawler and freight railway lines in a $231 million works package. The western end of Churchill Road will also be raised to meet Torrens Road at the same elevation.
Tender for the project has been announced and a contract will be awarded later in 2020 with work to begin in 2021.
The design was chosen not only for its impact on traffic and constructability, but the minimal disruption to rail users and the freight line while the road is lifted above the track.
Federal Minister for Population, Cities and Urban Infrastructure Alan Tudge said the project will have improve safety and traffic flow.
“Not only will this bust congestion, but it will give the SA economy an essential boost and it will mean more local jobs,” he said.
South Australian Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government Stephan Knoll said the current design of the road causes delays.
“At the moment the boom gates at this level crossing are down for around 26 minutes during both peak periods which causes traffic delays and frustrates motorists.
“Once complete, this level crossing upgrade will ensure motorists never have to wait for a train to pass again here, making their ride to and from work or home safer and faster.”
The Ovingham project is expected to be complete by 2023.
