Lendlease to deliver full Gawler Rail Electrification

24 July 2018

Lendlease: The full electrification and modernisation of the Gawler Rail Line will be completed by 2020, following the award of the next stage of the project to Lendlease.

The first stage of the project between Adelaide and Salisbury is already being delivered by Lendlease, with detailed design work currently underway to now incorporate the full rail line to Gawler.

Once complete the electrified line will provide increased capacity on one of Adelaide’s busiest rail lines and provide train commuters with a faster, cleaner and more reliable service.

The scope of works for Stage Two of the upgrade includes:

Lendlease’s track record in South Australia stretches back 70 years and today includes projects such as the Northern Connector Project, Air 7000 at Edinburgh Air Force Base, ANI Osborne South Shipyard and Blakes Crossing. Past projects include all phases of the Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide Oval, Flinders at Tonsley and the Southern Expressway Duplication project.

Quotes attributable to Craig Laslett, CEO Engineering & Services:

“We look forward to contributing our rail expertise to modernise Adelaide’s rail network, ultimately delivering a better passenger experience on the city’s busiest rail line.

“We have a long history working in South Australia and this project will allow us to further extend our support of local workers and local industry through initiatives such as our NorthHub employment and training facility.”
