  • With the expected increased usage of rail for passenger transport (TOD's at Woodville West and Woodville Station) can we assume there will be an increased number of trains running? Currently it is not unusual to have Woodville Rd railway cossing closed for 3 consecutive trains and indeed sometimes 4, has any thought been given to building a subway to avoid traffic waiting times at the crossing? Increased passengers must mean either longer trains/boarding time or more frequent trains, and congestion on Woodville Rd is increasing (prior to the recent temporary closure of the Woodville - Adelaide railway line.

    Thank you for your question. Trains, level crossings and Woodville Road is managed by the State Government Department of Planning Transport and Infrastructure. As far as Council is aware there are no plans by the State Government to either underground or construct an over pass at this location. The State priorities, at this point, appear to be more the North South Connector (South Road) or addressing level crossing for freight routes e.g Leader Street Goodwood. Much of funding for these works is provided by the Commonwealth to the State Government who must compete against Eastern States for a share of the funding. In terms of improving service you are right in suggesting more frequent services or longer trains will result if demand increases. Better reliability and scheduling may further assist the impacts on Woodville Road. The intended housing growth is planned to be located adjacent good public transport with the aim of encouraging more to use public transport which again should increase as frequency and reliability improves. For further information I suggest you contact the State Government Department of Planning Transport and Infrastructure. Hopefully this answers your question.
