Electrifying the
Gawler Railway Line

Our electrification of the Gawler railway line will deliver faster, safer, more comfortable public transport.

What we've done

The Marshall Liberal Government is creating jobs and delivering modern and reliable public transport for people in the northern suburbs by electrifying the Gawler railway line.

Unlike Labor who promised this upgrade way back in 2008 but never funded or delivered it, we got on with the job. We secured federal funding for this upgrade within months of being elected and have made significant progress on this important project in our first term.

This project is part of our record $17.9 billion Building What Matters infrastructure program which is creating thousands of jobs and improving the lives of South Australians.

What it means for you

  • Faster, safer, more comfortable public transport
  • Less congestion on our roads
  • More local jobs
