Outer Harbor

The Outer Harbor railway line shares part of its run with the Grange line and, between Adelaide Railway Station and the Port Adelaide Junction, is the oldest section of railway in Adelaide.  

Outer Harbor and Grange line closure January 2 - January 23 2017

DPTI undertook a range of works during January 2017 worth in excess of $44m to ensure reliable and efficient rail services along the Outer Harbor and Grange lines. These works were timed to coincide with the lowest patronage period of the year, and corresponded with construction works for the rail overpass at South Road.
