Alliance awarded design and construct contract for Oaklands rail crossing in South Australia

29 January 2018

Arup: An Alliance of the South Australian Government Department of Planning, Transport, and Infrastructure (DPTI), McConnell Dowell, Arup and Mott MacDonald has been formed to design and construct a project to grade separate the Oaklands rail crossing on the Seaford train line, approximately 13km south of Adelaide.

The current level crossing generates congestion on busy Morphett and Diagonal Roads, with boom gates down for approximately 25 per cent of the peak traffic periods. Once completed the new crossing will improve travel times, enhance public safety, and act as a positive catalyst for development and renewal throughout the local area.

We’re delighted to celebrate this appointment with our Alliance partners, DPTI, McConnell Dowell and Mott MacDonald. It’s an exciting time for infrastructure in South Australia, and Arup looks forward to bringing our local and global expertise in road rail grade separations to this significant project for the State, helping to improve safety and ease traffic congestion at the busy Oaklands Crossing. ” - Liam O'DonohueTransport Leader, Victoria and South Australia

The Oakland Rail Crossing project is an important component of the State Government’s Integrated Transport and Land Use Plan, which is aimed at enhancing the connections between people and places across South Australia.

The final design will be completed by the third quarter of 2018 and site work is due to begin mid-2018.
