What a journey it has been! This morning trains pulled in at the lowered Oaklands Railway Station. It was a fantastic sight, and certainly one our community has worked long and hard to see achieved.
Whilst project works will continue for the rest of 2019, including removing the old station, car park construction, roadworks, SA Water asset installations and landscaping, I can feel the community’s relief at no longer having to wait for trains at Oaklands Crossing!
Once again, I want to thank the community for their patience during the remaining works and look forward to when the project is complete and we have “Fixed Oaklands Crossing”.

Access to and from the new station will be as per the map below. Construction zones will be fenced off to ensure safety for the public and construction crews.
Please note that these access points may change as works progress. Further information will be available as it comes to hand.
From tomorrow, Tuesday 7 May 2019 the temporary pedestrian crossing on the southern side of the train line will be removed and access to the station from the western side of Morphett Road will be via the pathway under Morphett Road.
From today, carparking is available on:
- Murray Terrace
- Crozier Terrace
- Railway Terrace
- Temporary carpark next to Coles.
Please note the Kiss ‘N’ Drop on Murray Terrace will remain closed whilst station removal works continue.
Once the old rail track and station has been removed, new car parks will be build on Crozier and Railway Terraces.
