Tonsley Railway Line, Adelaide - 2012 Line Closure

2012 Line Closure

It was announced on 3 February 2012 that the train service on the Tonsley line would be withdrawn for a year, effective from 27 February 2012, with the service replaced by buses. At Adelaide station, two of the nine platforms will be closed on a rolling basis to allow for overhead works, and for work on the expansion of the Adelaide Convention Centre.

Uncertainty was expressed by some railway enthusiasts as to whether train services would resume after the year-long closure. In response, the Minister for Transport Services, Chloƫ Fox, informally stated that the line "will be reopened early 2013", and subsequently confirmed that there are no plans to permanently close the line.

The closure was extended until September, 2013, for electrification of the line.

Famous quotes containing the word line:

    Our first line of defense in raising children with values is modeling good behavior ourselves. This is critical. How will our kids learn tolerance for others if our hearts are filled with hate? Learn compassion if we are indifferent? Perceive academics as important if soccer practice is a higher priority than homework?
    Fred G. Gosman (20th century)
