Port Adelaide Viaduct Upgrade

Port Adelaide Viaduct

The upgrade of the Port Adelaide Viaduct was essential to ensure reliable, efficient and comfortable rail services to continue to be the provider for thousands of commuters who access the Outer Harbor line every day.  Built in 1919, the Viaduct (rail bridge) is located 11 kilometres from Adelaide on the Outer Harbor railway line and crosses Commercial Road, Lipson Street and College Street.

Work at the viaduct included replacing approximately 600 metres of railway track (including new sleepers, new rail and new base layer), repairs of structural steelwork, application of new corrosion protection system and station maintenance / minor upgrade works.
