The Oaklands rail crossing is located 12.8km south of Adelaide on the Seaford train line at the intersection of Morphett and Diagonal Roads.
Traffic will flow at Oaklands Crossing after the announcement of a $174m agreement between Marion, State and Federal Governments on 7 June 2017. The Federal Government will contribute $95 million and the State Government $74.3, with construction expected to begin in the first half of 2018.
Marion Council has made an in-principle commitment to contribute $5 million in land, roadworks and green space while facilitating a special planning zone to allow high-density developments.
The long-awaited plan to end 40 years of traffic congestion comes after we launched a campaign in April 2016, calling on the State and Federal Governments to work together to fund and build a grade separation of road and rail to fix Oaklands crossing.
DPTI is looking at a solution that improves safety for all road users and eases traffic congestion at the busy intersection.
