Exciting news for our Dock One masterplanned community.

 

After almost 30 years, train services will return to the heart of Port Adelaide with a $16.4 million State Budget commitment to build a new spur line and train station.

The new one-kilometre spur line will link the Port’s commercial centre and the Dock One residential precinct to the Adelaide CBD.

It will provide frequent rail services for those who already call the area home and the many more set to live, work and visit Port Adelaide, which is undergoing a major redevelopment.

The project will include re-construction and duplication of the spur line from the existing Outer Harbor line at Grand Junction Road and the construction of a brand new railway station at Baker Street.

State Government initiatives - including buying back nearly 23 hectares of waterfront land and making it available to developers, moving 500 public servants to work in the Port and activating its streets - are already transforming the historic precinct into a thriving residential, commercial and tourist destination.

The new station will be located on the doorstep of the Dock One waterfront redevelopment which will include more than 750 new townhouses and apartments, a refurbished Marine and Harbours building, and waterfront boardwalk.

Construction will start next year and will support 48 jobs during construction.
