Traffic successfully ‘switched’ a second time to enable bridgeworks to continue
Morphett Road traffic was successfully ‘switched’ for the second time on Sunday 7 October 2018.
During the weekend rail track occupation, the boom gates and road traffic were diverted onto the new western side of the Morphett Road bridge.
This new diversion allowed the crossing to stay open while the project began bridgeworks on the eastern side of the Morphett Road area.
The Morphett Road bridge spans over the lowered Oaklands Railway Station and railway line. The bridge is positioned at the current ground level, with the new lowered station and rail line travelling underneath.
