- Future Proof Rail Transport Options
3.2 Rail from Seaford to Aldinga
This project provides an opportunity to service an existing and growing community with improved public transport and access to job opportunities
It will require a rail corridor from Seaford Rise to Aldinga for a distance of approximately 10km to cater for a future rail extension.
In addition to the 10km rail corridor to the Aldinga land, options to secure a possible future spur-line of approximately 1.2km from Aldinga to the Aldinga District Centre would be desirable.
Currently Aldinga residents (approximately 60%) are forced to commute daily for work and experience social isolation due to fewer public transport options.
A rail extension to Aldinga would provide a range of benefits:
- Improved accessibility would help people to have better access to job opportunities within the South (Noarlunga, Seaford, Lonsdale, Port Stanvac, Tonsley, Marion and the CBD)
- Create opportunities for tourism by linking Adelaide to the world class wine region of McLaren Vale located adjacent to the Aldinga township
- Stimulate more and longer travel on public transport with less reliance on cars thereby improving environment outcomes
