With proper design, only one house (#1 Devonport Tce - marked yellow in attached), might have to go, to make way for the Torrens Rd overpass and associated ramping + earthworks. Overall that would be a good result, if practical to do so. Other changes, such as Ovingham Station, shouldn't impact on other private land.

Here are some photos from Tuesday, just had these two handed out and had a quick chat with the three PTP employees that were there and they spent the afternoon walking around and door knocking residents.

Had some info from them, ish. They are looking at a few options for this crossing and are at the early design phase, with the plan hopefully out by "very early next year". They won't touch the Hawker Street crossing as it's not within the scope of the project, but as I caught the train into town I saw that traffic had backed all the way into War Memorial Drive :(

After seeing this and hearing that the Park Terrace Bridge is too low for the new electric trains to run under. That a sunken crossing removal would be the way forward, increasing the project scope to North Adelaide Station, but that's just an idea :P
Though they will need to figure this out while also keeping the ARTC line up and running too :banana:
