On the plus side, with how far behind the Gawler line electrification is, the construction of this overpass isn’t causing additional line closures. :lol:
Could it be that the Ovingham work was a factor in the indefinite extension of the line closure from the last stated resumption date of November 2021? The lift yesterday required possession of the track adjacent to the new girders. Similar possessions will be needed this week for the second pair of eastern girders and for the spans over the track which I understand will be installed next week.

The freight line surely remains open most of the time. If so the Ovingham level crossing removal project would need occasional line closures to prevent freight trains passing through when they need to work around/over the line.

I don't think the line is operated at capacity so it is possible there are sufficient gaps to not interrupt the freight? It might be closed for blocks of four-six hours, not days/weeks at a time.
