The Department for Infrastructure and Transport advises there will be temporary full closures of the Belair and Outer Harbor/Grange rail lines from approximately 7:30pm on Sunday, 27 September until 5:30am on Monday, 28 September for essential electrical maintenance.

Essential maintenance work on the Adelaide Railway Station exhaust fans is being undertaken, requiring the fans to be turned off, which prohibits diesel trains from operating.
