Elizabeth railway station is located on the Gawler Central line.[1] Situated on the border of the northern Adelaide suburbs of Elizabeth and Edinburgh, it is 25.8 kilometres from Adelaide station. Elizabeth is one of the busiest stations on the Adelaide suburban system.[citation needed]

History[edit]

Elizabeth station opened in 1960, being rebuilt in 1999 with one island platform that was accessible by an underground pedestrian subway. It included a 40–50 metre roof.

Redevelopment 2012[edit]

In March 2012, the station was rebuilt in a $15 million project. The work involved demolition of the island platform, construction of two side platforms, the track re-aligned, and other changes made in preparation for the aborted electrification of the Gawler Central line.[2][3][4][5][6]

As some peak-hour services were to terminate at Elizabeth, the rebuild included the addition of a siding just north of the station to allow trains to stable clear of the main line. The western platform is accessed both by a level crossing and an overpass.
