GAWLER traffic descended into chaos for over two hours on Friday after a technical error caused several sets of boom-gates to stay lowered, leaving King Street as the only open access to and from the north.
ELECTRIC trains will arrive in Gawler several years earlier than scheduled, after the State Government announced the second and final stage of the electrification project will be complete by the end of 2020.
LOCAL commuters are calling for an increase to the number of carriages on the Gawler railway line due to the high levels of congestion during peak hours.
AFTER almost a decade of stopping and starting, the project to modernise the Gawler railway line will, finally, move ahead, however local commuters will have to wait over a decade to make use of it.
POLICE are investigating whether a rock was placed on railway tracks in Evanston last week, causing local trains to be suspended for an hour.
A CAUTIOUS optimism is growing within the local community, as the State Government seeks to bring the complete electrification of the Gawler rail line back on track.
