A rail line closure in Adelaide's southern suburbs has been extended until November, so more track upgrade work can be done.
The Tonsley line has been closed since January and was due to open again by September.
But the South Australian Government has decided to keep the line closed for several extra weeks to allow its duplication as part of the Tonsley Park public transport project.
Transport Minister Tom Koutsantonis said bringing forward that work would be an advantage.
"Contractors are currently working on the rail line. If we don't bring the work forward what we'll see is a workforce of about 250 people laid off and brought back on later on when we want to reopen and redo the works on the line," he said.
