The busy Salisbury Station in Adelaide has received new ticket gates to reduce fare evasion along with other upgrades to enhance passenger safety.
The new gates require passengers to swipe their Metrocard or validate their Metroticket to pass through to and from the station platform.
They form part of the government’s $2.1 million commitment to reduce fare evasion, which will also fund new ticket gates at Noarlunga interchange, which is to start in October.
“Our government takes a zero-tolerance approach to fare evasion, which costs our public transport network millions of dollars every year – money which could be reinvested in providing better public transport services for everyone,” state transport minister Stephen Mullighan said.
New MetroCard ticketing machines have also been installed at the station, along with enhanced passenger information systems, closed circuit TV cameras, and new lighting – providing improved safety for passengers on the platform.
New fencing and a new footpath have been installed to improve accessibility between the station entrance and the northern carpark, while next to the ticket validation gates sliding gates have been installed to enhance accessibility for prams, wheelchairs and other mobility devices, and for emergency situations.
“As a government, we are focused on continually improving and enhancing our public transport network to encourage more and more people to leave the car at home and jump on to a bus, train or tram,” Mullighan said.
“Unlike the Liberal Party, we are investing in growing our public transport network, and projects such as this interchange upgrade are an important part of that investment.”
