It is an unimportant line but providing a service running from say Mile End to Tonsley (connecting with other trains to/from Adelaide and also various buses) would be better than nothing at all.

Transport Services Minister Chloe Fox said the Tonsley line was selected because it would "cause the least disruption" to Adelaide commuters as it carried the fewest passengers in the network. No reopening date has been specified.
Are my suspicions correct, in that South Australia also have an "Act of Parliament" that OFFICIALLY closes lines, as opposed to PHYSICALLY closing a train line?A Transport Department spokesman said the Tonsley line "will not be closed" and electrification work could not be carried out concurrently with the shutdown. He said it was not possible to specify when the line would reopen.

From what I can make out at both the Adelaide Metro & Adelaide Now sites, is that they are only doing work on just TWO platforms at Adelaide Suburban station. Adelaide has nine platforms, that's seven platforms available for use, for about five or so directions.
