A road bridge, carrying South Road on a diversion by-passing Reynella, crossed the line shortly after Happy Valley.

The stop is now completely destroyed, the entire Willunga railway line having been dismantled in 1972, and the site is now the location of the Panalatinga Road interchange of the Southern Expressway and Main South Road.
