Flinders Link Project
The Flinders Link Project is a joint initiative of the Australian and South Australian Governments to extend the Tonsley rail line to create new connections to our health, innovation and education precincts.
The project will improve public transport services and provide better connectivity via a reliable, convenient and accessible elevated rail connection.
Specifically, the project proposes:
- A 650-metre extension of the current Tonsley rail line, including an elevated single track over Sturt Road, Laffers Triangle and Main South Road, linking Flinders Medical Centre and Flinders University to the passenger rail network;
- Construction of a new Flinders Station and removal of the existing Tonsley Station; and,
- An integrated shared pedestrian/cycle path adjacent the rail line from the new ramp located at the corner of Sturt Road and Birch Crescent to the new Flinders Station.
