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 650m extension of the Tonsley rail line linking the Flinders Medical Centre and Flinders University to the rail network, including 520 metres of elevated single track over Sturt Road, Laffer’s Triangle and Main South Road;
- Removal of the existing Tonsley Station and construction of a new Flinders Station; and
- An integrated shared pedestrian/cycle path adjacent the rail line.
The Department hosted a Flinders Link Project Community Information Session on Wednesday 3 October 2018 at the Marion Cultural Centre. Just over 100 members of the local community attended the session. It was a great opportunity for the Flinders Link project team to listen to the voices of the community and to provide more information about the project. The project team looks forward to continuing to work with the local community.
