City South Tram Line Replacement

Image for illustrative purposes only


The City South Tram Line Replacement project is now complete.

The City South Tram line Replacement Project replaced the existing tracks along King William Street between Victoria Square (at the intersection of Gouger and Angas streets) and South Terrace. The City South tram stop at the intersection of Sturt/Halifax streets and King William Street was also replaced as part of the project.

Some modifications to existing traffic arrangements and car parking were also required in order to accommodate the dedicated tram corridor.


Construction commenced in the second quarter of 2019 and was completed in the third quarter of 2019.

Every effort was made to minimise impacts to road users, nearby businesses and residents as much as practicably possible during construction.

Stakeholder and business engagement

Input from local businesses and stakeholders helped inform the design and construction methodology and timing. The way works were scheduled was heavily influenced by the input of local businesses. Both DIT and the Alliance would like to thank all businesses for the time they spent assisting the project team in developing the project methodology and schedule.

DIT is committed to working with local businesses to minimise impacts resulting from our construction activities.

Project website

The Public Transport Projects Alliance (PTPA) has released a website, which was the main source of information, updates and notifications for the City South Tram Line Replacement project.

The PTPA was selected to deliver the design of the South Tram Line Replacement project. The PTPA brought together McConnell Dowell, Arup and Mott Macdonald with the Department of Infrastructure and Transport to deliver community-based and value-for-money public transport solutions that improve liveability and connectivity for South Australians - delivered safely and with minimal disruption to local communities.
