Flinders Link Project
The Australian and South Australian Governments are jointly funding the $141 million Flinders Link Project to extend the existing Tonsley rail line to the Flinders Medical Centre, creating new connections to the health, innovation and education precincts. The project will include:
- 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 the new Flinders and Tonsely Railway Stations; 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.
The Flinders Link project is expected to be completed in the second half of 2020.
