Flinders Link Project
The Australian and South Australian Governments are jointly funding the $125 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 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.
