GlobeLink

Overview

The State Government investigated GlobeLink, a road and rail corridor behind the Adelaide Hills to connect the National Highway and rail link from Victoria to northern Adelaide, as well as an intermodal export park and freight-only airport at the Murray Bridge end of the corridor.

The South Australian Government committed to the preparation of a Master Plan and Business Case for GlobeLink. The KPMG business case found that GlobeLink was economically unviable, costing taxpayers $7 billion with limited benefits and low demand.

Following the release of KPMG’s business case, GlobeLink will not be pursued.
