The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure reminds Adelaide University, Flinders University and University of South Australia students sitting exams next week that industrial action including a four-hour work stoppage between 10am and 2pm will be undertaken that will impact the running of all train services on Monday, 29 June 2015.
Students who need to attend Wayville Pavilion at Adelaide Showgrounds or Flinders University campus for exams starting at 9am, 9.20am, 1.50pm and 2pm on Monday 29 June are advised to plan ahead and seek alternative methods of transport.
