Flinders Link Project
On 13 May 2016, the Australian and South Australian Governments announced funding for the $85 million Flinders Link Project. This project will extend the existing Tonsley rail line to Flinders Medical Centre, creating new connections to the health precinct and Flinders University.
The project will include:
- A 650 metre extension of the Tonsley rail line linking the Flinders Medical Centre and Flinders University to the rail network, including 520 metres of elevated single track over Sturt Road, Laffer’s Triangle and Main South Road
- Removal of the existing Tonsley Station and construction of a new station adjacent to the Flinders Medical Centre; and
- An integrated shared pedestrian/cycle path adjacent the rail line.
