Flinders Link Project

The Australian and South Australian Governments jointly funded the $141 million Flinders Link Project to extend the Tonsley rail line to the Flinders health and education precincts.

The project included:

  • A 650-metre extension of the 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 Tonsley 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 new Flinders train line and new Tonsley and Flinders Railway Stations are now open.

The new Flinders train line and new Tonsley and Flinders Railway Stations opened for passenger services from first service Tuesday 29 December, and is now operating under an enhanced timetable, developed after extensive consultation.

Features of the new line and stations include:

  • services until late on weeknights
  • a 20-minute frequency during peak times on weekdays
  • a 30-minute frequency at all other times.
  • better station access through Shared Use Paths and Activated Pedestrian Crossings
  • new station locations providing increased access for more residents
  • improved safety, security and customer satisfaction amenities.
