City Tram Extension


Stage 4 of the City Tram Extension Project - casting yard at Angle Park.

February Intersection Night Works

Night works at the intersection of King William Road and North Terrace will be undertaken as part of the City Tram Extension Project, occurring from Thursday 8 February to Thursday 15 February between 8pm and 5am, and Monday 19 February to Wednesday 21 February between 11pm and 5am.

These finishing works are being brought forward and during these times tram services will be replaced with substitute buses between Victoria Square and the Entertainment Centre.

The works include installation of overhead electrical insulators, laying of overhead tram wires and underground cabling.

Roads will remain open at all times during the works. However, speed and lane restrictions will be in place. Right-turn movements will not be permitted through the intersection during the work period.

Access to businesses, carparks and properties will be maintained at all times.

For information about substitute services please call the Adelaide Metro Infoline on 1300 311 108 or visit www.adelaidemetro.com.au.

Funding 

The State Government has committed $80 million in funding for the first stage of the AdeLINK tram network to the city’s East End, including the purchase of three additional trams.

The Budget commitment will deliver a one-kilometre extension along North Terrace, from King William street to East Terrace and an extension along King William Road to the Adelaide Festival Plaza precinct.

The Adelaide City Council will contribute an additional $5 million to upgrade to the public realm.

It will provide a new service to the bustling East End shopping, restaurant and tourism precinct, while further invigorating the city's cultural and education boulevard. It will also help to reactivate vacant sites, including key buildings along North Terrace.

The City Tram Extension is expected to support about 83 jobs during construction.

Background

The extension forms Stage One of the EastLINK, with future stages planned to the eastern suburbs through Kent Town. The extension also marks the first stage in the CityLINK loop around the CBD.

The extension will feature four new stops, one on King William Road servicing the Festival Plaza and three new stops along North Terrace servicing the museum and library precinct, universities and the Old Royal Adelaide Hospital Site.

The Government’s vision for the AdeLINK tram network has been endorsed as an Infrastructure Australia priority initiative following the State Government’s Integrated Transport and Land Use Plan.
