City Tram Extension
The department is currently undertaking daytime works to finish the tram stops on North Terrace between 10am and 3pm to avoid any impact on morning or afternoon peak, requiring some temporary traffic restrictions.
Major infrastructure works are complete, with finishing works, including the safety critical commissioning of rail signalling and electrical testing remaining. Other finishing works include, works to the platforms on North Terrace and King William Road, final line marking, asphalt and kerbing works.
Test trams are currently scheduled for mid May, followed by two weeks of driver training, with Trams services anticipated to commence late May.
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 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.
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.
