Test Trams are now complete with driver training to commence Monday, 16 July.

Driver training will be conducted on the full tram network, including the new sections of track along North Terrace to East Terrace, and King William Road to the Festival Plaza precinct.

Motorists and pedestrians are reminded to exercise caution while training is carried out on the new section of the network.

Passenger services are scheduled to commence Sunday, 29 July. Some finishing works will continue once passenger services commence.

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.
