Track and system performance will continue to be closely monitored as testing continues.

Profiling and asphalting night works will occur from 1am, Monday, 17 September until 4:30am, Thursday, 27 September each night, weather permitting.

Speed and lane restrictions will be in place in the vicinity of the works, with one lane maintained in each direction at all times. Signage and traffic management will be in place to advise motorists of changed conditions.  Tram services will not be affected during these works.

Access to businesses and properties will be maintained.

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 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.
