The Coalition’s Policy to Build the Flinders Link Rail Project

We will commit a further $43 million for the Flinders Link rail project, building a 650-metre extension of the Tonsley rail line to the Flinders Medical Centre and Flinders University. Flinders Link creates a new transport interchange at the Flinders Medical Centre and a shared path for cyclists and pedestrians. This investment will reduce travel time to the CBD by 30 minutes and improve accessibility to Flinders University and South Australia’s second largest hospital – benefitting over 26,000 people who work or study in the area.
