  • North Terrace will remain open to traffic with one lane in each direction at all times through the work zone
  • Traffic will be diverted to the northern side of North Terrace
  • Works will be undertaken 24/7 to minimise disruption
  • Speed restrictions will be in place
  • Access to businesses, car parks and properties will be maintained at all times

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 help fast-track the project, by providing upgrades to the public realm and contributing to the planned East End tram stop.

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.
